The Whole Story

The image is of my daughter in her wedding dress. She needed to send an image as a resource to someone who is making a cake decoration. I took the time afterward to use my iPhone and shoot some images for myself because I liked the red "Dorothy of OZ" like shoes and couldn't resist making something to mark the occasion. I used a lot of the techniques I learned from you and reading the iART CHRONiCLES tutorials etc. First Snapseed > I'm using the Mobile Monet just for the outline image you immediately get from the app. I save this outline version for later. Then I usually run it through any number of Painter type apps looking for the emotional feeling I want. I follow that by running it though DistressedFX, save it and bring it into the Image Blender app. Combine it with the outline image I saved earlier and tweak it (usually with the Multiply mode). I either go back to Snapseed or PhotoToaster to adjust exposure, sharpness and add a border. Depending on the image I'll use Repix for stars or dust.
