Photoshop – a toy with which you have to dirty your hands when you are ultimately a teenager whether it is the part of your high school curriculum or not. Instead, let me phrase it like this: Photoshop for ALL AGES! Photoshop, Dream-weaver, Flash, Corel Draw and many more have been playing a great part in nourishing the young minds overflowing with creativity enabling them to sketch their minds out on a virtual white sheet with the help of some enthralling virtual tools. This is an extraordinary idea for people (like me) who would have many creative and innovative ideas at the back of their minds but due to poor drawing skills; they lack in presenting their thoughts efficiently.
“PHOTOSHOP FOR ALL AGES” – once who gets addicted to editing through these incredulous software; their vision is sharpened with technicality. However, they are able to point out at minor and major flaws naturally with a bare glance comparatively to those not-so-crazy-editor-beings. Professionalism is always encouraged when it is blended with fun and creativity and thus at the end of the day versatility always have the biggest share.
I have been having fun with many of my personal photographs as well as my friend’s photographs and this is one reason why Photoshop and some of the other software works like a heart beat for me. The “Editing” treasures my boring world; I love to add “MY-SIGNATURE-TOUCH” to all what I own especially the collection of “GOTCHAS” – it gives me and my friends a good time to laugh hysterically while comparing the real shot with the edited ones. Mitsy (my very best friend) is fond of my editing. He would make fun of me, pull my leg and do all he can to just prove how I made a fool out of myself while editing our shots but at the end of the day he is the first one to thank me for reframing things amusingly which makes our day so very special every time. Photoshop is steaming software – ALL IN ONE PACKAGE where enjoyment is guaranteed.
I was first introduced to the editing world when I was twelve and Photoshop became the part of my secondary school curriculum – at that instant I hated it to death. Of course, as a part of the curriculum which student would embrace it counting on its benefits but after all, when I turned 15 and I made my first website with the help of some online tutorials on youtube; that was the smashing moment – the time I fell in love with Photoshop. With that website, I won two titles – one from my high school and the other from a computer agency to which I presented my website with the help of a power point presentation. The titles were “The Wizard of Computer” and “The Next Bill Gates” respectively. From then onward, Photoshop was all fun. I earned US$ quite a few times on the basis of these editing skills by offering as a freelancer editor. The experience was mind blowing and encouraged me to learn more about other things in the immense Cyber-World so as to survive in the society where unemployment is a huge propaganda.
Therefore, there is a short message to this post. Evaluate your creativity and pursue it to enhance and improve your skills that can help you in future to fight the disastrous world. No one lags creativity, we all are able to express ourselves in one way or the other. For example: the writers are creative to construct a golden bridge through a simple pen, an artist displays his creativity with a simple paint brush (and colors of course), a lover showcases his creativity to accomplish the destination of love through his efforts and no one in this world is less creative than the other. We all have our own potentials to flourish and prosper accordingly. Believe in yourself and you have a way to pave.
You are right and you are wise for your age! Keep down that path.
Awwww.. You are just more sweeter and encouraging than anyone 🙂 Thank you so much.
I loved this blog post, you show such great talent, and now a paying talent. Awesome! I have been thinking of getting a copy of photoshop from ebay to add to my new photographic interests.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Hey Alex! Thank you so much for your encouragement as always! If you are planning to get a copy of Photoshop, get Dream-weaver along with it. It is going to help you learn many techniques in a much easier way!
I am sure, ya will enjoy working as your creativity will be challenged through more than 16 million colors and lots of amazing tools! Have fun!!
Thank you, I will take your recommendation up and look for Dream-weaver too.
You are always welcome 🙂
If you need any assistance anywhere, you are always welcome to inquire.
Anytime Alex 🙂
Cool…this poet knows digital arts too, Poetoshop 😀
When I was 15, I don’t even know what a website is…but you created one 🙂
I liked your photoshopped hair style and makeover.
FYI: your first love was my first love too 😉
Woahh!! I think, it must be the “FIRST LOVE” of many – it is so amazing! The make over and hair style are like the lamest editing I have ever done but I needed to show how things can be converted into fun as well and just not professionalism! And thank you so much for liking it though many told me to never use a RED LIPSTICK in reality after seeing this photo. That photo was a real LOL ans chaos.
POETOSHOP – damn!! I am literally blushing! I loved the title anyhow 😉
Love you loads B and thank you for your lovely comments 🙂

Thank you so much for the appreciation; you definitely made my day 😉
No, seriously,, When I find someone more creative than me then only I say it and generally it doesn’t happen 😛
Wow! I am impressed with the steaming confidence!! Keep it up 😉

I have always wanted to make my own beautiful pics using photo shop or some other venue…. maybe I will look into it soon….
Come on, you look so beautiful and young in your gravatar! So don’t bull crap me; your natural photos come like so much glittery and beautiful 😉

“My Angel Of Night” is truly a blockbuster!!! I am loving it like hell!!!

Haha! It was at the age of 15, I started doing kinda practical basic sessions at school such as slide show presentation stuffs and all. But a gal of that age, who had a crush with web site concurs means? 🙂
Enough maturity, heterogeneous thoughts and ideas within this age made you different for me from my other pals, gal. You are absolutely SUPERB-COOL.\m/\m/
Thank you Rahul for declaring me absolutely SUPER COOL!!
I love that word actually 😉
My pleasure. 🙂
Haha! That’s why, I used to mention you so. 😀 🙂
Much love to you too.
Respects and salutes to you, VERSATILE GAL!\m/\m/
Awww… Thank you so much 🙂
You deserve it in all respects, our “Ambiguous Words” gal. 😀 🙂
i will love to learn it.
Awwww.. It sin’t difficult at all! The hub of learning – Youtube or Google and you are done love [Smiles]
A fun post!
It was indeed! [Smiles]
I like the idea, many people are afraid to photoshop their own photos because some think that it is not original. But we take photos for our happiness, why bother about what others think? 🙂
I never bother about what others think of me, it is my life and i have my rules to do justice with my right of living my very own life!
So I always try to do funky things in order to have fun and bring smiles to the faces of my friends!!
I am going back to read some of you earlier blogs. I don’t have Photoshop, but I do play around with Gimp and Inkscape. In fact I play around with them a lot. I don’t do much original work, but I love following the tutorials. I like making things and sending them to others. I don’t feel bad if I see an idea and then attempt to copy it. I then get a new idea.
I really do need to clean up my GIMP folder….full of my junky stuff.
It is similar to your post of HAVING FUN!! Once we know how can we have fun with our photos through editing and have a good time with friends, it definitely becomes encouraging!!
Well, when it is editing, nothing is JUNK! I love to load my hard disk with junk too – the feeling of throwing away is disastrous!
