I Heart Faces: Fix-it Friday

I have recently just started to follow this photography blog called 'I Heart Faces'. I'm not much of a photographer, but I do enjoy taking pictures and editing them. Maybe... just maybe, I will start a business when I'm older. Anyways, every friday they have a thing called 'Fix-it Friday' where they give you a low-quality picture and you have the chance to edit the picture to make it look better. So I decided to participate in this weeks 'Fix-it Friday'. It's not a contest or anything... just for fun!

Here is the photo that I attempted to edit:

{you can go to their blog to see the original picture}
Unfortunately, I don't have a photo editing progrom like photoshop or anything so I used Picnik.com (Lame... I know!)

What do you think? Any tips?

hi kaylee, that's a really nice effort for not having photoshop!

Shelle said...

very nice, i don't have any decent software either. have you tried paint.net? it's a free download. there's also gimp, and i believe you can use the photoshop trial for 3 months if you want to start to learn it.

I don't have any decent software either. I ended up using iPhoto to lighten the image, and then I pushed it over to my iPhone and edited with CameraBag.

Shelle is right--Gimp is the closest Photoshop freeware available. You should check it out!

Gimp is great. That is what I use and you can get photoshop like effects. Check out my edits with Gimp: www.thenotsowickedstepmother.blogspot.com

I liked the second edit the best. It has a pastel feel to it, and is very soft.

Check out my edits :o)
