IN THE NIP WITH MAU

by Janet Blue on May 16, 2015

As the Cat Scout‘s Worldwide Wildcats had the grand opening of their Catnip Greenhouse yesterday, Mauricio asked if he could do some nippy Caturday Art. He selected a photo previously used in the post, “Thankful Thursday: The Return & Nip” in April of last year. Here’s that photo of him.

I have PhotoShop Elements 12 installed on my computer but have never used it. I decided to take the plunge today. After trying a variety of options, I selected to do this photo stack. I continued to experiment with additional options but did not come up with anything I really liked, so I loaded the photo back into my usual photo editing program, Picasa. With that I increased the saturation and added the drop shadow frame.

Great job. You’d never know it is your first attempt! Mom says the learning curve with any new software is a pain. Love the colors.

First, that’s a great photo. I like the big mug planter.
I also like how you stacked the photos and brightened everything up in your art photo.
