Tutorial: Creative Editing by Whimsical-Dreams Tutorial: Creative Editing by Whimsical-Dreams
FULLVIEW OR CLICK DOWNLOAD TO VIEW THE TUTORIAL.

This is a short tutorial on how to get the most out of your photographs, by editing them in Photoshop. However, please note that a lot of my photographs aren't edited, it is personal opinion if you want to edit them or not.
You can be as funky and creative as you like in Photoshop. I use Photoshop CS2 mostly.

In a few of the smaller photographs here in this Tutorial, I have used a soft Glitter from ~Mifti-Stock.

You can find other great resources here in "my favourites".

I find a lot of incredible resources and stock (including textures) here in *DA-Vintage-Club's favourites: "Becoming Vintage".

The last photo in the tutorial is from this series: "Autumn Wonderland".
The rainbow flower at the top can be found here: "Those were the days...."

Keep a look out for more tutorials :aww: Have fun :heart:!

Just remember; Editing photos is a personal choice. Not all photos need to be edited!

Thanks for your post. I will definitely be using these ideas and pondering more and more about what I am really doing right with the use of my YouTube video channel dedicated to some of the concerns you have mentioned. I'm also considering the actual way it would be if I launched a blog discussing a number of the same issues you've dealt with here. Thank you for showing me something so obvious. I used to be blinded from it. Your post has really made an impact on the way I think about my own work and ideas too. click here to know more about clipping path.

Just a question, is the flare natural? or the small circles natural or also edited?

I can't even remember it was soo long ago, but I think the bokeh was edited- the flare was natural :nod: I aimed with the sun behind the flowers to get that effect (it was just with my tiny digital camera at the time), anyone can do it and also create the bokeh effect!

That rainbow effect looks so cool! I'll be sure to give it a try!

A question though, when submitting a piece edited to that extent, would you submit to Photography > Darkroom Digital or just use a "regular" photography category? I know it's still a photograph, and everyone post processes to some extent, but I never quite know where the line is for that Darkroom category.
