Been Playing with Photoshop

I love taking photos of the kids.  Who doesn’t like capturing the memories?  Kids grow up way too fast and so it’s great to capture the moments when we can. 

On Easter I took tons of pictures of the kids, not only running around the yard hunting eggs, but I also took the moment to take some spring pics since they were dressed nice! *smiles*

After loading up the photos I was disappointed that my 10 megapixel camera wasn’t taking the photos the level that it should.  Then it dawned on me, professional photographers edit their photos, a lot.  So, I went over to the coffee tea photography site and downloaded ALL the actions.  Yea, I had nothing better to do.  After I uploaded them, I began playing with photos and found out not only is it time consuming to find the action that you like the best, BUT it’s addicting!  Sorry Zack that I was so absorbed in the computer last night!

As y’all can see I redid the photos in my header, all have been edited.  However I am going to show y’all the befores and afters of them all. {photo overload below} *smiles*

Wow! Those are really good. I love the one where you left only the color of the dress. I've heard of actions before and I know The Pioneer Woman has them too and my friend loves them. Enjoy...I'm sure Zack will forgive you.

I enjoy photo editing. It's very creative. I've also learned that the lens on a camera makes a HUGE difference.

Your pictures are wonderful!
