I am so lazy: I haven't installed PSE on my new computer yet, and I need some help. I have tried everything I know how to fix up this photo, but it still needs work. It's kind of blurry, but it's what I got. I'm okay with that, but I don't like the background. I tried to use a vignette on the picnik site, but it isn't giving me the results that I want. you see, this is an important pic- it's the first time that Owen expressed interest in the baby in a positive way, and I want to scrap it, but I want the pic to look it's best. I was hoping for a color one, but I'll take whatever mercy you throw on me!!!!

Here's my effort….I used the clone tool and made the background all blue from the picture color. There was a nasty shadow that showed up and I tried to remove it??? I don't know how it will look.

Here's more texture added….
If this doesn't work and you want me to try another color…let me know. I was just playing, but I'm sure that some of the experts on here can do a nice job for you. That picture is soooo sweet. I like the soft focus. It adds a sweet touch.September 6, 2011 at 1:29 am #135116September 6, 2011 at 2:33 am #135117September 6, 2011 at 5:37 am #135118
Vignettes are also a great option for poor photos:)

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."September 6, 2011 at 4:18 pm #135123
I have the whole layout ready! I just have to print out the pic, mat it, and put on the title and finishing touches. I've been working on it for over a week!! I hope to get to it today after the laundry!September 7, 2011 at 2:41 am #135124
