Day 89(1 day late): Photoshopped Self-Portraits

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

For yesterday’s post I decided to play around with photoshop! I just took 3 different pictures of myself and edited them. Here’s the original first one.

I took this photo a week or so ago when I was trying to get a good picture of my new glasses. I posted a similar photo on facebook as my profile picture, but I liked this one as well! So, I just took it into photoshop, lowered the saturation a little and cut out my lips (I was wearing my favorite hot pink lipstick, so I thought I’d highlight how bright it was, although in the final pic it’s a little less saturated, believe it or not!). I then unsaturated the background sans lips a lot more where you can just see a hint of the color, and used the water color feature on the background as well as the lips that I had pasted on another layer.

The next picture is another one I took that day.

For this one I cut out my lips again and lowered the saturation, used the glowing edges filter on the background and raised the saturation, and the accented edges filter on my lips.

The final picture is one I took yesterday after I dyed my hair (the first time I’ve done it myself since it’s been red and with a different product), so I could show it to my friend. I fail at taking pictures of myself with my phone, BTW. And I wasn’t wearing any make-up

So for this one, I just used the torn edges filter with the color I wanted selected, then filled in the white. I think it turned out pretty cool!

I heart photoshop!

BTW I should get caught up tomorrow on posts!!
