Can become a really nice picture like this?
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Open the picture you would like to enhance.
Step 2: Go to Image>Mode>Lab Color.
Step 3: Go to Image>Apply Image...Don't panic - it might look really funky in the beginning. You have two controls in this dialog box. One is Channel and one is Blending.
Step 4: Try the lab channel, the a channel and the b channel. With each one adjust the blending modes. You will most likely like the Overlay and Soft Light blending modes.
Step 5: Go to Image>Mode>RGB Color.
Step 6: Choose File>Save As...and give it a name.
Here are a couple of other choices just for fun:
This is the same photo using lab channel and Hard Mix Blending mode
This is the same photo using the b channel and Linear Light Blending mode
Do try this and let me know what you think.
Meanwhile it is also Blind Contour Friday. I think I am actually getting better at this. This is a bald eagle head and upper body. It isn't much, but I think you can tell what it is supposed to be. I did the whole thing including the eye without looking.
I've traded the Copic markers and have sold the Spellbinder Wizard. I still have the Zutter Bind-It-All and accessories for sale/trade.
Hope you enjoyed this post.
