Using Blend If to Change PS Sky - Part 2 Now Up!

This week's Tuesday Photoshop Tip is now up on YouTube! More about using Blend If to change the sky behind a bunch of little fiddly branches without needing any kind of mask.

The tips for the next few weeks are probably going to be fairly short. We bought a new house; closed on Feb. 26, and now we're in the "renovation" phase.

It was a foreclosed property, like a bit more than half the homes being sold in MI right now, so there's quite a bit to do.

The old carpet was completely ruined, so we've ripped it all out, and are having bamboo floors put in instead. The last people to live there removed all the wall cabinets from the bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry area. So those all have to be replaced.

They also did little vindictive things like taking a part from the water heater, so it's non-functional. That part is on order now, and we'll have hot water there as soon as it comes in. I hope.

Most of the ceiling fixtures were also taken, so we're putting in fans instead. Lots of stuff like that. And quite a bit of cleaning needs to be done, inside and out.

And then, of course, there is all the sorting and throwing away to be done after 10 years of living in this rental home. (The longest I've ever lived anywhere in my entire life, by the way.) And then the eventual move itself.

So, I'm going to be somewhat busy for the next couple of months. Everything should be done by the first of May, though, and hopefully I'll be able to do more work than ever, when the computer is no longer in a basement!
