A few of my friends over at Flickr asked me how I edited a photo that I posted today. I couldn't find the original...but as I was delving thru my files I found this photo, so I used the same process. Make a duplicate of the original photo, and use the glassian blur on this layer. Adjust the blur, opacity and colour. If you use a slight blur it will give you a glow but stay sharp. If you're using PSE you can use the eraser tool as I did on the tips of the photo on Flickr. I could've used this for the hosta in this photo but I was editing in Microsoft Picture it, which is quicker but doesn't have that tool.
To see more before and after editing stop by Pixel Perfect.
I must apologize for not returning visits all week, it's been raining and I can't get a connection, so I'll have to stop by tonight and catch up! I'm also looking for a new camera...I'm using an olympus p&s but hubby mentioned he would be me and slr...he bribed me, but I'm ok with that lol. So can anyone recommend a decent enough low end Canon or Nikon they like. I do a lot of macro & shoot mostly outdoors.
