Photoshop Fun...

Hmmm. I thought these should have showed up bigger than this. Phooey. Anyways, so maybe I'll hit post and then see if they get bigger when you click on them. If you can't read the text on the pictures, sorry. I tried...and I don't feel like going back and doing it all over. (Edited to add: the second set of edits will enlarge if you click it...don't know why the first one won't....oh well)

So anyways, for what it's worth. In talking to my friend, Casey, regarding what I do in photoshop, and after salivating over the cool before and after stuff on Pioneer Woman's website, I decided to play with a few myself. So here's one of Vi that I don't think made my cut on my editing choices....although it is still a good pic.... So I pulled it out and did the routine on it. This is the average amount of changes I do to any of the portraits I edit....most of the time a few small tweaks can make all the difference in the world.
Course, my life got 10 times simpler using Pioneer Woman's action set that she offers for free. It has most of the little tweaks that I did before plus a few new ones, but I can just hit play and it does them without me having to manually do them. It's great.

So then I decided to find something besides portraits to play with edits and actions this old pic (which isn't great, but alright) came out of the old pic files. Anyways, pretty neat stuff!

And just for the fun of it, here's a before and after of one of the edits I did yesterday. Not a huge difference, but it does make a difference. *grin*


  1. I have no idea what your are saying when you talk photo shop stuff, so I guess it's good that I keep supplying the subjects and depend upon you for the rest! You are so talented!
    I Love You!

  2. You've done a WONDERFUL job with Levi's pictures!!! They'are awesome and he is (of course) so handsome and cute! :o)

  3. Maybe one day I can actually do something like that. Until then, I'll have to depend on you for my creativity. This is definitely your cup of tea!

  4. Okay, now I feel a little better *grin*. It really does make a difference. One of these days when I'm rich and have more memory on my laptop, I'm going to have to get a hold of photo shop and play with it. I LOVE the affects you put on your pictures. Matt (the juvenile hacker) tells me he can get it for free, but.....nuff said, huh? *grin* Anyways, Love ya!!


Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
