By way of a follow up to my club presentation last year on 'Virtual Bonsai' and to cover requests from members on 'how do you do this?' once a month I intend to highlight a virtual tip, task or technique I use when doing virtuals.
From the outset I think its important to convey that though I use photo manipulation software as part of my business, I wouldn't describe myself as an expert. I have heard it told that when using any software, individuals only tend to use a tenth of the software's capabilities; they just tend to use a different tenth to everybody else!! So please bear this in mind when reviewing the hints- there is always more than one way to skin a cat!!
I use Photoshop, the industry leading software for this type of work; and will therefore demonstrate using this software. The theory should transfer to other software (unless it's really basic & then I would suggest that if your serious about doing virtuals, you need to get you're wallet out!!) -it will probably just be achieved differently, so you may have to find your software manual.
(I'm aware this is a bonsai club site & some may not be interested in virtuals at all -so ill try to keep it brief, review how its going & if it starts to get too large or uninteresting let me know!!!.....cue Les.)
So if there's anything your interested in achieving or need help with, let me know and I can attempt to show (or figure out!) how its done.
