Learning photoshop as a beginner

Learning photoshop as a beginner


Hey, so my friend ask me if I could fix the photo for her…

Sure I will try and do my best!


As you know I use iPhone only, my pictures are all shooting on iPhone and retouch them on iPhone. I don’t even know how to use Photoshop.

I have never thought I would learn Photoshop one day, cause I’m not a photographer,

not even professional.


However, I really love iPhone photography, and done everything on iPhone (shooting&editing)

It’s simple, faster and somehow it looks great.


My friend told me that she wanna print it out and put it on the wall. So I can’t retouch it on the iPhone apps, cause it will reduce the quality for sure.


So I started learning how to use Photoshop, From the basic. As a beginner. 🙂

And it spend me half day to learn from the basic tools , and I started practicing retouch on it.

You have no idea how many times I tried over and over again.


When I first see this picture I don’t even know how to deal with it…

Maybe just cut off the exposure part? Or fill it with the sand…?

Then I did both. But both looks just nothing and boring…if I hand it to my friend,

I think she would just never ask me for a help again and thinking isn’t she good at it? Maybe not…


Haha I’m just kidding, she is my best friend. Of course I’ll do it till I make sure it’s great enough.

Anyway, I started thinking what’s this pic’s problem…

Trust me it’s hard for me to think..come on..my major is global political economic. Not even photography..camera or artist whatever. Hahaha But I’m not GOOD at political and economic as well, I’m sorry.

But you know, when you really want to do something, the whole universe will helps you!


Then I think to myself where is sand where is beach…why not fill it with the beach and a little bit sunset. So I found the pic which I think it would be perfect and fit it!


To fix the sand is the hardest part for me.

Cause I want it to look normal and nature. I tried, I failed , I tried and I failed…but I don’t give up.


So here is the before and after I want to share with you.

I like it, and I’m just proud of myself as a beginner.
