VC Challenge #6 - Digital, color changes

This challenge is aimed mostly at the digital ladies, but paper scrappers could do this as well.

The challenge is a color challenge. Your challenge is to change the colors of your picture(s). You can change them to sepia, black and white, highlight just one color, change the color shades or more. Try to do something new. If you use sepia periodically, try something different. Have fun!

Challenge prize will be a $5 online gift certificate to 2peas! Smile

For paper scrappers, if you don't have an editing program... upload them to photobucket and edit them in there. You can do a lot of neat color changes.

I like the challenge behind this. Makes me want to make a scrapbook page even though I'm not a scrapper.

I never do black and white ... unless all of the pictures are b&w, and then that's only paper scrapping. So this was a first for me. Wink I've had this layout in my pile to do for a couple of months. Here's the sad thing, Andrew hasn't written Max back since getting the letter from him. Says he doesn't want to do the penpal thing. Need to figure out how to get him excited again.

The trees along the bottom were actually part of the paper. It was from a fall theme paper pack from the dollar section at Target.

Melissa - how did you do that, just reduce the saturation?

Yup, that's basically what I did. I use IPhoto on my Mac and there are 'effects' buttons that you can pick. I used the 'fade color' one, which automatically lesses the saturation.
The effects that I can chose from are:
B&W, Sepia, Antique, Fade color, Boost color, Matte, Vignette, and Edge Blur. It makes changing a picture really easy!

Great ladies. Here was mine, just for fun, but I actually entered it in the scraplift instead.

Oh, that is so pretty. I love the buttons in the flowers. The colors are wonderful too. How about a bow on it?
