EditMe wk8

EditMe Wk8

This weeks image to edit is courtesy of Bree from 'His honey and her mommy'.


Gorgeous ain't it! Such an angelic looking little girl.

Here's my edit:


  • Opened in CS5.
  • Cropped the image slightly. 
  • Then I erm used various 'Coffeeshop' actions (as much as I would like to tell you exactly what I did I can't because I just kept playing with actions, deleting them and then fiddling over and over until I got what I wanted - makes a change huh!)
  • Once I'd done all that I decided this little girl needed to be looking at something because she does look as though something has caughter her eye! Now, I ain't the best Photoshopper in the world and instead of doing what most 'normal' people would do and incorporating a photo of a butterfly I stamped a butterfly!!!! Bizarre huh! Yes I know it looks ridiculously unrealistic and compared to the lovely fairy wings that Squishydoo photography added to her amazing edit it does look a tad........ok alot fake? out of place? but I like it anyway!
Thank you to Bree for submitting the photo and for judging this week.
Thank you also to Branson for hosting this fabulous EditMe challenge.
And Thank you also to all you guys for reading (or at least staying) this far. If you want to edit the image yourself then head on over to the EditMe website and have at it!

I like the spot of color with the butterfly, and that it gives her something to look at. It's not so unrealistic but fairy storybook-like!

Hi Linda - thank you for always reaching out to me on my edits. I truly appreciate your support. Your edits are always great to look at. I am a sucker for butterflies so I like that you added it. :)

I like your butterfly! What a cute idea:) And thanks for your sweet comment on mine. You asked how I made the wings look real. I found an image of wings on the internet, then cut them out and made them a bit transparent. Then I altered the color so that they matched the scene. Thanks again!
