Second Life Image Editing Pt1

Second Life Image Editing Pt1

March 24, 2012 |  by  |  photo editing, tutorial

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!

The first series of this tutorial is me giving you basic instructions on photoshop and some tips I’ve learnt along the way. The actual image editing will be highlighted more in future tutorials.


That’s the final sped up video for the shot. It combines all elements taught underneath this post:

Hihi! I’ve been taking a lil break off working and chillaxing around cleaning up my inventory and hoping to get back to the swing of blogging some of those inventory thingies I cleaned out. There’s been so much amazing mesh released lately that I originally made a “Mesh” folder for my inventory but now all of them are sorted into the usual categories I made.

One thing I love about mesh is how much more masculine options we can wear properly now without prims jutting in and out of our bodies crazily. I just wish there was better sizing options cause even with standard sizing, I’m between a xs and a s, not quite a perfect fit. This post shows some items which aren’t exactly made for mens, but they do fit very loose and relaxed, kinda as if you took mens items and put em on, something I’ve been waiting for in SL for a long long time. more?
