In the last post we talked about using an old version of Jassc Paint Shop Pro 8 to edit photos. I wanted to learn how to do this because I love learning new things about editing. Now of course taking a great photo or video should be done so well that you don’t have to edit them, but I just wanted to learn something new and show you my progress.
The top two things I wanted to learn is how to air brushing/smoothing lines and how to fill in gaps.
In this picture I wanted it to be a little brighter, (it was taken on a cloudy day) remove the light poles, and smooth out her shirt. (You can’t see it but she is wearing a tutu under the shirt and it looks like her sides are bulging out.) This photo was taken with a Samsung camera phone.
I ended up air brushing her face and hair too because the picture seemed a little rough in this area. The removal of the light poles was very easy since it could be covered up with the same background as the sky. Smoothing out the lines on her shirt was harder then I thought and I gave up after an hour of trying to fix it.
