Fixing a Not So Good Photo

Principals List

This is one of Scott Kelby’s Photoshop CS Down and Dirty tricks “making a snapshot photo effect in photoshop” that I think I will try to use again…you can use a “not so good” photo, isolate the subject and make it fun! Here I have my daughter Rebecca at her Principal’s Honour banquet holding her certificate against a pretty boring background.

By putting her in a snapshot (putting a stroke around her and shadowing it) and then changing the background I was able to make the photo fun and memorable. The text font is Courier New.
