the shot = luck

My favorite advantage of digital cameras is the fact I can can just keep taking shots all day long without having to worry about cost of processing.

Sometimes you just get lucky. This is one out of a set of maybe 25 pictures.

RE: An action perhaps based on the steps Leah posted?
Sure looks possible. I'll take a look.

Thanks to Chiquitita, Al and Leah for their advice.

ReouchPRO "pros" to the rescue -- and to Greg for letting us lend a hand.

Hello,

I love this picture and wanted to see what I could do with it. I am working with PSP 8 beta.

I duplicated layers. On one I used the automatic contrast filter enhancement, and on the one above it, I used curves.

Then I erased the too light area on the curves layer, so that you have the foreground lightened, and the background close to the original contrast.

I also used the Alien Skin Image Doctor JPEG repair and a bit of the soften brush to help clean up the image before saving it.

I liked this so much, that I wanted to play with it a bit more. I also did a bit with histogram on this one. Its colors are a bit brighter.

After duplicating this layer, I used the softness filter, and then used the eraser brush lightly over the face and especially over the eyes, to keep that in focus.

Welcome to RetouchPRO and thanks for trying out PSP8 on this.

A little off topic, but what do you think of PSP8 so far?

It is quite a change, so it takes a little while to find all the tools that you are used to using, but I love it! It has some wonderful new features, and I have found myself using it a lot.

I look forward to when they get the bugs worked out. :-)

Have you tried it yet?

My first attempt at publishing actions, and I have no backlit images but this one to try them on

Let me know if they work on other images.

Shadow Removal

I did this with PS shadows and highlight. Then ran an action that allows futher removal of shadows with a mask. I could e-mail the action if you're interested. Picture attached.
