Ad Retouch

Can anyone make this photo look like an ad? It could be anything, like a maganize ad, a dye ad..anything of that sort. Just want to play around =]http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=68h1w0h

Re: Ad Retouch

I forgot to add, I don't need colors changed or anything altered. Just some writing on it to make it look like a mak-up or hair ad. =]

Thanks, that's pretty! Although, I don't want the face, skin, or anything on the girl changed at all. I just wanted writing, haha.

That photo is not suitable to having text superimposed over it, as DCobb's contribution neatly demonstrates.

FYI: ads are conceived, designed, and approved first, and 'executed' (photographed a.o.) second. Not the other way around.

I don't believe the original poster made any claim about the suitability of the picture for ad purposes. I took it they were just curious as to what it would look like. I agree that the picture, unretouched, would not be a photo of choice. The picture was used in an ad format to meet the poster's request. The end use of the result, I have no idea.

Re: Ad Retouch

Yeah, it wouldn't be a photo of choice because there's no writing on it. I needed it for my friend's myspace, that's all. Everyone is editing their pictures in a cool way so I wanted to help her out. She's already model-like but I just wanted the pic to reflect that. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

Re: Ad Retouch

Personally, I don't find the original photo very flattering because she looks flat and pasty. There is no "life" in the picture. It needs to be saturated and contrast added. I think Emilylt87's version is more flattering. (Unless your friend intends to present herself in the almost "Goth" style to the My Space world.)
