With this one, you need to enhance your photo. I"ve got some tuts here:

If your program isn't there tell me and I can look for a tut or you can go to the adobe website and download a trial version of photoshop and use that. You get one point for posting your before and after photos and one point for scrapping the pic[s]. And the points are the same for 1st, 2nd and third place.

I can never find tuts for my program (PhotoImpact) so I just usually mess around with the color and brightness. Here's my attempt with a pic from Nathaniel's first Christmas. This is one of my all time favorite pics, and I haven't even scrapped it yet!

Now I'll go scrap it!

Kat, what program do you use and what did you do to get those eyes so bright?

I've got photoshop cs3e. If you take the magnetic lasso and select the eyes and then copy them, you can lighten them with edit>curves and then take the unsharpen mask to it.

I have CS4. What I do is select the eyes and use the quick mask to get JUST the eyes selected. Then I copy them into a new layer. I use color balance, as well as brightness/contrast. Then I usually sharpen them.
