For Valentine’s Day. “)
I composed and shot this image back in 2014. Since I hadn’t thought of anything else to compose for today I thought why not publish it for Wild Wednesday?
I did change what the Sweetheart said to fit both of today’s themes using Photoshop CC. Here’s a quick run down on how I did that in case you’d like to know how I did it.
Firstly, I created a new layer then I grabbed the spot removal tool and erased what the Sweetheart said.
Next, I grabbed the Horizontal Text Tool and switched my paint/text color to bright pink, changed the font size to 6pt I think it was then I typed the first line WILD. Then I summoned the Free Transform Tool to turn the text to the right direction, then summoning the move tool I moved it into place.
I did that two more times for the number 4, and word YOU!. Then I saved the whole thing as a PSD file. After that I added a new layer and cleaned up a few specular highlights on the ceramic figures then I merged the layers, resized it for the web, added my watermark, and saved it as a JPEG.
There is more than one to change the word on something like this, and probably an easier way too, but that’s how I did it. 🙂
I hope you all have a sweet day!

So cute, Daborah! Have to read this again to let it sink in more -always fun to learn more about photo shop:) Did you go on any photo excursions lately? It’s cold here, so I don’t come further than my yard, lol!
This antique set of Mickey and Minnie are precious! 💘
The technical work you did to change the message was so amazing and you have patience!!
I enjoyed hearing how you created this in photoshop, Deborah! ❤️ Something I’d like to learn more how to do. I took a class several years ago. I’m on the computer all day for work so would rather create art I guess when I’m not working… but I also like to do my blog! Priorities I guess! 😉 Lol! I love Mickey and Minnie Mouse! 💕❤️
It is SO cute and made me smile when I saw it in my feed 🙂
🙂 Thank you so much! I’m glad it made you smile.
It’s so amazing what can be changed and created through Photoshop. I really need to get in there and try it out. I love the playfulness of this shot Deborah! 🙂
Photoshop is an amazing tool. I only know how to do a little of what it can do.
Thank you so much!
All that work for a seamless result! Nice eork, Deborah!
Thank you so much Gordon!
Cute! Clever girl. 😉💕💐
Thank you! xx
So cute and awesome to know the technical side of it!
Thanks Deborah. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate a lesson like this. Every time I try to look up how to do something in PhotoShop, I get directed to an 8-10 minute video. I like the videos, but sometimes, short and sweet works just fine. Nice job on the photo and the explanation.
Thanks Dan! I thought about going down a longer path, explaining where the tools are in the panel, and how to change the paint color, but thought …”oh that’s not going to be a quick run down then, and possibly confusing. Like going down a rabbit hole!” So, I stuck to the basics.
I like watching video tutorials as well, but they tend to go fast, so I pause, rewind, and replay steps a lot. Which takes up so much time! I really do prefer written step by step directions, with video back up. 🙂
You rock Photoshop! Cute pic. Happy Valentine’s Day, Deborah. 💖
Thank you so much Camie! Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
great job – and thanks for the little tutorial! Happy Valentine’s Day Deborah!
Thank you Jodi! Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
Have a ‘wild’ V-Day, Deborah! 🙂
Thank you Donna! I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day too!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Deborah! Hope it’s a wild one 😉
Not too wild. 🙂 Hope you have a lovely Valentine’s day too!
Thanks for the instructions. 🙂
My pleasure! Thanks for reading and looking Judy!
Love it, Deborah. And thanks for the how-to. I put PhotoShop on my computer, but haven’t had time to try and learn to use it yet… months later… I got it because I want to make “line drawings” of my images for my Atonement books. I hope to make an adult coloring book. Anyhow, this is adorable. Happy Valentine’s Day hugs!
Thank you so much Teagan! There’s a steep learning curve but worth it if you end up being able to do what you envision doing.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! Hugs back at ya! xx
I have Lynda.com through my job. So I’ve found a good tutorial, but I only get to watch it a few minutes a day — and I’m not with my own computer. But based on a few youtube videos I found, there is no simple way to do what I want. It seems complicated even for an expert… let alone a dilettante like me. So definitely a big learning curve.
