Playing around with Photoshop

For well over a week, I have been busily working at my lessons in the Adobe Photoshop Classroom in a Book.  Today I decided to take a break from the proscribed lessons and play around with the book cover image I created a couple of weeks ago.  I tweaked colors and added borders and text.  Here is the result:


Please don't fall asleep.  At least it's an improvement over this:


But clearly I need to learn a few more things about graphic design and Adobe's tools for generating it.  I've ordered a few more books on the subject.  I've only used Photoshop so far. InDesign is bound to prove more helpful for layout and text matters.

  1. The colors are much improved! I think it's a really charming cover, much better than many I see on the shelves anymore. There is a lot of whitespace around that title though. Lovely work, I'm going to subscribe to your blog :)

  2. Thank you, Desiree! I'll be learning InDesign soon. I hope to get a better handle on text issues then.
