Photo Fun!

I have a quick photo tip for you today! Here is a QUICK way to give your photos some extra WOW!

Chose the photo you want to use. This technique particularly works well with portraits.
Open your photo in any photo editing program. You can get a free photo editing program called GIMP.

With your photo open find your 'burn' tool. It usually looks something like this

Now grab a large round brush shape and run it around the edges of your photo. I usually like to have my brush opacity set to about 50% for this.

Suddenly your photo has some pizzas, dimension, and a professional touch!

This looks great. I'm not a photographer, but would love to do this with some of my family pics. Hope I can figure it out. :)
