Fix-It Friday #66- Cute Boy 2!


A few quick edits in Picnik ~ more later from Gimp...

Picnik 1

  • Crop and rotate ~ I really wanted to tilt him more upward, but didn't want to chop off the top of his head. I might have a go with stretch canvas later in gimp!
  • Warm and increase saturation slightly, increase contrast slightly, unsharp quite a lot
  • Use eye bright lightly, use sunless tan lightly on skin

Picnik 2

  • used faded daguerreotype curve adjustment, with increased contrast (s curve)
  • faded to 70 % and colour override at 95%
  • Cloned out the grey area on the right, as it was quite distracting.


Picnik 3

same as P2 just added a mirror frame with decreased polish.
 (I love the easy framing effects in Picnik)

Picnik 4

  • From P2 added cross process (faded to about 50%) and vibrance effect (also faded out)
  • for framing I used 'curved corner' + border with rounded corner radius  (colour selected from his T-short) + curved corner again (remember to select 'transparent corners').

To join in with Fix-It-Friday head on over to iheartfaces and have some fun!!

Gimp Edit

I think these are my favourite edits of all, but it was also the most work!!
It shows me what I can do in Gimp though, with a little bit of patience, no actions and a fair amount of perseverance!
It really helps when I have the PC to work on rather than the laptop though as the colours are SO much better!

Of these, I like the second edit the best. :)

Dropping by from I Heart Faces FIF post.

All your different "fixes" are so good! I've never used picnik before so this is all new to me. My favorite one is the last one. It's so vibrant and I really like the border on it too!
