Fix-It-Friday #5


I love Fix-It-Friday over at i heart faces!! Playing with Photoshop CS4 has become my new favorite thing. Yes, I am still playing with my free 30-day trial of CS4…and now you are asking “How?” since it was only last week that I was saying I only had three days left. Well, I’m cheating. It told me on my last day that I would not be able to open this program after this time without buying it. So, I just haven’t closed it. So if you think about it, it is not technically cheating, it’s just being resourceful : )

Friday's a busy day, isn't it?!
That little trick IS being pretty resourceful! I'd never thought of that!!

I LOVE your edit. It's my favorite so far of all I've seen! His eyes are so crisp and sharp and the lighting ad coloring are perfect.

Melinda! This is PERFECT!!!
On any given photo, all I ever desire is to get a good, clean color image. And this is what you did. Nice!

I am laughing my head off that you thought of that trick ~ that is so awesome! :)

This edit looks like a professional did it...you are getting really good with CS4. I think you're going to have to give in a buy it. (hee!)

If you're that good with it you must buy it :) You get a 70% reduction if you have a child in school - I haven't paid full price for anything Adobe since my 13 year old turned 5 - with the little one we qualify for education software til 2027!

Wow. That is a stark difference. Might be worth the purchase.

This is a pretty, perfect edit. The funky stuff is fun, but this is wonderfully natural.
