I finally got around to trying the PSCS2 Smart Object Tutorial and thought I've give it a try. I took a photo of some oleander flowers and isolated a portion with a mask. I made a "smart object" with this selection. After the "smart object" was created, I discovered it was editable and was able to clean up my selection. The I placed the smart objects on to my canvas. My creation is here: http://www.beaucamera.com.

Anybody else tried experimenting with this feature?

That's a sweet pic Virginia. I've not played with that feature. It looks like it lets you clone an object, change it's color, orientation , etc. Cool.

Here is another example of a PSCS2 "smart object" montage. This time my subject is a hummer I captured this afternoon with my 70-200 VR and 17EII TC. This is starting to be fun!

Very good Virginia,

Tough to learn all the PS stuff.

Layers throw me for a loop......Just can't grasp it.

Thanks, Gale! :smile:

Yes, PS is a complicated program. I've been taking courses. That's sure helped! Then there's practice, practice, practice.
You can also find tutorials on the web. Sometimes biting off those one at a time helps.
When it comes to layers, just think of a cake. You can put different fillings in each one.

Here's my lastest creation. I also posted in the General Forum thread because I wanted thank you to Patrict and Paul for their work on the new forum site.
