Sometimes less is more….


I wanted to share this with you, when it comes to editing vintage photos, it is not always necessary to do a lot of fixes. 

This is a photo of my husband’s grandfather who he never met…

Raymond Elwin Scribner Sr

Great photo, in great shape, just “muddy” color….


I opened it in my Windows Live Photo Gallery and adjusted the contrast, the shadows and a bit of highlights….I also cropped out the edges…

This is all this needs and it took about 45 seconds!  If you have Windows, look at using the Photo Gallery for editing photos that are not trashed.  For those you need Vertus or PSE.


Just an FYI….

I use the Windows photo editing all the time...of course it took me a long time to figure out that I could do that. I still want to learn PSE to be able to change the backgrounds and change color photos to black and white. I can't seem to et that right in Windows.
I'm glad you got the Ivins box and the cookies...I hope it gave you a smile.

I can relate. Bailey is just adorable, but I'd forgotten how much work puppies are. Hang in there on that. I love the trombone photo of your relative.My son is a trombone performance major. I'll try that photo editing.
