  • @kdotstudio U r awesome my friend! 😁

  • This is Part 2 - see part 1 for the preliminary steps

  • Figure 1 - I then opened the file in Photoforge2 and used the shadow/highlight function to reduce the brightness of the whites in the background (I felt it pulled the eye in the wrong direction) You can use any standard editing app for this Snapseed, Filterstorm, Photo Wizard and Iris Photo Suite are other great editing apps. I tend to use Photoforge2 a lot due to it's ease of use in blending layers.

  • Figure 2 - I reopened the image in Photo Lake and added more reflection just below the boat. It's a small detail and doesn't show much in the final but I felt it necessary to share this extra step.

  • Figure 3 - I opened the image in ShockMyPic and "shocked" it using the smallest brush size. It's hard to see this in the image above but it gives it that painted look. I actually did another step here but didn't add it to the image above - I opened the shocked image and the one just before it in Photoforge2 and blended the two together to bring back some of the fine details lost in the shock treatment

  • Figure 4 - I opened the image in ScratchCam and added the color filter and some light texturing

  • Figure 5 - I then opened the image in Snapseed and increased the Saturation and Also Sharpened the Image (Snapseed is my favored sharpening app)

  • Figure 6 - I then opened the image in Grungetastic to add a little more texture, smudges, and the border.

  • Figure 7 - I then opened the image in Frame Magic. This is the app that gives you the drop shadow around the photo

  • Figure 8 - I then reopened the framed image with Photoforge2 once more and bumped the saturation just a little more (Grungetastic tends to dull the colors) I also added my logo in the bottom corner as a blended layer. The logo is white on black background and blended on "add" in the styles drop down of the layer.

  • That is all for this one. It's a lot of steps I realize, but once you get accustomed to all the apps it seems a lot simpler than it sounds 😊 Happy Editing!!!!
