Second Life Image Editing Pt1

Second Life Image Editing Pt1

Hi folks! I’ve recently posted up a video on Flickr showing a quickie on the kind of editing I do on my pictures. With that in mind I wanted to do a few more challenging images with complicated editing to make a series of SL image editing tutorials.

Keep in mind, I’m not a pro with editing images, I always kinda… mess up, undo and figure things out. The biggest tip I can share about photoshoping is really – practice! I’ve been DIY-ing with Photoshop for years and years now… so all it takes is patience and just that. With Secondlife shots is that everyone has their own unique technique. You might like to shoot with shadows and then edit from there, you might like to green screen or take the full image in world. Whatever your method is, I hope this tutorial helps you somewhat!
