Did you see us present "White Reveals, Black Conceals" at NECCC?
If so please leave a comment (please include the program that you saw: Friday at 2:30 pm in Th 102, Saturday at 10am in CC Auditorium or Saturday at 2:00 pm in Th 102. email us your comments and feedback on our program and we will send you a free action that will enable you to "Paint in your photos".This technique reminded me of when I was a kid where you would color using red, gree, blue, etc. crayons and then cover everything with the BLACK crayon and then take a paper clip and remove the black from certain areas to uncover what was underneath and make a colorful picture as the end result. Except it is easier and quicker (I make an action that has one Black layer and one white layer so I can choose which to paint in from) with photoshop.
