What you ladies will do is make a siggy with at least 2 photos, all of which will need some/many forms of enhancement. Your original photos must be posted here first for approval, preferably before Wednesday. I say this so that you have plenty of time to get CC (constructive criticism) on the siggy and get help on enhancing the photos. What you need to work on, before putting the siggy together, is trying to make the photos better. Also, the sooner you get your photos in, the sooner you can find out if you can properly enhance them, or if you should pick new photos. Here is a link, for each program on a few basic tricks to photo enhancing:
Photo Enhancing in Photo Shop
Photo Enhancing in Photo Shop Elements
Photo Enhancing in GIMP
http://www.justmommies.com/boards/index.ph...owtopic=1000428
Do not just use these links and think you are done! What you need to do after you have done the things in those tutorials is post both the original and your first edit in the Makers Lounge. Make sure you list what program you use and the theme of the challenge which is Photo Enhancement. You should get plenty of CC from other makers, and I encourage you to also help each other. Once you're happy with the photos then begin the siggy which you can also get CC on. Please have your entries in by Monday morning by 8 am central time (US), I will post the poll sometime around then and get the new challenge up that afternoon.
Good luck ladies!

i know it is. I copied it directly from that one because we have so many new people and so many wanted to do photo editing. You can sit this one out unless you want to participate.

I was wondering the same thing -- I hope not because I learn so much from SSSC!

No, anyone in any level can participate. These are to help you improve, not to classify how advanced you are.

both are good. on your first I would work on sharpness, color, contrast, and lighting. on the 2nd sharpness (without over sharpening your face) color on your son's face, and lighting.

Hi.. I have been MIA in the siggie world I think becuase I was getting discouraged with my results when trying to make siggies. I think this challenge will help me get back on track and so I am making a commitment to doing the SSSCs and getting better! I will go through my photos and see what I can find

Okay - so if we participate in this (sorry, I am new to this!), you want us to post the original pictures here, or both originals AND enhanced? And can this include any enhancements (image sharpening, partial black/white with color, etc) or just the sharpening?

Wait, I may have gotten some clarity. We post the originals here, then edit and post in the lounge?

Yeah, you got it. So post the two pics you want to use here. Then post the original and enhanced in the lounge. Get cc (constructive critism) then when thats finished start your siggy and finish and post in the lounge for cc on that.

Okay - I always edit my photos, so I have one that is already edited and one that isn't edited yet. And who knows, maybe I still need to work on the edited one!
