It’s Tuesday, which means I made it through Monday.
I’ve been busily working on photos, though I still don’t have as much time as I would like to.
A few more days, and then I will have some extended time to spend in-world.
After taking my Photoshop class, I’ve been trying to apply what I learned.
I was taking some pics in-world at Slink West (a really beautiful sim!) and trying out the new filters they added to Firestorm with the last update.
I generally take a couple of pics with different windlights, but sometimes I try out the filters just for fun, to see what they do.
I used a filter and really liked the effect; however, I decided I wanted to try and recreate the look myself in Photoshop, rather than just using the FS filter.
When I posted the photo in the LOTD post, Yummy asked if it was a FS filter.
I think I accomplished what I wanted, if that’s what she thought. 🙂
I cropped it, of course.
And I was using the system avatar, so some work with liquify was in order.
Then I played around a bit with various things in Photoshop.
What I ended up with was this:
If I’m showing off an outfit, I want it to show as it would in-world.
Sometimes, though, it’s just fun to play around.
You can do so many different things in Photoshop.
With this photo, I was trying to recreate the filter I liked.
I was happy with the way it turned out, but I rarely think a photo is ‘done.’
It’s not exactly like the photo I got with the FS filter.
That photo looked like this:
It gives me another set of options to play around and have fun with.
The Black Dragon viewer is still a bit faster when it comes to actually taking the high-res photos, but it’s nice to have choices.
