A tutorial on image editing with Photoshop

Tonight I found a pretty cool Photoshop Tutorial and used it to edit one of my favorite photos of the J.R. Bean Saloon on Thames Street in Bristol, RI. I’ve never actually been inside the place, but every time I’m in town I find myself taking shots of that wall. The one on the left is my original. The one on the right is my modified version. Click either one for more detail.

  1. Randomly found you through Mikey at HeyFreak. This is the first post of yours I’ve ever read/seen and it was nice to see a little slice of home (I’m originally from RI – Beans is one of our local hangouts whenever my friends and I are home for a weekend). Thanks!

  2. Well, Dave, the next time you come back East, let me know and we’ll hit it up together. It’s not a bad little bar, with occasional live music on the first floor and pool tables, air hockey and second bar on the second floor.

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
