Ok, so….maybe there will be another iPod post or two. Because this I have got to share. If I had any doubts about how important editing is, they are gone now.
Two days ago I needed to update my profile picture at work. I had my little camera on hand my not my jump stick that allows me to easily upload my pictures onto my computer. But wait…I had my iPod. Giving it a try I quickly took this horrific picture of myself (which I’m now sharing with the world – cringe):
Here comes Pixlromatic – another iPod app to the rescue! Selected “Jean” than “Rain” than “Cornered” frame…and magic…a useable profile picture that won’t scare away my coworkers.
I was so excited I did a little dance. Really…it’s the little things in life. J
Lesson 1: Editing can make a huge difference.
Lesson 2: Sometimes less detail (especially when it comes to close shot of a tired face) can be a good thing.
Lesson 3: The changing the tone of a picture using a filter can have a drastic impact on the end result.
