The Cellar Photoshop Thread

I'm trying to keep my Photoshop skills sharp so I started this thread for Cellarites to upload any image you want airbrushed or manipulated in some way. The image should be attached as a JPG and should be large (usually the default size from a digital camera is good) and unblurred. You should also include what you would like to be done to the pic. Anyone who wants to improve their Photoshop skills is more than welcome to join in on the fun.

This could be a great thread! I have recently got back into photoshop....it sounds great, but I am pretty lame in photoshop.. But I want to sharpen my skills up.

I would love to know how to make a black&white picture with one object in color. I love that effect!!

I think the size of attached jpg images is limited to 146.5 kB.

It would be interesting to see before and after images.

I've tried uploading large pix here, but am limited to 146.5 KB.
I've seen others post some 3 or 4 times that size.
Do you have to be a member for a certain amount of time, or make so many posts to load a large pic?

You have to host it somewhere else, like flickr, and link to it here.

OK. I'll bite. What can you do with this image hosted on flickr.com?



I took this picture about ten years ago with a film camera. Had an 8x10 print made. Recently I scanned that 8x10 print on a crappy flatbed scanner. Can you make this into a nice image? Get rid of the flatbed scanner artifacts. Screw around with the brightness contrast, etc. to make it jump out at you a little more?

Unfortunately the sun was a little higher in the sky than I wanted when I took the picture and the lighting is a little flat. But I like the subject and composition.

Edit: I see the flickr image isn't as large as my original. It's big, but mine is bigger. I can e-mail you a 3 or 4 MB file of the original if you like.

Thanks. And if you don't feel like doing this, then no worries.

What can you do to make this pretty? Oh, and there are a few scratches and places where the picture frame abraded the surface. Maybe you can see if you can clean those up too.

Cool! Thanks for doing that. I see you got rid of some scratches and adjusted the foreground, middle area, and distance to make them stand out from eachother. Pretty cool.

I wonder what approach there might be to get rid of the "lines" made by the flatbed scanner. I was wondering if some selective blurring might do it, or if resizing the picture slightly would make them vanish.

Argh - there was a photographer in Leicester that had photos like that in the window.
All of parents with babies. Black & white father with rosy baby - I wasn't sure whether it reminded me more of the Sixth Sense or a burns victim.

Damn it. I just spent an hour on that.....who thinks CS3 is making their files too incredibly large? Is it just me?

yes, but it seems you are concentrating on brightening the foreground, when really it's the background that needs brightening. Not that i know anything about anything arty.

The trees need to come out more.

And there is something wiggy about that blob in the middle.

The sky, the snow n the mountains need more definition.

I dont know anything arty either
