Re: I did it i did it I did a good Pageant photo

I didn't mean anyone, I just want everyone to share what they think, so I can use it to help me. even if I don't like, it could still help me. and thats why I shared it.

yes I read that forum I keep going back to refreash or try something out. I was searching pageant tut's thats how I found this group. I share it with everyone. all the info you need is here. plus all the help you can get.

Re: I did it i did it I did a good Pageant photo

Ailey, to my way of thinking, she looks as if she has been crying, her eyes are still red and shiny and so is her nose. Personally I'd unredden the surround of the eyes and the redness of the nose, shine on the cheeks too, could be wrong on the eyes, but look like crying eyes to me

Re: I did it i did it I did a good Pageant photo

I don't know diddly about pageant photos. So I won't throw aspersions about it. It is what it is.

I thought the chin even though altered looked fine just different than the original little girl.

The eyes are what bother me the most. Seems like you could shrink the iris part of the eyes just a bit and it would look more natural.

The original little girl does not look to be very old and does not seem yet to have a full head of hair. That's why the wig looks so unnatural to me. Maybe a different wig?

The remake person looks to be several years older, not a baby or very young little girl.

I'm glad you posted this. It has generated lots of comments. I have learned about pageant photo "retouching". Thanks.

So I'm un sure of what to do to make it better. should I just re size it to make it smaller. or what.

about that hair.

the hair looks unsharp.
either
1: you smudgepainted it
2: cut and pasted it from a lower resolution picture.

fix it with a higher resolution picture of make a hair brush and smudge in more detail.

about the eyes....... take a look at this website's tutorial

No thats not the point. There is a way to do pageant retouching. They are supposed to be PERFECT but still somewhat realistic. I can show samples if you like of what it should be like. I have been a professional pageant retoucher for 3.5 years.
