Before and After

I have just started using a very old version of Photoshop Elements my Mum sent me recently...unfortunately I didn't save all the steps. This is a very basic edit and very easy. The flower is selected (traced with the mouse) and cut out so there is no longer a background and the textures added (these are Shadowhouse). It's kinda funny that this is the only photo I took of this flower because it was too windy, but ended up making for a good picture.

Click on the photo to see full effect. If you would like complete tutorials, stop by my photo blog and you'll find lots of links in the sidebar.

It doesn't even look like the same photo. Great work. Not that it was a bad photo to begin with.

This is really cool! The new background goes very nicely with the flowers!

Very pretty. I'll have to get over there and check out the tutorial. I would love to spice up some of my flower pics. :)
