      Since there are a group of us here that are working on leaing PSE I just wondered how everyone was doing. I have been hard at work and for now, I'm concentrating on photo improvement. I have alot of pictures from the summer that for assorted reasons are not all that great! Here is a photo where the light source is obviously not coming from the direction to light our face. A flash would have helped here but I didn't take the photo soooooo

      I'm open for any constructive criticism from you pros too!! Anything I could do different or add, let's hear it!!
      So I have started working with layers and was able to improve this picture quite a bit.

      That is Mount McKinley in the background.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          Oh I see I have a flaw on dh's collar. Hmmm, wonder what I did, looks like I may have been tossing the clone tool around!

            awesome job. …I also have been editing, nothing spectacular yet, but I have been changing lots as far as cropping, lighting. and a few other things. It is coming along 🙂

              I just got my computer back yesterday from getting up graded so now I can try. First I gotta figure out how to get the photo on the work table!

              #83772

              Maggi, that is an outstanding job on that photo. It would have been one of those photos you toss because you can't see the subjects face. Are you going to share your technique? I have one photo that I've kept for years, hoping done day I would be able to fix it.

                Definitely was going by the seat of my pants Joyce!! I made a copy layer, captured just the two of us with the Quick Selection Tool and then adjusted the lighting and color of just us. Then I merged the layers and then made some more adjustments to the overall picture. I tried to tone down the red in my face but when I did it screwed everything else up. I think my face was red from windbu. It was really windy that day and kind of cold! And I didn't have any makeup on either, LOL!! Camping ~ makeup, not so much!!

                I think one of the big things to lea in PSE is layers so that is where I am concentrating my efforts right now.

                    I hear yay on the time issue! I start out in the am to scrap, so go to find a photo, spend hours and hours leaing to edit, and maybe start scrapping around 4 pm. It is frustrating but will be worth the time investment later!!

                      My problem is that I have to leave for work at 2:30 and don't get home until 1:am 5 days a week, (unless I'm called in for a 6th), which leaves me 2 days for cleaning and errands with (hopefully) scrapping in between. Right now, I'm waiting for a laundry load to finish…
