I enjoyed the first day of “Photo Week” on Creativelive.com. The first class I watched was Bring Details to Life with Alien Skin and Sue Bryce. She showed how to retouch a portrait using Photoshop and then adjusting the feel of the photo with Alien Skin’s Exposure. It has a whole range of color or black and white styles and then you can make adjustments in frame, grain, color and more. You can download a free trial at http://www.alienskin.com/exposure/
This is the fun stuff I like to play with when I need to add a little more creativity to my photography!
