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.
