My New Obsession!

So, I am completely obsessed with this new little tool I stumbled across thanks to my sweet friend Allison. It is a free photoshop like download from! It has totally consumed me for the last few days. I have been having so much fun playing with all of the different editing options. I think I may even take up photography!! Just Kidding. But maybe now I will finally put to use my camera Ryan bought me for Christmas three years ago! All I want to do it take pictures so that I can play with all of the fun tools. Here is what I have 'learned' so far. Enjoy! And go to that website, you will become just as addicted as I have. Oh, and stop with the comments about pictures of me, I am not that photogenic, but I will post some soon, just so that you all know I really do exist.

I saturated the color, and then antiqued the photo.
This one is in Sepia, Antiqued, and then color blurred.

Sepia and Antiqued.

I backlit and sharpened the photo, in the original Ashy looks really washed out.

I added the cool bordered and color enhanced Adeline, so the pink really pops.

I 'bloomed' this photo, to soften the edges, and give us a gentle glow.

(Finally a photo of me)

Don't say you aren't photogenic that picture is beautiful!!! I dont think I am going to make the Twilight movie, I have been feeling a little off and have to work the next day so I better get some sleep. Plus I still need to get the book.

Go you! Though pictures look awesome! Thanks for turning me onto this too - I can't wait to take our family Christmas picture and then play around. That's a great picture of you and Adeline (sp?) btw!
