This is just me having fun with Photoshop after spending half of the day watching Photoshop tutorials on YouTube. Can I just say how much I love YouTube? I love it. A lot. It’s a beautiful thing. To coin a Reeism, I think I want to marry it and have its babies.

Here is my big boy and his monkey, named Fred. Fred has found a nice little place on his boy’s back.

  3. How cool is that poster? I am loving Photoshop, too — I never thought of going to You Tube for tutorials! I just learned how to do animated gif files the other day, and have been entertaining everyone with goofy Christmas photo animations with everyone. Great stuff!

  4. The poster effects are ROCKIN’, girl! Love it! :)(and that flying monkey found himself a very nice landing spot, thankyouverymuch!) 🙂

  5. Nan,That is very cool. I want photoshop next now that I have my new Nikon D40x. Tell me, is it really worth the money. And you are right, your friends are beautiful before retouching.
