The tutorial on grass was quite informative. I can see lots of ways this can be useful, not just with grass. I learned how to fill my layer mask with a color from it, also! Yeah, me!
Now whether it helped my current pictures, that remains to be seen. I didn't have time to make a before and after collage, so you'll just have to scroll up and down. I do have some actions installed with clipping masks, etc. but I couldn't tell you how to use them!
I'll start with my grass picture. I actually liked this shot a lot (except for his blurry face) and didn't really notice the grass, but I can see the difference. It is a pain to go around Huckleberry so he isn't green. Should have used my lasso tool, but was more than half way done when I realized it.
|After--I don't remember the tutorial telling me to set the blending on the grass to soft light, but it must have--or another blending mode. Straight on, this was not pretty!|
I played with adding some green and brown to this picture of Huckleberry in a tree, also:
This was my favorite image, and really I just like it as it is, but I am happy with the edits.
