no, i cannot use photoshop any better than that.
stop laughing at me.
i was so proud, just that i got the picture to be the right height and width and whatnot!
also, there is very little hope of my skills improving much.
john brought photoshop over, set it up on my computer, and taught me how to re-size pictures to fit on my blog.
which i sort-of forgot how to do right after he left.
the next day, i called him up and said:
i'd really like to be able to edit weird light out of people's eyes in some of my pictures, is this something that's possible?
to which he replied:
well, it's not impossible, technically. but no, i can't teach you to do that.
my first instinct was to be irritated, but then i remembered that it must be very difficult to be john: i ask him to teach me how to do stuff all the time, and if i don't understand it in the first 30 seconds of his explanation, my brain stops listening. i don't do it on purpose...it's just that, in my head, his words start to sound like this: lala, something. lalalalalala. christ, he's talking a lot. dodooododooodo. damn, bill maher is going to start in 5 minutes. lala. i'm hungry. la.
then, when he's done talking, i'm just giving him this totally blank look and he probably wants to stab himself in the eardrum.
it's not his fault.
my brain does the same thing when confronted with any scenario that it doesn't immediately understand.
which explains why i've never been able to do math, but i digress.
the point is, there is little hope for me and my photoshopping skills.
so, if you were going to point out this, that, or what-have-you technical term about how i improve that picture?
i do appreciate the gesture, but you should know, in advance, that i will likely have no clue what you are talking about.
you might as well just do it for me, and then send it back to me.
(jen, i'm talking to you).
