I’m learning how to use photoshop

I saw this lovely owl in our local town centre last week and was trying to get a photo of him without all the distracting backgrounds, but I couldn’t manage it.


So when I got home this evening I had a go at learning how to remove backgrounds and here is my first attempt.

OwlPlenty of room for improvement, but I’m quite impressed with myself!

I’m not sure how good a pet this owl would make, especially if you had small birds or pet mice!Β  Nevertheless he is joining my collection of animals to feature in Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge

    well done. Photoshop is a bit daunting…but when you get something right it is very satisfying. Goodness though…those eyes…mesmerizing

      This one was part of a display by a company who specialise in learning to handle birds of prey, so it was easy to get quite near πŸ™‚ I need to perfect my photoshop skills & improve this picture with a better background, but I’m only a beginner! No idea how to do that yet!!

        You did well to get such a great picture of the owl. Photoshop takes time. it’s definitely not an intuitive thing! I’ve found googling things really helps. Google was my instructor lol. If you ever have a question, don’t hestiate to contact me via my contact page and I will try to help. πŸ™‚
