No, this post is to let all my friends and blogger buddies know about something I can do for you. A
While I love writing, I must now look for something marketable to the masses as it were. These are tough economic times and... well...
So anyway, I have recently found a way of combining my love of art with the computer world in a rather unique and fun way. Have you ever had a photograph that was very good... except for an awful background? Or an unfortunate zit taking up prime real estate? Or a stain? Or drool? Or the 30 years you seem to have put on over night? Or... ?
I think we've all had photos like that. Well, I've discovered that I'm actually rather talented at altering photos. Check out these before and after shots:
My beautiful mother doesn't like the way she looks in pictures... but she has just uploaded the one I did for her (on the right) as her Facebook profile picture.
This is me. Can you tell I took the picture myself? In the bathroom? I'm afraid the dim light was not kind to my 40-some years. It's not the best picture of me, but it served as great practice!
This is one of those rare pictures of myself that I actually rather like... except that you can tell I took it myself while sitting in my car... and you can see a child car seat in the back.
Aside from adding in my own funky background, I also had a little fun and made my green eyes even more green. My husband calls them my "Incredible Hulk" eyes. Rawr!
The neat thing is that with a clear photo, there's not a whole lot I can't do. At this time I can't add other people into a photo - but I can whiten your teeth, put eye liner on you, wipe the drool off your kid, airbrush cellulite (within reason), oh, and...
I can take your already adorable kid and highlight certain features... or even change them. You should know, Iraq actually has dark brown eyes. Heeheehee!
And I can also do artsy stuff.
So here's the deal. Three randomly-selected commenters will get free photo-editing services for any photo of their choice. The only stipulations are that you must own all rights to the photo, and it should be a fairly clear photo.
This would also be the perfect accent to a fundraiser or a blog giveaway!
