Something of note today. Adobe has released CS2 for free on their site. Apparently they were tired of keeping up the authentication servers for it. So go get it. It’s seriously powerful and useful.
I’m a big proponent of light photoshop use in cosplay. I cannot tell you how many crappy pics I get back from the dim hallways of a con that need to be brightened up. Or when I hand off my camera for a picture of myself and I get back a picture that wasn’t even framed right. Photoshop helps with that immensely.
Now, if you’re a kid and your parents don’t let you add software to the family PC then I suggest Meitu. It is a Chinese site that will give you a lot of editing freedom. It’s not stupid powerful like photoshop but it is really good. It’s easy to use and free. No downloading needed.
Get used to Photoshop posts. I have a lot to cover.
