These first three the credits go to my 6yo
Here are some of the SOOCs from the ones Im trying to figure out how to edit for the canvas... Im wanting to end up with something along the lines of this:
would you like for some of us to take a play with these?
I'd be willing to give it a go.
Let us know.
Oh yes. I would love it. Im still working on trying to get good photos so I havent even dived into the editing portion yet but I want to try to get some of these done for the canvas. I want to give it as a gift. My mums birthday isnt until October though so I have a bit of time but considering I have no clue what Im doing I figured Id start early.
OK ... here's my share:
To get the sepia look, I first ran Pioneer Woman's (free) 'sepia' action. Then I ran her 'heartland' action (also free). Then I removed the 'edge fade' layer from the heartland layer group. And changed the opacity in the 'range compression' layer to 10%.
After that I changed the opacity of the layer/layer groups for each action until I got the look I wanted. In both pictures, the sepia layer was around 50%. The heartland layer group was pretty different between pictures. I left it fairly high on the picture on the right - around 70%. But it was much lower - around 30% on the left picture.
My next step was to apply a bit of a texture to each of the sepia photos, just to give it a bit more of that aged look.
On the full color photo, I did a levels layer adjustment and a saturation layer adjustment.
Finally, I dropped it into the story board.
