The first thing we will cover is photo editing. Photo editing is, in the opinion of many advanced makers, the most important part of siggy making. You can create a wonderful layout for your siggy, but, if the photo looks bad or drab it'll affect the whole look of the siggy. So, you can see why this is the first thing we'd like you to learn.
Now, the number one thing I have to tell you about photo editing isn't in the actual editing, but in the resizing the photo for the siggy:
Please, please, please make sure if you make the photo smaller or bigger that you make sure it is even so that it does not end up looking smooshed. Simple way is hold down the shift button as you drag the corners to make bigger or smaller.
Here are a few links to help you learn photo editing basics:

PSP: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f5...ncing-psp.html (Photo Enhancing in PSP)

Any other links, be they on JM or an outside source, you might know of feel free to use or share.
I want you to use at least two photos, so you can try to edit them to match each other, in brightness and color and clarity and so on. No black and white photos please.
Please have your entries in by no later than 9 am CST on Monday September 27.

This is my first go at editing. CC welcome, but please be very basic/simple with the terms - I'm still figuring out the basics.

Thanks. Oh, I used your pics from the lounge, Trish, hope that's ok.

I'm confused. So you want us to take two pics, edit one and then make a siggy from it, and post both? One edited and one unedited? Does that mean four siggies total? Or two siggies with both edited and unedited in them?

I'm not Trish, but I'm certain you need to edit 2 or more pics and use those edited pics in a siggy.

You can post the originals here. And then the siggy, so we can see the editing.

Sorry I went missing this afternoon... its been one of my bad days.

Sharon had it right you use two pictures. Post the unedited and edited here. Once you put the siggy together post it here and then post it in the lounge for CC. Once you're done with edits from the CC come back and post your finished siggy here too.

I think I know what you want now:
Here are two pics edited and unedited, and then I will do a siggie with one of them?

I think you're supposed to post it in the lounge first for cc, then bring the finished one here-nice work!
