Okay some people looking at these two photos might say these are flower photos, not travel. Well, yes and no. I took the shots when I was in Prague (you’ll have to take my word on this), so I think maybe they are traveling flowers. Now I’m just being silly. Whatever they are, I did take the original shot in Prague.
What I want to show you is how a little bit of Photoshop can noticeably change a photo. I recently bought Photoshop Elements 10, which is a huge leap from my Elements 6. Now, I don’t do a huge amount of post processing, usually just cropping and bumping up the color if needed. However, sometimes it is fun to fool around.
The original shot from the camera…NO PROCESSING.
The shot — post processing
I like both versions, but do prefer one over the other. Do you have a preference?
What did I do you ask?
Well, in Photoshop Elements 10 you can do quick/processing editing directly from the organizer, and with the click of a few buttons. The nice thing is, you see the changes immediately, and if you don’t like what you see you can revert your photo back to the original. I edited this shot in under one minute.
Which buttons did I press, you ask? First…Auto Smart Fix; Second…Auto Color; Third…Improved Tonal Range ; Fourth… Auto Contras; Fifth…Enhance Details
For me this a quick, fun way to see what a photo will look like with a bit of post processing.
Do you edit your photos, or publish straight from the camera?
If you are ever in Prague in the spring or summer, don’t miss all the lovely flowers in bloom around the Prague Castle area. The Royal Gardens (free to enter) are particularly nice.
This is my 6th post of my personal challenge “Publish a post every second day in August”.
