Yea , so much i need to get down with the blur deal .. and i need a proper mouse these trackpads just .. SUCK .. lol

I also used something elements has but im going to try again with just a selection tool type of thing then do my own blur .. elements trys to make things easier but , for me its harder . id rather do it myself haha .

But seriously thanks for the opinion/insight .. :headbang:

i agree hate the track pads with a passion. cordless usb mouse wallmart under 20 bucks when i got it:)logitech.. ive been working on just sharpening specific things after selecting them like the piece im about to post with the railroad xrossing. i liked the natural blur of the bg but wanted the sign detailed and able to make lighting adjustments to just that and the bg seperatly. it gets time consuming but its like anything else if ya want it done right ya gota do it yourself lol. ive never worked with elements so im not sure as to wat may or may not be dif from cs3. but im sure its got most of the same tools and way of working in layers right?

Yea man , layers are still something third world to me . but SLOWLY getting the hang of it all .. its getting there . been working with the selective tool deal and making layers and so forth to adjust certain thingers ..

But i think joanna use's Adobe Cs sumthing or other .. ill have to jump on her comp one of these days ..

yeah trust me man im still learning on my own. tutorials make me fall asleep as does reading so i just keep messing with it till i get it:)just keep in mind each layer you create can be edited in itself and get in the habit of naming the layer cuz if you start building and forget you may screw something up you didnt want to.. ill do my best if there is something your trying to figure out.. just ask:)

ok this one i have to say needs abit more work. only in the edges of the chair tho. there are pieces blurred and piecs sharp up around the headrest and such. im not sure how you went about it but im guessing you used a selection tool and it grabbed parts it shouldnt have. while the selection tool is quick and usually pretty good, you sometimes need to just use something like the pen tool and i use the magnet setting on it zoom in close and take my time selecting outlines. zoom in to the chair and look around the edges and you will see what i meen. and i hope the info helps ya out alil more:)
