Default Help Please!!

I got married on 09/18/04 and just recently found my wedding photos again (got to love moving!). Anyway, I am not good with PSP yet, still learning. My photographer at my wedding was amateur because we couldnt afford a professional. Would anyone here be willing to doctor these up for me, please? I hate that my dress is washed out. My dress was ivory with rum pink detail. If anyone could bring that out in these as much as possible, I'd appreciate it so much! You can crop or whatever. Doesnt matter to me. Thanks

I did what I could, but you gotta remember what I had to start with, ok?

As for PSP(XI), it's a nice program and I perfer it over PS or PSE. With most pictures I begin with the Smart Photo Fix (not the One Click), as it has simple sliders for brightness, shadows, highlights, sharpening, saturation, basic WB, and blacks/whites adjustments all in dialog box. (You'll normally have to back the brightness back down some). But it's a good place to start. The Learning Center is also very good for those new to PSP.

All of these required some sharpening, coloring correcting, lots of noise reduction, etc.











That last one, darn I wish the flash would've gone off- that bright light streaming through the window really hurt some of these.

Thank you! They do look a lot better.

My cousin, who was my photographer, was trying to move me away from the bright light that was coming from the windows, but there was a lady who had came to my wedding who basically told him exactly what to do, how to pose me, and where to place me. I was sick (I was pregnant and had just gotten out of the hospital 2 days before), so I wasn't up to telling her to shut up... wish I would've now.

He didn't have a P&S, however, I dont remember what kind of camera it was.

I did a few of them. they are tough to do without a full size file, when they are reduced there really arn't enough pixels to work with, but, for what it's worth. good luck..
