Photoshopping Your Online Photos.



This photo was taken of me at the Super Bowl party a little over a week ago. As you can see, much like the Panther's kicker, my head was not at the top of its game. To make matters worse, I was allergic to something in the house and sneezed all afternoon 'til my eyes were watery and puffy. Thank God for Photoshop.

First things first, I used the brush tool to remove my glasses and bed head, thereby reducing the nerd factor and boosting my manly beauty. Unfortunately, this failed to achieve its objective. Fortunately I've still got more steps to go.

I brightened my face, increased the contrast, and then used a blur tool. What that did was hide most of the features of my face. It also made my nose look smaller and my eyes bigger. These two techniques were huge with photostickers and FOB studio pics. But my head is still too shiny.

I reduced the saturation a bit to tone down the pink ribbon. I then adjusted the color to make myself a little less pale. Then I used the paintbrush tools again to eliminate the shiny complexion. Done. Above is what I look like after a few simple steps in Photoshop.

Sorry, couldn't be helped. The Benadryl is hitting me really hard right now.
