In case you don’t remember, here’s the original post I wrote about it. But if you click on this link and read mylatest Detroit News MichMoms post, I really explain what this trip meant to me. Check out and let me know what you think.
So here’s how I took this photo:
And made it look like this:
Crop out as much junk as I could.
I enhanced it by brightening it to 50 and Contrast to 22
I used the Clone Stamp to get the rest of the junk.
I created another layer and lightened it up a lot.
I added a mask so the super light background showed up, but then used the Paintbrush tool to go over Marie to show the original layer with her in it.
Sound complicated? I thought so, until I practiced it and it finally clicked! If I can figure this out, I have total faith that you can, too! Yay! Also, Brandy is a fantastic teacher!
If you have an issue with Photoshop Elements 10 that you want to go over, let me know if the comments!
