Glamour Photo Effects

Wild Purple Iris with Glamour Photo Effects
I promised a few folks that I would start sharing basic steps that I use to edit my photos using Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.

The photograph above is a good example of a quick and easy edit you can add to spruce up your images using the glamour photo effect.

Original Photograph with No Photo Effects
This was the original image (shadow added for display) with nothing more done to the photo beyond applying the unsharp mask.

Although I felt the photo was fine, it seemed to be missing something, so I decided to add some minor photo effects, in this case, a little bit of glamour to add some romance to the shot.

Select: Effects > Photo Effects > Film and Filters

A new smaller window will open. Next to film looks, select glamour from the drop down menu and then click ok.

That is all there is to it. The entire process, including resizing and optimizing for the web, takes less than 2 minutes.

    Thanks for that lesson! Since I am scanning tons of old photos, maybe that will help some.
