Before and After... Sort of.

The before photo is actually after I had edited in ACR. The after photo has only been edited using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer in pse8.

Guest Bloggers Needed!

I know I am going to be busy during the week leading up to my wedding, not mention that I'll be gone for a week during my honeymoon. Thus, I am looking for guest bloggers for my main blog -Artistically Amy- for the weeks of August 15th and August 29. Please let me know if you are interested!


Vintage Edit

I needed to practice the mouseover effect again because I am fiddling with sizing. Also, Amanda over at Everyday Elements posted a tutorial for a vintage edit and offered to let us practice on a photo of her daughter.

So, the image above is my final edit, and you can see the SOOC if you hover over the image. Additionally, below, you can see the comparison of the SOOC shot with my clean edit, the vintage edit using Amanda's technique (adjusted layer opacities to my liking), and my final edit using a texture from Isabelle Lafrance.
