Photoshop Help

OK, did I do this right? My friend took pictures of our girls trying out for cheerleading and they weren't the best pictures in the world but all I did was tell PE 8.0 to auto correct it because I really don't know hoe to use PE 8.0.

What do you all think?

Oh and my daughter is the blondish one on the right end. #29

Oh and all the girls from this group made the squad. 4 on JV and 2 on Varsity.

    Terina, maybe it is the way you forwarded it to me then? They are sized 600x450 when I download them. I can't even zoom in a little, it is all pixels. I lose all details.

    I have Photoshop7, if you want to mail it to me if Amy can't get it and I will correct it. It looks like it needs to be cropped and color corrected also. If you have a dropper icon in Photoshop Elements, you can click on what is supposed to be white with the white eye dropper and what is supposed to be black with the black dropper and then try to find a grey area and click with the grey dropper and that should bring the pix into alignment. Let me know if I can help you. I know that PE doesn't have the same tools as Photoshop7 so I don't know what you have to work with.

    jtranches -

    send me the original file and DO NOT use your email client, apparently (from what I gather when you tried with amy), your email client is automatically resizing down your file. I also need the original file. I have CS4, and do alot of photoshop work.

    instead of using your email client, go to the web at: http://free.mailbigfile.com/

    and direct your file to email to me at patwl then the apersand symbol then verizon.net (you put it together all no spaces). When I get the file, I will make it better for you. Angel, your attempt is extremely pixelated.............

    In fooling around, I vectorized the photo using illustrator and brought it into .mtc but the forum will not allow me to upload the attachment..........too big........jtranches if you email me off board, I'll give you the file.....

    Jen, I don't have your email on the computer I am on.

    Pat, the original image I had was what her daughter sent me and it was from what she posted on MySpace. She obviously knows how to shrink them down for that purpose. I got the original camera images from her mom earlier but since I was resetting the office computer today because the dear man I call Jim AKA the hubby did something to it to make it NOT work anymore, I couldn't see to well on the iPhone to do a whole lot of anything other then post a message or two on this thread.

    Jeanette, explain the Almond Joy picture please. My brain is hurting from all the info I got at the meeting. Did you know that cheerleading really is work and not just a bunch of girls in short skirts jumping and yelling? I knew it but really didn't know ALL involved. My DD is going to be one busy girl!!!!!!! They do at least get 1/2 year credit towards PE for it. Now need to contact the school to ask if she needs to be in PE all year then.

    Pat, what and how did you vectorize what image. I have Illustrator CS4 Illustrator CS2 and Photoshop Elements 8.0. Can I do what ever you did with one of those? I have no clue as to how to play in any Adobe programs. They are on the list for me to learn.

    Angel, thanks for keeping the message at the top for me or did you try to fix it. In NO WAY was it your fault because the original image was VERY LOW in quality. THANKS for all you did.

    Poor Terina, long day, huh?

    The Almond Joys were a pick-me-up for Angel. ;-)

    Sounds like you could use a little rest now too...

    Yes I could but I have so much to do. Need to do dishes, 2 loads of laundry and write a letter to the sponsers that we would like to sponser my daughter. If I wasn't afraid of the shop at night, I would go down there and work but it really creeps me out to be there in the dark without DH AKA the hubby.

    bumping this to the top - terina check your email from me - I sent you the edited files - did both shots -

    If terina gives me approval, I will show my edited shots and work. I brought both of these into camera raw, adjusted, and then on the photoshop side, dodged the faces to bring those out of the dark..............(there was another shot Terina had which she did not post which is SO MUCH nicer than the shot she posted!!!!!!!!!!)

    I'm ALOT better in photoshop than in .MTC - I haven't the experience with vectors enough yet................

    But there's a lot of designing you can do in Photoshop just using the custom shapes and such.

    Pat go ahead and share, I don't mind a bit. I am dowloading them right now.

    What does actual Photoshop do over Photoshop Elements and do I NEED (Stupid Question I Know) Photoshop?

    watter rabbit -

    I agree, but thus far, my emphasis had always been on rasters for photos, and restoration of old photos, I never thought about using photoshop from a graphic standpoint..............it was always about photos.....................
