poor man’s photoshop

Filed under: carmen, me, random — Jana @ 8:52 pm

Since I have not been able to talk my husband into spending $600 and buying me photoshop… I heard about this website where you can download a program that is kinda similar, and it’s my favorite price…FREE. It’s called Gimp. Obviously it cant do as much as photoshop, but I think you have to be an expert to use most of that stuff anyway. What you can do is edit your photos and make yourself look cuter(as if that’s possible… you little cutie, you). I still have to fiddle with it some more but so far, I really like it. Maybe Wendy, my resident photo expert, can come teach me a few things. Until then, this is what I came up with on my own.

On a totally unrelated note, here is another cool website I found…If you would like to know how many of your favorite caffeinated beverage it would take to kill you click here.



  1. Try Photoshop Elements. It’s a smaller, less expensive version of Photoshop. It’s more for the amateur Photoshop user. I used it for a long time before coughing up the big bucks.

  3. Hey looking good. You’re brave to dive into a totally new program like that.

    I can teach you cool things on Elements.

  4. I love it!!! I love that glow lighting–it really does make things look almost dreamy. I’m going to download it right now.

  5. Very cute! I love the stumps. Photoshop is absolutely amazing. It makes me sick what Greg can do on it, but i think you editing turned out really good. You have such a good eye to do stuff like that.

  6. These pictures are awesome. I especially like what you have done to the last picture of Carmen. It really brings out her long eyelashes. If you want to know about another great FREE website that you can use like PhotoShop it is called Picasa and is on Google: http://picasa.google.com/
