Making the most of Photoshop

My mum recently got a new laptop and downloaded a free trial of Photoshop Elements 9 and i've spent the past few days trying to get to grips with it and trying to decide if it's worth taking the plunge and buying the full version when the trial runs out. For photo editing and digital art stuff I usually use GIMP but i've always wanted to try Photoshop as I think the images/things created end up looking of a higher quality.
My skills in using photo manipulation software are a bit rusty now as I haven't done anything for a while but here are are a couple of things i've created in past few days:



I found Photoshop quite a lot harder to use than GIMP but the image quality is definitely better. I'm still not sure if i'd be worth me paying £50 for it though.

Joie De Vivre

I haven't blogged in over a month now. Nothing really has been happening. I've just been focusing on trying to get myself better.

Yesterday I had the urge to draw for the first time in ages.

I wanted to do something happy....


It means 'Joy of Living'. I hope I start enjoying my life more soon.
