Photos: Before and After

OK. I spent quite a bit of time doing some photo editing today. Yep, I tried my patience...And I survived! I just updated the photos in our Etsy shop for our two newest items. What do you think?



The above picture is the "before" picture. Then I went online to picnik (it's free!) and did some editing to brighten it up. I've had an account with picnik since February, but I just had no patience to use it! My computer is very slow...So it took a lot of time to do something just really small, but I hung in there and toughed it out. I poked around the editing section and tried different things. Here is the "after" picture that I just posted to our shop.


What a difference some photo-editing software does, right??? Yep, even though it was time-consuming, it was worth it. But I do wish for the day when I can get a new computer and Photoshop!!! That would make life just a teeny bit easier, I think.

So I edited photos for our two newest listings in the shop. You can check them out by clicking on the links below:

With the success of today's photo-editing, I'm going to attempt to edit some of the other pictures we've got that are already in our shop. Wish me luck. It might take me awhile, but I'm working on it. =)
