TMIP Forums upgraded to Version 2.0
I just recently upgraded The Magic in Pixels Disney Photo Forums to Simple Machines Forum version 2.0/RC1 and all in all it went pretty smoothly. A few oopsies by me due to lack of sleep crashed the site completely, but thanks to making numerous backups and some quick assistance from my hosting company, catastrophe was averted.

The forums have a slick new look and some new functionality, not to mention a major new feature coming very soon, just for members of the TMIP Forum. More and more addons and upgrades are coming all the time, so if you are not a member of the TMIP community, you should come on over and register for the forums right away.

Thanks to all of my loyal participants for being patient through the upgrade process; I can promise you that the forum will remain a work in progress and be subject to constant upgrades new features to keep it fresh and growing at the breakneck pace that it has been.

As always, feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Getting Colors to POP! (Method #2)


I recently posted a new article about getting your colors to POP! in Photoshop CLICK HERE when a question was asked in the forum if this was the way I popped the colors in the Sorcerer Mickey hat in the forum. When I alluded to the fact that there is more than one way to skin a cat, I was asked to post the second technique of making colors POP! Well, HERE YOU GO! (click).

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Tom Sawyer Island is a hidden yet very exciting portion of the Magic Kingdom where you can get some great views of local attractions. Here is Big Thunder Mountain at Walt Disney World as seen from the edge of TSI. I really love the beautiful colors in the rocks and the sky. A very peaceful and scenic image.
