Eric,

I think the most common reason people have problems getting pics to upload is because there is a size limit. If you make the size 100K, and upload as a .jpg, there shouldn't be any problem. If you're uploading to the gallery, the limit is 200K. Hope this answers your question.

Ed

Eric, It looks like your file size is under the 100K limit. Are you by any chance previewing your post before submitting it? If so, that is known to delete your attachment. Try submitting without previewing - and if you need to edit your post afterwards, you can do that with the "edit" button at the bottom of your post.

Jeanie

Do you know what you want to change in the image? Did you photograph the shot -- if so, what was your intent? You can make changes - blur the background, change the background, spiff up the paint job on the car, eliminate the glowing light beneath the car, etc. -- but some of those changes might detract from a certain mood that an artist might want to project.

Personally, I'd probably mask the washed out sky and parts of the cityscape behind her, and give it a gaussian blur to reduce the distraction, or crop the image more tightly. But it depends completely on what you want the image to communicate.

Give us some details, and I'm sure you'll get some info on what tools in PShop 7 will help you create the look you're trying to achieve.

This is a nice picture. What will help fix this picture is a levels correction. That's the first thing you need to do. There might be a tutorial on this site for that, but if there isn't you can do a search on google for 'levels correction', as the mechanics are beyond this thread, (even though it's quite simple). It might take you an hour to learn.
Follow that up with adding a layer above all of 50% gray, then change the blend mode of this layer to soft light, which will make the gray layer transparent. Then paint on this layer with the dodge & burn tool, carefully burning around the eyes, etc.
The picture itself is actually is bad shape, but that might be because you had to reduce its size to post it here.
Sharpening this picture really isn't much of an option, as it will bring out more artifact, at least at this size.
Levels correction and dodge & burn is probably what you're looking for here.

How bout this...

I couldn't resist...

Recolored the car, played around with some Gaussian Blur and the Saturation on the background...

Just tried to make a bit more dramtic.

Question I am confused....

Which is really nothing new when I am involved. I really like the expression on this girls face and the possibilities,...where I am confused is in the composition itself. Why is there a bright light eminating from under the front of the car? The way her legs are straddling, it is almost as if something is bursting out from underneath. I guess I don't understand what the light source is suppose to be. Again, I confuse easily, and sometimes am very guilty of missing the trees for the forest.

Thanks for any insight!

Take care,
Nite Owl
