Photo Enhancements

This is Scout, my little female orange tabby, who loves to help me sew. (For more photos of Scout during the construction of a "ragged" baby quilt for my niece, click here). I love this photo; however, the original version of the photo was a bit "washed out" (see below):

The original photo is nice . . . but the colors are just a tad washed out, whether from the light coming in the dining room window, or perhaps my camera settings were not perfect. Whatever the reason I was a teensy bit disappointed so I turned to PhotoShop CS3.

I only needed to do a little bit of color correction to add more vibrancy to the colors in Scout's coat and eyes, and in the fabric behind her. Much more true to life. Then, since it was so easy, I decided to make Scout's eyes a little more green by changing the hue just a bit and increasing the saturation. The result is a more striking photo.

I'd love to know what you think! Please leave a comment or email me at

I can do this type of thing for you, too! If you have a very special photo that just needs a little boost, send it to me. I'll call you and we can discuss what kind of improvements I can make. It's amazing what a little color correction, cropping, removal of distracting backgrounds, and "healing" blemishes and wrinkles will do for your pictures.
