Brown pelican

My effected brown pelican

Picture of the Moment

Yesterday while I was playing around with frames in Photoshop (see my post Using Photoshop CS6 to frame your pictures), I accidentally hit a keyboard shortcut which applied an effect to a picture to which I had already applied a different effect.

This is something that I had not thought about, applying effect upon effect upon effect, ad nauseum.

I’ve always done just one effect and went on my merry little way.

When I finished, I saved what I had created:

P.S. Anyone notice how difficult it is to upload pictures to our blogs after the WordPress changes made late yesterday?

    How hard would it be for WP to send out an email blast about their changes? It was so easy to upload before and now add extra steps…No more video uploads unless you pay for it. Well, we should just be glad that this service, for some of us is still free. Lovely what you did with the pelican photo!

        I noticed, and wrote about it. I think the e-mail blast is brilliant. They’ll change whatever they want to change. A heads up about the changes is just plain, old-fashioned courtesy. Am I dating myself? xoM

    That’s a cool effect, almost like a starburst or something. Ya ya, the whole media editor is messed up. It doesn’t seem to want to look at any of my new photo’s in Iphoto to updoad. I’ve been uploading to an on line editor and taking them from there ???

    Very cool effect. Otherwise the pelican would wonder what’s going on. 🙂

    WP has a way of rolling out “improvements” when no improving is really needed.

    I always enjoy your photographs, especially love birds! This one is unique in its technique and I would not be able to imitate this! You give us ideas, hope and possibilities with your excellent posts!
