Computer fun

So the other day I was looking around my computer folders for a picture of my house in Texas. No such luck. But I stumbled across a picture of my girlfriends wedding day. I helped some with her flowers and decorations which I sadly don't have pictures of. In fact this is the only picture I seem to have. My batteries must have died. :(

Anyhow it gave me an idea to try my hand at editing with photoshop. I had seen a tutorial and was inspired to give it a try. Somehow I never could figure out how to get the image darkened to black but I like seeing them with just the pop of purple. It reminds me of warhol pop art. Now remember I am a computer-tard so if I can do this you can too, trust me.

Here's the final result. I chose her favorite color, purple! And it was printed at costco on 5x7 matte for a whopping .33 cents. Not a bad present for her upcoming birthday once framed and wrapped up in a pretty presentation! Hope she doesn't read this post but if so Happy Birthday early JC! Now I have plans to make ones of my kids as well. And this would make a great present for Grandparents with Christmas right around the corner.
