Home Office Inspiration

Like everyone else, I have been consumed with browsing Pinterest lately… It even brought out a side of me that is interested in interior design (which I never knew existed!). I’m still not crazy about the manual labour that goes into decorating however, I enjoy looking at pictures. Currently, my dining room table is doubling as a desk but I’m working on it! 

Here’s a collection of drool-worthy workspaces:

Curves Practice! (Photoshop CS5)

My Photoshop CS5 trial is almost over :( Time to shell out for the real thing!

I am obsessed with the Lens Correction & Curves features that I learned while applying the Vintage effect in my previous post. Here are some photos from the day my daughter was born (can’t believe it’s been almost 12 weeks!!) with a bit of a Vintage feel. I played around with the Curves, Brightness/Contrast and also used the Blur tool on the first photo.

These are the originals, for comparison:

Project #12: Vintage Effect (Photoshop CS5)

I absolutely adore photos with the ‘vintage’ effect and I finally know how to do it!  Check out the awesome tutorial below to learn how to edit your own pictures.  It only takes a few minutes to do and after you have one photo done you can easily swap out the background images to try the look on countless photos (it’s addictive!).

Project #11: Blended Photos (Photoshop CS5)

As promised, I created my own version of the following photo:

I did not use any tutorials for this project (!) so it’s definitely not perfect but I’m excited that I was (mostly) able to figure it out!

I took this image of myself:

… And combined it with this background image which I took in England:

I played around with the Opacity and used the eraser tool to blend the photos, then changed the colouring and duplicated the image to get my final result:

TA-DA :)
