I downloaded the latest trial version of Adobe Cs3 and I’m pretty sure I’m going to sell my jewelry or a small child so I can afford to buy a license once my trial expires. (just kidding – I don’t own any jewelry). ;)
Here are some photo edits I’ll share with you.
This is the original photo of my great niece CC taken at my daughter’s wedding last summer.
I’ve rotated the image, zoomed in, cropped it, color enhanced it, blurred the people in the background to create depth of field that did not exist. Cool, ain’t it!
Then, desaturate the color to B&W and sharpen and enhance contrast (added a little “noise” for fun).
I LOVE this software! Okay – here’s another one.
Original photo of my daughter waiting in the bride’s room just before the wedding. She was reading a card my mother gave to her.
Here’s the enhanced version. Created depth of field on the background, desaturated color levels and filter “glow” was added. I think it creates a dreamy look.
If you haven’t tried photoshop, go give a try at http://www.adobe.com. Trial version is free for 30 days.
Now I have to decide how to afford this without breaking any laws. (just kidding……really…….I am……STOP!)
