    Been watching some lynda videos recently and learned a lot of new photoshop techniques and a few new ideas for getting creative. I mainly focused on curves, brightening the eyes, and some color adjustments. maybe a few other things here and there. Oh, and I removed a lot of baggy eyes and wrinkles.

    took a few pics today and tried to apply some of them.

    The untouched photos are first and then my edits are the 2nd of each image.

    i like the before better in most of them. your g/f has a cute sister. :kdubb:

    edit - just realized i hadn't recalibrated my monitor after re-installing windows yesterday. the edits look a lot better now, but i still don't care for the first or third one.

    I was curious why you liked the originals better :dunno:

    the first and 3rd are just to experiment a bit, not necessarily what i think is the best way to go, i was just playing around to have some fun.

    i'm usually not one for selective color but I thought it was neat on that image with the cake.

    I would have liked the first after better if the cake was the only thing in color

    I like the befores better for the most part...the afters make my eyes hurt.

    Keep the curves but pull back the brightness a bit in some of those. And crank up the recovery and blacks in the one with the iPhone on the table.

    well, before i recalibrated my monitor, the afters looked like you pushed the levels too much and they looked overexposed. once i calibrated my monitor, they looked MUCH better. :mamoru: personally, i like bright portraits like that, pushed just to the edge of over-exposure. although, i would try pulling back the highlights just a bit, there are almost spots of over-exposure in the specular highlights on their cheeks.

    I just realized I did all these edits with my screen brightness all the way down. :o

    My damn girlfriend turned it down when she was using my computer :rofl:

    So now I know why they may look a little bright. :wtc:

    1. First one is fail. Selective coloring sucks. The rest are good.

    2. Your girlfriend's sister is hotter than your girlfriend.

    3. Shit, this isn't the main forum?

    1. Yeah I agree, I was just playing with it.

    2. Meh, girlfriend isn't looking her best in those pics, but yeah her sister is cute.
