Fix-It Friday #65 • Photo Editing Fun!

~Copyright Restrictions : permission to edit for blog given by the original photographer (Andrea Riley)..... Oh what a sweet little face.. he reminds me a great deal of my nephew..Is he surprised?... Is he angry?.. Is he sad?.. He looks like he might be pouting just a tiny

little bit in this picture.. I traipsed around from blog

to blog looking at what everyone else did to his photo.. I love them all.... but I found that they were all very similar.. I guess that there is only so much you can do with a basic Photography program.. black and white or sepia and a few focus changes.. I gave him a frame.. some sparkling wishes.. and one tear.. I must confess that I'm new to altering photo's.. I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to that.. Maybe I'll learn something here.. I like to add stuff.. I wanted to add a top hat to him.. or maybe a few hats.. then I remembered that I lost that program when my last computer got sick and died.. and it won't work with this one.. arrrrrrrrrrrgh!..

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great night!

Oh, I've never seen the Friday Fix-it linky. How cool! I'm with you though, I'm not sure what I would have done with that photo. I have PSE, but it takes so much time to learn and I'm still working on that. Not enough hours in the day.

Lin~ I made the rounds and they all looked alike.. this was my first try at the editing and maybe I did it wrong since no one has commented.. He is a cutie though..
