I Have Adobe CS3 and Lightroom 2. I prefer to load my photos through Lightroom, but I could use Bridge. I just would like to know if anyone out there is good at organizing and cataloging their photos, or even just medicore. Do you rate your photos or have any other tips to being a more efficient photographer on the backside.
I sure don't feel like I should be giving a tutorial as I am such a novice. But for what it is worth, I'll give it my best shot. The above photo is SOOC. I'm a huge fan of black and white and have had lots of fun playing with photos in Photo Elements 6. Learning it has at times been extremely frustrating to me and there is a ton about it that I have yet to learn. BUT, it is so rewarding when you finally do figure out a technique.
To get this effect I first cropped the pix. Then, I put it into black and white by clicking on the 'Enhance' tab and then 'Convert to Black and White'. Often I will go back into the Enhance tab, click on 'Adjust Lighting', click on 'Levels' and move the black arrow in 'Input Levels' to the right until I get the desired intensity of black that I want. That feature is way cool and I love using it. Next I did Vignetting. I have had to go back OFTEN to Carin's excellent tutorial on 'Vignetting' which is in the 2008 archives and dated October 6th. I found out you can use all kinds of colors with awesome effects to frame your subject with. Anyway, I'm sure this is all elementary to you, but hopefully helpful to someone who is learning the beginning basics like I am! Have a great week everyone!
I took some pix's of my son's truck and trailer around midnite when he was passing through. I took them at the weigh scale under their lites and got some rather cool pix's. I blew them up to a 5"x7" and was disappointed when they turned out way to dark. Anyone have any helpful hints of what to do with them? I'd love to do some for his birthday.
I love this picture and would like suggestions to make it the best possible... I was busy and quickly took shots when not otherwise involved... (it was a 50thanniv. for my sister.) The kids are so cute and would like to see the picture improved. You can see on the second picture that I tried working with it but it made it look faded and a bit washed out.
