I have been trying to upload my picture for 2 days now and it won't work. I've never had this problem before. I tried using 2 different browsers, but neither worked.

Baby Gundi’s new hairbow Can you see how happy I am about my new style?
http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...st-week-3.html

This is a old scanned photo from me.
First I resected the red parts from the peplum of the dress and the sofa. The rest of the pic got a lot of the colour yellow. After that I played a bit wir contrast, light and focus. At last I insetted the red parts again.
Sorry for poss. bad English. My image editing program is in German and I had to translate it laborious.

Here is the original photo:

I would like to say a few words to the photo yet. There is almost no photos with my mom …she always say ”Oh! I look so terrible at photos” and - hey presto - a cut! … and mom is gone

I upload the photo and I get a message that it has been unloaded, but I can't find it anywhere. This is from the Gallery. I did it last night and had hoped it would materialize this morning, but no luck. Then I tried 2 more times and gave up.

Cropped
Brightened
Desaturated/faded out color
Turned black/white
Mini fusion action
defogged

Here is my layout. I used the quickpage True Love by MAH Designs and SKrapper Digitals. In Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9, I used the Automatic Saturation Enhancement and One Step Photo Fix to correct my photo. The font is CluffHmkBold and the fishing pole is by Brownedeyed Susan.

I finally got the pictures to upload. I hope the other tries didn't leave pictures hanging out somewhere.

This is the original photo:


This is the final qp:



I uploaded the following text in the Gallery, but it didn't take. I'll try to add it again.


Credits:

True Love Quickpage from the True Love Mega Kit by MAH Designs and SKrapper Digitals
Link: https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudi...d7d59f18addf76

I also used paper-03 from Flower Scraps’s Eileen kit as a background behind my granddaughter. I couldn’t find the kit in the shop to link to.

Description:

My son, daughter-in-law and I have dslr cameras, but many of the pictures get taken with our iPhones. This picture was taken with an older phone, but I loved the smile and bright eyes, so I chose it to work on.

I always start by checking to see if Auto Curves or Auto Levels will take care of my problems. That didn’t work with this photo so I used my tried and true method: I located my white and dark points using the Histogram. Then I brought up a curves layer and used the white and black eyedroppers on these points. This corrected the color in the photo.

I added the presets “Darker” and “Increase Contrast 1” in Levels. I created a new independent layer by holding down the option/alt key and selecting Merge Layers in the Layer palette.

I moved this layer to the True Love qp. I also added paper-03 from the Eileen kit behind the picture. Then I used a a layer mask around Tate to remove the background and let the new paper show through. I used a black brush with 50% opacity and 50% fill to go around the edges of the hair. This let the loose strands show through and only a little of the background. It was the first time I had tried this and was happy with the result.

I picked this qp because of the contrast it provided to my photo.

I tried 3 times to upload the credits and how I made changes in the gallery. I got a message that my comments were uploaded successfully, but I can't see them. Hope this doesn't disqualify me.

Week 3 layout

My partner Steve took this photo off me with his phone last year. I've used this photo in B & W before but never tried the Brighten & Pop technique until now. I wanted to have that dreamy look as that so works with this photo.

I used the Early Morning Light freebie quickpage by Piggy Scraps Designs plus the bonus element (heart) that came with the QP.

I used the Brighten & Pop and the Beyond Black & White tutorials then on the black and white photo I used a filter to make it into a pencil drawing.

On the page I added some word art from With every Heartbeat by Feli Designs https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudi...5bbe94942e841c

It's been noted Pam - I'm going to go in and see if I can figure out why it's doing this to you.... in the meantime, can you clear your cookies/cache in your web browser, this may make the glitch go away, I have to do this periodically with mine, sometimes cookies can interfere with each other and cause all kinds of wonky things to happen!
