In the Photoshop Elements online class one of the lessons
involved lightening images. Many of the students lightened
up dark images of their quilts, but I chose the images below...
We recently visited our son.
My husband took this picture of us:
You can kind of see my son and I,
but our doggie Gunnr is only a silhouette...
This image probably would have ended up in the trash bin.
This lesson taught us to lighten the image...
...then saturate the color back into it in the correct places.
This is definitely useful for an image of a quilt that needs to
be lightened and have the color corrected.
I took this photo out the back door...
There is a fog bank down below the back yard
because the river runs through the fields.
I like this image, but decided to play with it
to see what I could do with it.
This image has been lightened...
This image has the color saturated.
I took this image of a dandelion seed head years ago:
I knew this image had potential and saved it...
In class I cropped it...
Much better already, more focus on the dandelion
Then I lightened the seed head...
Then, just for FUN....I oversaturated it a bit.
I love the way the seed head sparkles and twinkles now and
I love the lime green grass in the background.
This is an image that could be printed out and quilted.
