Photoshop request

Postby Brah » Sun, 03 Jan 2016 5:34 pm

I don't have PhotoShop and I understand it to be fairly expensive, plus takes some expertise to use it well.

I have a photo I need shopped, only some minor modifications, and would gladly pay someone to edit it for me.

Any suggestions or takers?

TIA!

I use photobucket for image hosting, and also editing. It does more than I'd ever need (editing wise) and is free. Worth a look?

Brah, you could use Gimp.
https://www.gimp.org/

It's free with functionality (and complexity) similar to PS.

Could you please tell what are exactly the minor modifications? Sometimes what appears to be minor judging by the expected final effect, in reality may take a lot of work.

an alternative to Gimp is Paint.NET you can get it here: http://www.getpaint.net/download.html
it was originally touted as a replacement for paint by MS but then never made it on windows.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

For Windows platform, I always used Irfan View, simple tool to trim, resize, and tilt etc, and also for minor inserts etc.

Depends on 'shopping required; though photoshopping implies manipulation of the subject* instead of just the image as a whole.

*removing/adding something vs adjusting color, lighting, composition or exposure.

irfan view offers some basic features and it can do some advanced things if you install and configure the plugins but if you want to do something like what photoshop offers but not the complexity then Paint.NET is more apt.

You can download Photoshop 2 for free from here. http://www.redmondpie.com/download-adob ... still-can/

As you say, it takes something of a learning curve to use. You can send your photo to me with desired changes or if you changes are relatively simple, you might try a couple of free/inexpensive programs.

Corel Paintshop Pro is a very good photo editor... it does most of what Photoshop does, it just doesn't work in CMYK space. About $80.

There are online apps as well that are free: http://www.picmonkey.com/?gclid=Cj0KEQi ... Ahsu8P8HAQ

Have fun. Happy new year.

Thanks everyone. I use the Microsoft stuff regularly and have been using IrfanView and Gimp for some time for simple edits, but really need something more sophisticated for a more subtle level of editing. I will look into the links from SE and try my hand at it.

Gimp has been called "poor man's photoshop."

I've used it for photo post processing and digital painting after I stopped using Windows as my personal, home use OS.

I use PS Element, if it's not too complicated I might be able to help you, just let me know.
