DJ Pettitt's Digital Manipulations Class is Underway!

Hi all: This is a card that I made from the first exercise we had in the class. The photo was large originally, so we had to drastically crop it, which created a lot of noise. Then we had to get rid of the noise, eliminate some distracting elements and apply some filters. This has been a HUGE undertaking for DJ, and I have been at my computer for the last 3 days. I didn't even get out of my PJ's today! My back is beginning to feel it so I am going to get outside to paint Friday as the temp is supposed to climb to 0C -wahoo! Welcome to winter in Calgary.

Enjoy!
To find out more info about the course, or anything, please email me.

Good for you!!! I read through this exercise but didn't actually do it. Looks like DJ is getting lots of questions from her students. I hope she can answer all of them!

Did you understand all the stuff from the exercise? I had to do it a couple of times in order to really understand it.

Hi Silentwitness: Wow, thank you! Unfortunately this isn't my image nor my own work, except for the words :) This was a step by step class project. Wait til I get really good!
