It's Touch-up Tuesday time again! :)
Ducky was playing with his new plastic wheelbarrow, and it got stuck on the edge of the driveway. He was not happy. His face killed me just a little bit! When I put the pictures on my computer I realized how out of focus he was, so I tried to fix that.
In Photoshop Elements, I
~Straightened the image with the "Custom" setting, I put it to the left by 11 degrees, then cropped it.
~I used the cloning tool to fill in the grass and driveway where there was nothing, I think I could have done it better but I was in a rush. ;)
~Using the selection tool I selected just Ducky, sharpened him up by reducing the guassian blur, then inverted the selection and increased the guassian blur on the background.
~I raised the brightness to +2 and the contrast to +8
~I decreased the colour saturation to get some of that orange reflection off of his face
And that's it!
Oh, and I re-sized both images because they would have taken too long to upload otherwise.
Have a picture that needs some fixer-uppering? Well then join in the fun at Karli's! :)
