Don't trash that photo!

posted on 10th of october, 2008

This is for any paint program you have.

Just because those shots are out of focus or blurred or for whatever reason you do not like how they turned out.. you can still use them for alot of other projects.

I will show you how you can create a background using some plug-in effects.
I have Paint Shop Pro Photo x2 Ultimate, and I will be using some plug in effects from the KPT Collection.

Your really looking for blurred and color. The possiblities are endless..
Warning, this can take some time playing around with the effects and layer blend modes..and become additive for awhile.. ;0)

Very clever! Now I am going to slap myself for all the images I just threw out. It is true the minute you clean house and throw stuff out... you need it.
