Yesterday I posted this lettering on Instagram and thought it might make a good Photoshop brush, I made two versions, both available for free to download (Valentine’s day is right around the corner after all). We are still hoping to launch our Foto Rx Photoshop actions this week and I have been a bit frantic, Michelle on the other hand is cool as a cucumber whilst the top of my head keeps popping off and steam escapes cartoon style. I am hoping to get back to a more dignified demeanor soon. I am just so darn excited, it’s the first big thing I have done since baby E. arrived and it’s making me feel like I am finally starting to get a groove going. I have felt so inept at adding any other task other than mother to my plate. I seriously don’t know how mom’s around the globe do it, it took me over a year to finally get anything done!
The photo above was edited with Foto Rx (but of course), the front most flower was suffering from overexposure so I used ‘paint on dark’ to bring back detail in the petals, if this had gotten to bright white on the overexposure mark, nothing short of time travel and taking the photo again would bring the detail back, all white overexposure means there isn’t any data to mine, thus rendering any remedy completely useless. We have included a few bonus film effect actions for you in the set, I used Matte+ a few times to get that muddy/foggy film look that is currently so popular and added film grain. The effect also helped me add my Photoshop lettering brush over the photograph without there being too much competing detail, a cool ‘trick’ to use when you want to add text to your photographs for your blog.site, Instagram, etc. Have any burning questions? Now is the time to ask them, always best to leave us comments, because it’ll be much faster to get your answers than via the abyss known as my email account.
P.S. This was shot with my Iphone, it was one of a series (I did get in one decent photo), it was an image I thought was a goner until I ran it through a Foto Rx remedy, so if you are wondering if you can edit Iphone images, the answer is yes, if you have a high enough res image!
