I can’t believe how much I am enjoying this photo editing class! Jessica Sprague has such WONDERFUL video tutorials – she makes everything so easy!
Today’s lesson was “clipping”. Apparently we clip a photo so a mask – okay! Basically, it just gives the photo a nice rough edge, or whatever shape your mask is that you clip the photo to! Luckily, she had a wonderful tutorial and a free mask!
I was running out of photos, so after dinner out tonight, I drug the kids across the street and made them walk the plank – okay – it was a dock, but still….they didn’t enjoy it that much! It was a beautiful evening, so bright and sunny! I still need LOTS of practice trying to figure out my camera, but these will do for now!
The sun was SOOO bright, it washed out the sky, so I did a little photoshop touch up to the sky! Not sure if it looks real, but it looks okay! Below is the original photo, and by the time I cropped it, i was left with a white sky and a tiny corner of blue.
Photo 2: I’m laughing at this one!….. I brightened/whitened her teeth up just a bit too much! Oh the things you can do with Photoshop! Man…..I wonder if It could make me look like I lost 100 lbs!
Not that her teeth really needed it….but I thought it would be a good picture to try it on! Whoa! It’s WINDY!
And for my favorite one of the day:
I pulled out an old favorite! I love this picture of my nephew - I used the vintage tinting technique as well as the clipping technique on this picture! Isn’t it so cute!?
Here’s the original:
I have a couple Our Craft Lounge projects to share with you later….
