I've been wanting to get photoshop for awhile. I am always a few years behind, technologically speaking. I found it on sale for a price I couldn't refuse and then spent every possible moment this past weekend staring at my computer screen. I am not one for instruction manuals so I had quite a time figuring it out... the little I did actually figure out. Just what I need, something to pass all my free time that will frustrate me beyond words. I may just throw it out the window. So this was my first and only try. It only took me a few hours to achieve this...hopefully I am over the learning curve.This is the before photo. Now if someone could explain how to "photoshop" that orange cord out of the background of this photos (in under 50 words, I get confused easily) I would be really appreciative.
