Re: Granddaughter

Good one , azure. A lot of apps. used for the finished image. Like the possibilities. But one question remains in my mind, how the heck do you keep track of all the apps and steps that you go thru, to be able to enter them here? HUH?

Re: Granddaughter

When joined I read the forum and saw that that was the main reason for posting and that some had gotten away from that procedure and was going to make sure they started back telling what steps were used. So I made a few quick notes as I went along. Or you would be right I probably would not have remembered what I used or in what order I used. I did forget and downloaded the incorrect file the first time. I did try a couple of things that I was not satisfied with and discarded those.

I also wanted to add a little more detail to face and lips as well as soften up the image so I did a little more combining of the original with the one I had said was the final vignette using 'Adobe Photo Shop Elements 4'. I opened both the original and my final pic and copied the upper portion of the original and then used it as a saturation layer with lowered opacity and erased out layer as needed along with my final pic. Also I used the same copy I used in the saturation layer but this time as a normal layer with lowered opacity to bring out some facial detail and smoothed the skin with slight blur and lightened overall image.

In all it gives a different look. Just a matter of preference. So here is the real final ( i believe ).

*****
I am glad I found this site been looking and reading. Very good ideas, info and some beautiful work here. Great going all of you. Wonderful site!!
