Why I love Photoshop

I just received photos taken during a wedding dinner from the bride herself. Thanks Kavitha!
The photo was okie but not up to a standard of a professional photographer. Maybe it was prior to editing (hopefully). Whatever the reason is, I look so horrible in it! Then come photoshop to rescue!!


Why I love Photoshop


What a difference!
I may not be a professional photographer or a designer, and what I know is very little compared to many of you. Looking carefully, the yellow colour in the bride's saree turned out to be too bright. But then, something is always better than nothing right?

Now you know why I love Photoshop?

Between, if you have any tips on photo editing, do share them here. I wanna learn too! :)

jokes apart..here r some real tips on photos:

*take close up shots
*crop unwanted shit ard the photo
*AutoCorrect - sometimes they come out better than the original
*If colors dun come out right, u can bring the real colors to the pics by adjusting Color and Brightness.
*U can also sharpen the pixels using various tools

etc etc

hiya. just speaking from my lil experience with photography/photoshop. the original picture is actually a pretty well exposed picture. the edited version is simply too yellow, you can see from the orangy tinge of everyone's skin and the blowout of yellow on the saree. what could be the problem with first pic?

@ keshi

u do take A LOT of pics!! hahahahah.. trusty camera phone comes in handy i guess.

thanks for the tips hun!



@ kimberly

i didn't like the dull expression in the 'before' pic. personally i like something bright. i agree the 'after' picture turned out to be too orangy & yellowish. how do i fix it so tht it is bright, 'dreamy' but at the same time doesn't turn out to be yellowish?

but i like ur shots, always. its difficult to believe u took the shot all by urself! i still remember the magz cover post - the photos fit perfectly in the cover! :)

another common factor in us - we have the tendency to love bright pictures! :P
