AB Friday. One Photo Focus (March).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor this month’s One Photo Focus, I decided to go with something different.

I took the photo and applied the ‘glowing edges’ filter in Photoshop CS5. The details of it were: edge 5,  brightness 10, and smoothness 10. Then I applied the HDR Toning effect to the picture where I raised the saturation and lowered details.

And that was about it.


To check out other bloggers’ edits of the photo, make sure you go to Stacy’s post this week.

  1. I always play around with those glowing edges, but haven’t had the nerve to actually present a photo using them! Good job on thinking outside the box. It turned out great!

    1. Thank you. I think I’ve only done one or two others myself. I play with it, but it doesn’t seem to alway “work.” So I was excited this one did:)

  2. I didn’t even know this filter existed (well, in fact, there’s a lot about PS I don’t know, so thanks for introducing me to this!). This kind of reminds me of a technique I remember from many years ago – if I remember correctly, you would color a piece of cardboard with lots of different colored crayons, color over all with a black crayon, and then use a stylus to etch your picture through the black layer to expose the colors underneath. Does that ring any bells whatsoever or have I been smelling glue? I can picture it in my mind; I just don’t know if I’m remembering the procedure clearly. Very fun, imaginative result, Michelle 🙂

    1. Thanks Stacy! It does sound familiar but maybe I smelled the same glue, lol! I don’t recall too much of it or the name either. Hhhhmmmm
