Touch Up Tuesday: Silly Hannah


The photo above is my original shot or SOOC if you will. Hannah was being silly and giggling about her belly button. I then downloaded the photo and edited it using two different programs. What I ask of you is if you have any suggestions for this photo or if you have a favorite. The photo gallery just had updates so I am relearning where everything is on that, but that is what I am most used to using. The GIMP 2 editing system is pretty easy to use and I do recommend it (remember I'm not a photographer), but I don't know what everything does yet. I have a lot to learn. Please let me know what you think! Thank you everyone!

Using My Photo Gallery Editor
I took the shadows out, warmed it up, used the highlights, brightened it and just a little contrast.

Using GIMP 2 Editing
 I played with the colors, brightened and contrasted as well as sharpened the eyes and adjusted the curves.

Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama


  1. I really love your first edit - really makes her pop.

  2. Hi Nicole! I'm loving your first edit the best. It has warmer tones, and I prefer my pictures a little warmer like that too. Also, it seems like the couch fades into the background more in the first one. But if I would have only seen the 2nd edit, I would have loved that too! What a gorgeous face..you can't go wrong! :-)

  3. Thank you for your opinions ladies. I was trying to get a clean, but soft look with this photo. I don't think that is for me. I don't think I can get what I want out of that. I really do like a warmer photo with a deep contrast. I might work on this one again. Thanks again!

  4. The first edit is just the right touch to showcase the photo. And such a cute subject.
