I heart Friday’s because over at i heart faces they challenge us readers to take a photograph submitted by a reader and put our photo editing skills to work. This weeks photo comes from Lindsay and is titled, “Little Miss”. Here is the original.
As for editing, I agree with others that the background is a little distracting. So I decided to try my mouse pen at some selective coloring in Photoshop Elements 7. Once I had the digital photograph open in my editor, I created a background copy layer. I converted this layer to black and white, leaving the original layer in color. Grabbed my mouse pen and outlined this adorable looking “Little Miss”. Then I deleted her. Yep got rid of the black and white image of her so that the color version could shine right through that black and white layer. I then added a matted frame over the picture to further bring out the color in her sundress. And here you have my final edit.
