Extracted Objects in Photoshop!

I've been extracting photos today. A new gimmick DJ showed us yesterday. I only got 'round to it today, but oh what fun. Here's the original butterfly in a flower background. And here is my extracted butterfly. Not perfect, but this was my first shot at this photoplay!

Here's my original garden angel.

And here she is extracted from her herb garden background.

Sorry, no time today to put these extractions into or on top of or around in or among other photos. Perhaps tomorrow. Well, of course, I'll show you when one is completed. I don't squirrel away my projects. They are out there front and center on this (my) blog. DJ Pettitt's "Memories and Manipulations" workshop has done wonders for my photoshop learning curve! I told her yesterday that this has definitely kept me off the street and out of bars!


  1. Marty -- I'm glad DJ's workshop is keeping you off the streets. LOL I haven't tried the extraction exercise yet, but you did a great job!

  2. Thanks, Kate, this was actually my favorite of the exercises. Was easier since I was beginning to learn Photoshop terminology and how to maneuver around in the work space (as narrow as it is)that my mental capacity made seem large!


Thanks for stopping by...
