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 on.....so this old pic (which isn't great, but alright) came out of the old pic files. Anyways, pretty neat stuff!
