IF- Forward - Digital Baby Steps


Well, she certainly is leaning forward. I also call this one, " Gone With The Wind." No, just kidding. I like the way this one looks with the type in place. Sorry, can't share that now.  But, I can share the image. Part of an ongoing project.

As my Digital Baby Steps contribution for this one, I'll share a few keyboard commands that are my favorites. Believe me, I am still learning!  So, these are Baby Steps for sure, but very useful. 

Command S - Save
Command Z - Undo
Command Zero - Fit on screen

And, a new one that I just learned from Tracy Bishop:

Command - option Z - multiple undos by going through the history palette.

I just tried this one! Excellent! Thank you Tracy!
Be sure to check out Tracy's portfolio here. Awesome work!

I plan to share more favorite keyboard commands in future posts, as I learn them from friends, so stay tuned if you are learning, as I am!

Love the colors and all of the textures...beautiful.

Can't live without "Command Z"...so much so, that I wish I had a "Command Z" in real life!

This is really interesting and lovely. You've framed it so nicely, and the colors are outstanding. And it seems to be a magical time of day.
