Update - Round 8 picture at post #268 - Page 18

Following on from a couple of posts made in the 'Official 2009 photos thread' I thought we could start a little friendly competition.

I'll post an image straight from the camera and give everyone 4-5 days to edit it however they want, to make it more pleasing. You can use Photoshop, Gimp, Paintshop, anything!

After the time limit i shall pick a winner and that person will pick an image to be edited, and so on and so on.

Rules -

Keep the picture so it doesn't 'break' the forum

You can enter as many times as you like, but only your first submission will count

Try to describe what you did to the image as well, gives people a chance to practice the same techniques.

Most important rule - It's just fun!!

I'll start, picture in next post....

HukD House:

I firstly corrected the colours, and then pumped up the contrast. I then duplicated the layer and replaced the blue of that colour with green, however this messed up the sky so I masked those areas off. I then played around with the contrast and brightness a bit more, before duplicating the layer again and applying a heavy gaussian blur, and again masked off the areas that I wanted to be in focus. The last thing was to add the HukD logo. I used the transform tool to skew and resize it into place, and I set the blending mode to pin light to remove the background of the logo. All in all, it took me about 5mins as its not a very complicated potatoshoop. I'd like to see the graphical artists have a go at this image, to make it look very modern, mysterious etc. (]like this or ]this)

Great competition and great entries already ! Nice one sancho !

Like chesso bit confused about the editing thingy. (Age you see)

Forgot to say how I did it. I don't know really as I'm a bit clueless - just messed about in photoshop for the main pic then to paint to add the images, then back to photoshop for tidying up. It took me absolutely hours!!
There must be a way to cut out images and save them but I don't know how.

Yay dragons me like!

I stand corrected.

I'm sure I'll love Xiwt even more than twix! ;-)

LOL - you spotted the man with the green hair. Did you see the little presents too? Hehe, I'm no good with this sort of thing - but I certainly had fun!

Yeah lol and very neat and tidy spray painted tinsel t'is by far best Paint one...mine was done in paint too but uh oh... I messed up big time!... I just realised I edited the wrong image! (I copied the first edited one by accident and went to work on that!!!) HAAAAAAAAaaaaaa!
