I’ve been playing in Elements 8–and I think I’m getting a little of the hang of MCP’s Texture Applicator. I pulled this texture from a Flickr group; there is an amazing assortment of free textures out there! The picture is of my cat Bash, who died in 2007. For some unexplainable reason, I took tons of pictures of him with my film camera, but only a handful with my digital. The ones I have were taken indoor, with flash, and they really aren’t great. But when I added texture to this one, it turned it into an artsy portrait. Bit by bit, I’m learning Elements… and someday I’m going to say that I’ve mastered it!
