Ghosts and Goblins



and cute little Pirates


(Not mine, just a cute little man getting his picture taken by someone else already.)

  • So I cropped the picture.
  • Used the Photoshop Elements Color Fade Vertical action (I stuck with it since it left the pumpkin orange).
  • Then added Michelle’s Sunny Light texture and cleared it over the pirate.
  • Then I added Kim Klassen’s And Then Some texture as an overlay (I like how it gives it a old film graininess, kind of spooky-like).

    1. Thank you…the picture was so dark (it was night, ha ha), I just realized how much the texturing lightened it up.

  1. I have never heard of color fade vertical action, but just got elements 10 and need to learn it. very nice edit of a super cute kiddo that you captured

    1. Thank you. When you are in Full Edit you have all those apples? If you hover over them they say what they are. I just learned that today. When you get more comfortable with Elements make sure to check out The Coffeeshop Blog, link in my footer, she has great tutorials and teaches you how to download and use actions. Pioneer Woman has some great actions too.

  2. The spooky effect is perfect for this photo! What a cute pirate. Thank you for sharing and for linking up at Tones on Tuesday!
