If you post an example of the look you are trying to achieve I am sure you'll find a number of people here who would gladly point you in the right direction.

Re: need help

Geminigemini, welcome to RetouchPRO

What retouching software do you have? This will help focus the tips to the programs you have available to work with.

Please don't use external links as the only source for images, externally linked images should only be made available as a backup for attached images. External links change, some sites purge old accounts or have time limits for storage, (TinyPic has an image size limit of only 1600 pixels (either width or height). Also, images that are not associated with an account are removed after 90 days.) which makes an otherwise useful thread here pretty useless. By attaching the image to the post it will be viewable forever.

A much larger picture to evaluate and work on would help a lot!

The following links may help!
Attaching Files or Images to Threads or Posts
Size and quality for Attached Images!

After you post your less than 100K version here, you could also post a link to the site that is hosting a larger version Use one of your own or any of these other host options:
ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO)-- .Flickr.com (5Meg max free.. BUT they resize to 1024 long side if you don't pay)
