Sunday Spur for Scrapbookers #15 - Enhancing Photos w/ Filters

In honor of National Photo Month, your challenge this week is to with your photos that is. In Thursday's post, I gave a list of online resources for taking better pics as well as ways to enhance them. For an example, here's a photo of my daughter I took back in February: are six variations of the same photo that I created Photoshop Elements 4 using four filters included with the software (there are dozens more to choose from) and two additional filters that I uploaded into Photoshop from optikVerve:

Graphic Pen (left) -- Saturation Reduction (right)

Diffuse Glow (left) -- Film Grain (right)

OV Fall Colors (left) -- OV Rosy Look (right)

Don't have Photoshop Elements? No problem! Most of these effects, or at least something quite similar can be achieved with Picasa - Google's FREE image editing software!

Have fun with your photos!! Be careful...this kind of play is certainly addictive!
