brinkley is 2!

Happy Birthday to my niece, Brinkley! She turned two yesterday.  Isn’t she the cutest?  I’m a very blessed aunt.  She’s so sweet and she loves her little giraffe, Stretch.

For the edit I used photoshop elements to warm up the white balance and adjust the levels.  I also increased the saturation just a bit and cloned out a few stray hairs.  I know I still have lots to learn about editing.  I’m trying to get there!

  5. Deb- I think it came out great. I don't think I would have done anything different. I am completely intimidated by Photoshop & I don't even have it. It has taken me a long time to get familiar with Picnik & it's basic in comparison. I think Photoshop will be my next purchase- someday when I am feeling brave & have lots of time to get proficient with it.
