I love using Photoshop, I honestly don't know what I would do without it.

But, if you're new to this awesome tool, it can be a little intimidating.

So, I'm making it my mission to teach Photoshop in short “Quick Tip” videos to help you acquire skills to make your online photos pop and bring in new readers and customers. This is my first “Photoshop Quick Tip Clip” and I'm pretty excited to get it posted. I'm covering an amazing feature that quite honestly blows me away with how easy it is to use and how well it works.

Let me give you a little background, then on to the video.

The other day my hubby and I were headed to our daughter's house for dinner and on the way we saw the most beautiful big pink Texas sky.  I had to have a photo, so I was glad I wasn't driving. The car was moving so I did my best to capture the moment between telephone poles and electrical lines, but it was hard because there were so many. I did my best but this is what I got  ~ beautiful but yuck, lines and poles, too many lines and poles.

But, remember, I use Photoshop. So, when I got home, I did a little Photoshop magic and cleaned it up. Now, the photo is ready for me to add a quote or saying and I can easily use it on social media or anywhere for that matter. Since I have an e-commerce site selling Texas items, this would make a lovely addition to my Faceback page. See the short 5-minute video below to see how easy it was to remove the electrical line and poles that muddled up the beautiful sky.

I didn't change the color of the sky, that's exactly what it looked like through my iPhone and with the naked eye, but I did make the grass a bit more green. It would be easy to also lighten, darken, or even adjust the color of the sky but I didn't cover color correction in the video, I wanted to keep it short. I only covered how to remove those unwanted elements. Check it out.
