Default Re: LOA Contest Week 3:

I used Sweet Made's beautiful template Flutterby Time for my family heritage photo. I used Photoshop 7.0 to edit my original photo. I started with a duplicate layer, then cropped and removed the dust and scratches with the healing brush. Then per Steph's suggestion in her Easy Photo Edit in PS tutorial, I used Levels to give the image more contrast on the RGB channel. I decided to adjust the shadows and highlights manually instead of using auto. Once I got it to the contrast that I was looking for I used Color Balance to adjust the sepia tone. I then further adjusted the sepia color in Channel Mixer under the separate color channels until I was happy with the color tone. When finished I sharpened the image with Unsharp Mask.
