BEFORE, FRONT PORCH PHOTO STUDIO MAGIC
AFTER, WOW, IS THAT A PROFESSIONAL STUDIO SHOT?
Seriously, if I wasn't so lazy, I would use picnik for everything - my photos would look 100% better. Maybe I should try. (ps: this is totally not any kind of paid endorsement - it's just a rad site and if you ARE selling things online as I know a lot of readers do - it's worth it to get your pictures looking as ace as you can.
They have themed things to play with seasonally ( I showed this picture to DrMr and the only thing he could say was "you don't look very happy"... and I said "really? That's the only thing you can say about this picture??????????? I have fangs, not to mention my gaping NECK WOUND") Here I am relaxing with a cup of tea at home.
Or you can be a cheaty-cheater and make yourself look LOVELY AND NATURAL in about 5 minutes flat.
The original was actually taken sans make-up this morning and is so hideous that I am too ashamed to post it. But it is a FAR CRY from the above picture. I was also trying to go for neutral face, not snotty and pissed off.
Meanwhile, my arm is sore from so much clickity-click from the mouse. Enough procrastination, I really have so much to do, so better GET BACK TO IT.
