Photo Editing Tutorial - with Photoshop

Wanna know how to take this:

and transform it into this?

It is soooo easy. 

I personally use photoshop, but I'm pretty sure any photo editing program will have these options. Click on the pics to view full size.

Step 1 - Curves

Step 2 - Vibrance/Saturation

That's it! Those are the specific settings I used, but play around with the curves and the vibrance and saturation numbers till you end up with something you like. What'd I tell ya? EASY!

im baaa-aaack

Ok, back to blogging!!

I've now finished module 10 of my CCNA book - ACLs. uuuuugggghhh. studying... I like this stuff, but my brain is totally overloaded! Hence the extreme lack of blog posts. And, like anyone reading this, I am dying to get a craft project on here. Buuuuuttt, apparently everything closes down on Easter - who woulda thunk!? Needed fabric softener for laundry so we drove to Target. CLOSED! Drove to HEB. CLOSED! Wanted to go to Home Depot for a craft - finally. Didn't even go to check if it was opened. After Target and HEB, didn't want to waste my time. Ended up at Walgreen's for fabric softener. Yes, Sunday is the only day I can do laundry since a friend so kindly lets us use his washer. OMG I'm itching to craft. I have a broad idea for DeVon's future room and it's starting to really inspire me. I want to show you my color scheme. I don't remember where the pictures are from, so if you know, lemme know so I can give credit.

To start off, DeVon was wearing this one day and that's when I had a huge epiphany:


I was trying to decide what shade of blue and ended on navy. Easy to match and will grow with him through his teenage years.

I was digging through my inspiration files and put this together.


LOOOOVE IT! (In the voice of that one dragon from Dragon Tales) Can't wait to do SOMETHING. I have a couple really quick, easy, cheap projects planned. Was gonna do them this week, but thank you stores for being closed on Easter. (No offense to anyone who thinks I shouldn't have been shopping on Easter)
