Perfect Pics

PicMonkey, oh how I love you.  You make me and my nearest and dearest look absolutely flawless.  I have become obsessed with photo editing now that I discovered Pic Monkey and all of its "Photo Shop for Dummies" editing tools.  I'm sure I'm overdoing it.  My teeth are just a little too white and my skin a little too smooth but I can't help it; I'm a kid with a new toy.



Can you see the difference (besides the obvious crop)?  Our eyes were all red and glassy (because it was the end of the night and we had a little too much fun a.k.a. Jameson) so I brightened them.  I tried to whiten our teeth but that was over the top fake looking.

I airbrushed our skin which just kind of blurs it out but I think it makes it look softer.  My nose was a little red (again, the booze) and that always bothers me in pictures.

Another example-

I just joined LinkedIn and I needed a profile picture.  It can't hurt to look your best right?


After: Ok this one might be too much ;)

I LOVE picmonkey too. I'm still figuring it out and trying not to go over the top! I've been playing around with some of our wedding pics. Our photographer didn't edit them AT ALL, so it's nice to be able to make some of the shots a little more artsy. Maybe one or two will actually get printed and put up now.

I have to check out that editing site. I feel overwhelmed with all the editing sites and apps. Can't there just be one that's easy and has everything? lol. But seriously, you do NOT need any editing!
