A-Father's Day 019

Changes applied:
Selective color: adjust blue to brighten up the dress
Curves: played with the custom settings until I got the result I wanted
Brightness/Contract: adjusted brightness to lighten it up
Hue/Saturation: adjusted the hue to give Peanut a little more pink in the cheeks

Do you edit your photos?

What do you use?

    I end up doctoring so many of my pictures with Picnik. Sometimes I can even get dark pictures to look so much better.

  2. Great changes in the photo! I just use microsoft picture manager – which is the one that came with our computer! Works for the basic stuff I do!

    Just stopped by from a blog hop. I’m following you now and hope you’ll stop by my blog sometime too! Have a lovely week.

  3. I love using PW's Photoshop actions that she has for free download…so easy to give a picture a special pop! :)

    I would say that 95% of the pictures on my blog are SOOC. I don't have time to edit them. Plus I take a lot of landscape photos and I really don't want to play with them since I go for the natural look. However, when I do a photo shoot with people I do adjust the white balance and some editing. I use photoshop, but I really like photoscape which is a free download. And I think it is so much easier than photoshop to work with.

    I wish I had more time to play around and edit my photos. Why do we have to work!?

  6. Photos I put on Facebook don't, but they all get edited before they go on the wall. I use photoshop for big changes and iPhoto for small things.

    Great job! When I can remember to edit my photos, I usually use one of PW's 2 action sets. I've gathered a few more from around the web, but I love her "boost" most of all, I believe.

    Squee! She is a princess. I don't have any editing tips as of yet, since I'm new to photography, but I just wanted to say how cute Peanut is!

  10. Super cute, I can't (despite being very computer literate) get my head around photoshop so I use the Microsoft programs that come with the computer, but its better than nothing!

    Love the dress too, we need something like that for a wedding in a few weeks (Chicken, not me, I don't suit bows)

    UGH! I would LOVE to have time to edit photos. When I play around with it I really really really like it…but I just have no idea what I'm doing so it takes me forever and a day. But, one day…one day I will edit =)
