I am back with a new photo editing softwares! I had to cancel my subscription to photoshop because I couldn't afford it. I depended on authors to help cover the cost of Adobe Photoshop which is why I had raised my prices. And since I started working as a sub and that I am still an author, I needed to concentrate more on those two.
Then the China Virus hit the nation and the governor of California to close the schools and keep them close. He put me out of work, giving me more time at home.
During that time, God had blessed me and I slowly gained my interest in designing covers again, but not with Photoshop. I went back first to Corel Paintshop and then Painter 7. I thought why not? Has anyone else used both softwares to make book covers? I would start first with free images until I know someone would want of them. Then I got hooked. I wanted to make more and more.
Knowing that some professional graphic designers turn their noses at using free images of models, I decided to chose my images carefully yet I wanted to try with people so I bought me with a plan at Depositphotos and began using both software.
However, Corel didn't satisfy me. There were blending modes that Photoshop has that Corel doesn't and I was finding that I rather use something else that Adobe has and it's called Adobe Elements. After first I wasn't sure I would like it because it doesn't have a couple of options that Photoshop has, but it will do. It does have a couple editing tabs that I love using so I will stick with it until I can afford to rent. Please take a look at some of my newere covers and tell me what you think!
