Hmm… I think it was about 2 years ago from yesterday. I went hiking with my neighbor Jim Glassley. One of Jim’s interests is observing wild flowers. Whenever he found a rare wild flower, he stopped and took a note. Then something terrible happened around noon. Somebody just shouted “Bear!” In the next minute, a bear was chasing Jim. I didn’t know what to do at first. But I had an idea. You know? I pulled MacBook out of my backpack. In 3 minutes or less, I designed a big net enough to cover the bear. I just threw the net towards the bear. And I caught him. I can proudly say that Jim is alive today because of my heroic act. If I had not acted quickly and wisely, the bear might have clawed him in the back.
The following tutorial shows easy steps to design a black net big enough to cover a bear, using Adobe Photoshop CS2. The photo image used in this tutorial comes from PD Photo.
