Playing with Pictures

Paul and I are sick this weekend, so we've been moping around, taking turns trying to get stuff done around the house.

In between all of the being sick and the moping, I've discovered Photoshop actions (mostly compliments of Pioneer Woman).

So using her "heartland" action, this photo of Paul, became this:


And this picture of us in front of the steel mill, was done up in Seventies style.


And one of the pictures of us in front of an old hotel, that I didn't really like, is much improved with a seventies action.


I'm sure you can do something similar on Flickr, using Picnik, but if you don't want to spring for that, and you already own Photoshop, this is an easy way to edit photos without having to pay anything extra.

Amazing photos! I really like the vintage / '70s theme concept that the photos are conveying. It really captures those perfect moments of love and bliss!
