Shoot and Edit: Winter edit

I liked my SOOC shot I shared earlier in the week.  Knew it needed a bit of editing.  Played with it some, but waited until today to really edit it and follow Ashley's tutorial.  Can I just say, "WOW!"  This is why I have an old version of Photoshop (using CS) and never worried about upgrading - I acknowledge that I've probably never used even 2% of what the program can do.  Since I don't own Adobe Camera Raw, I did a few small tweaks myself in PS (played around with the levels, brightness/contrast, saturation) before jumping into the advanced editing part of her post.  Stumbled a bit in following along, but it was so worth it.  As I said, I liked my photo before ... but now I LOVE it.  (Click on either photo to enlarge.)

  1. WOW is right! It looks incredible now. Did Adobe Camera Raw not come with your version of Photoshop? I got it even with Photoshop Elements. Try going to file, open as, selecting your photo and selecting opening as camera raw file (I think that's right). That's how I would normally access JPG files in ACR. I'm curious.

  5. I love the photo! This might be the challenge for me too. I really only use 2%, maybe less than that. Although today I discovered how to crop a photo to a preset number of pixels.
