Fix-It-Friday No.33 - In The Dark II

original


Edit one (just picnik) - YUK!



Gimp then... Edit Two (much better)

Edit Three (still gimp)



Edit Four - gimp + picnik



Edit Five (gimp+picnik)



Edit Six - just a gimp addon 'action' - old photo

I think what irritiates me most about the Picniked shots is the lack of definition in his hair. I do, however like the rotation in the later edits, and the fact that I managed to get rid of the dark shadows under his eyes. Overall I think I like Edit Three & Five the best - how about you?



No step-by-step this week sorry - I totally lost track of myself, but to begin with I know there were some screen masks to lighten the whole thing, and faded cloning of his face to lessen the over-exposure. And then I know that in gimp I despeckled and I used another add-on that masks and sharpens just the edges. Liked that one!

And now to check out other folks fixes of this tough task over at Fix-it-Friday on I ♥ Faces.


POST-SCRIPT

I was so unhappy with my edits today I decided to come back and have another try this evening - and I am a little happier with the result :D It's a combination of Gimp & Picnik again (that's all I have really), but I think I did something right this time :D It's still not brilliant, but marginally better - maybe?! It's still a bit noisy, but I didn't like it after noiseware, so I left it.

Edit Seven!
