The Photoshop was like a ‘ brain explosion ‘ for me. Despite of this, I have learned many things, for instance how to create layers, increase or decrease elements. Changing colours was especially interesting. Sometimes the image changed beyond recognition. At the beginning I selected drawings from the swatch book
Communication with teachers was easiest for me in this project. They tried to help me and answered all my question . Challenges began with the first step. I immediately realised the lack of experience with the computer. Photoshop looked like a monster ready to eat me. It was difficult to focus on my work. I forgot the sequence of actions. Despite the fact that I wrote down how and what to do , I often got stuck. I felt helpless. By the end of the second day of training I began to remember the simplest things such as changing the colours, multiplying the pictures, reducing or increasing elements. Extra workshops was extremely useful . The result can be seen in the first picture below.
It was wonderful to transform one image into a completely different one. Every time when I was able to move forward I was happy. All my time I was engaged with a Photoshop. My children also gave me a couple tips. I had learned how to create layers, filters and effects, how to save and export images.
