OK, here's the pic to edit this week. Be sure to post as many of your steps as you can, so we can learn from each other. You are free to do more than one edit, but indicate which ONE edit that you'd like me to include in the poll. Have fun!

My first time taking part in this so I did my steps as well. I hope I did not have to go into great detail, meaning numbers/percentages.



My steps:
Sharpen
Photo Effects - Vivid
Blemish Removal - Bits of nummies on the face
Highlight/Midtone/Shadow adjustment
Histogram stretch
Dodged the eyes
Sharpened the eyes
Fill flash to 20
Adjusted curves
Converted to platinum

Okay, I'll play... even tho editing is totally NOT my thing!

1) Took a sample from his shirt and painted it into a new file as the background.

2) Copied the zebra over and stretched it to the size I wanted.

3) Used the magic selector thingie and took out the area around it with the eraser.

4) Did the same thing with his beautiful head.

5) Drop shadow on both layers.

6) Did the same thing with the giraffe.

7) Copied the giraffe to make a herd.

8) Did some Paint Daub thing to his head to make it match better.

9) Crackle-textured the background.

10) Merged all the other layers and posterized them.

11) Merged layers.

Here's mine.



I did an unsharp mask, then a curves adjustment to lighten a bit. I duplicated the layer, ran another unsharp mask and created a layer mask and selected only the eyes to sharpen them a bit.
