did you have this scene set up in front of you? because i am kinda wondering about the shadows, it seems to me that it is to little, it you know what i mean, but i might be wrong. other that that they are good. i did a painting of two peaches right next to each other, a few weeks ago. my sis has that painting right now. so i am pretty familar with looking at peaches.

Yes, I had it set up on the rail of my deck , so the shadows are prety close to what they were.

Lightbulb Julia

Hey good job Julia but I think you should give that picture a better crop job so that the eye catches on the painting more instead of the surrounding picture. Love the peaches so well done I think I can actually feel the fuzz on them.

Bug, thank you for looking and the comments!

The problem is that I have to take the photo outside so I would not have the flash working and giving the painting unwanted flash
"bleaches" and it difficult for me to take the picture in the position which would give a closer crop . I had a spinal surgery last year and have titanium rods in my back practicly on the whole length of my spine so bending or stretching other then straight is quite painful And I borrow the digital from a friend so I have very short time to experiment . I know I should get one of my own and I need to start working on building my website too.

Excuses , excuses

Julia

Lightbulb Cropping

Darn Julia I wish I could crop this for you but the only problem is I only no how to do this if I have the jpg in my machine. I know it can be done some way right from the forum but I haven't the know how. Hopefully someone will read this soon and do it for you. I've seen a lot of threads where one member takes the picture from another and changes it then puts it back on. So calling all can someone help Julia crop this picture?

Bug, tell me what do you do with your computer to crop . I do have photo shop but I just can change the colors there slightly . I am not to experienced with it. My son will come for a visit this weekend I will ask him . He is computer programmer so maybe he will help me. He lives 3 hours away so I ussualy do not ask for the help .

Thank You,

Julia

Red face I'll Do My Best!

Ok Julia I'm about in your shoes but I'll give this a try. when I open a jpg. oh wait I have microsoft photo editor so I'm not sure what to tell you now. ok maybe yours is basically the same. Once I open the picture I have a tool bar across the top of my machine. there is a dotted line square I hit this and then drag my pointer around the picture leaving an outline where the picture will be cut, then I hit my right side mouse button and this shows a little box and one of the words showing is crop I just click on it and the picture is cut. thats it then when I exit out the picture it will ask if I want to save the changes and I hit the yes button and it's all done.

he-he not sure if this will help but if not maybe you can ask in the computer forum for help on how to do this with photo shop.

If someone doesn't come along soon to help, we could always try you sending your picture directly to me and I can crop and send it back. Hey maybe that could work.

Bug, thank you . I found how to crop in my program
My program is MGI Photo Suite III.

I would not be able to crop all around the painting completely because I took it under the angle but at least some of it.

Ta-ta,

Julia

Cool Julia

Well done.
Now you can play with it a bit and see how it looks cropped even more without having to save the changes, it will just let you see it differently. Have fun.
