Photoshop Elements Tutorial

Clean up those White Backgrounds!

Painting # 39 of 52/52 Challenge- Mushroom – Watercolor Mlighthipe©2012

I recently had one of my readers ask me how I clean up the background on my botanical paintings in Photoshop Elements. I spent about 3 weeks composing my eBook, “Scan YOUR Art” and decided this time that I would try to make a video using the Mac video capture. This is my first video! It came out much longer than I thought it would, but as I began I realized that there is so much that instructors don’t say that I found I had been talking for 26 minutes!  I uploaded it onto YouTube and when I viewed it on the screen it was not as clear as I had hoped. I decided to put it out on the www and see what ya’ll think of it. If you have any comments, questions or feedback…. please let me know. I hope that you find it useful.

I have gotten some feedback from readers that the quality of the video is blurring when the screen goes to full size. I am looking into a few programs that will be clearer. My suggestion is to go directly to YouTube and watch the video there. Readers are saying the YouTube channel is a better video. Here is a direct link:
