Photo Edits

Where does time go?

I woke up this morning and had all of these plans, to do this and to do that, in the house. And, of course, it’s a beautiful day out. I don’t mind staying in regardless, but I know I have to get my daughter out of the house. I struggle with this often. I’m a home body. Anyway, I usually get up and jump right on the computer and get a few things done. Well, it’s 1:30PM and I’m still here. I edited a few pictures for my daughter’s school newsletter, I edited some of my own pictures and a princess picture, and paid a few bills. I have yet to clean the dishes from breakfast and have to wash clothes. My head is spinning with so many different things to do, but not knowing where to start.

Figured, I’d come here first and show you my edits and then I’ll hop on the dishes and hopefully get outside at some point here.

The picture below I took on Easter Sunday. I was just playing around with my camera and thought, hmmmm, maybe it would be a cool shot. I tweaked it with GIMP and fotojet and PicLight this morning and came up with this. I wanted it a bit more vibrant, but all in all I like it. Any thoughts? CC welcome.

I’m so behind with edits for Ella’s Enchanted Events so I worked on one photo this morning. I hate that there is an ATM in the background. I’ve tried a few things to remove the eye sore in other photos, but I don’t have the skillset to cut it out and make it look good.

Any suggestions??

Beauty and the Beast

Practicing my photo editing on Princess Belle.

This picture was a jpg. I don’t have the raw image. I tried editing raw images not too long ago for the first time and got scared.  lol.  Yes, scared. GIMP turned into a whole different sort of program. I messed around a bit, but need to get to know how to edit raw images before taking a whole set of images in raw format I think.

What do you think? What’s my best course of action to learn how to edit raw images?

 

Thanks for any feedback you can lend!
