Taking Photoshop Requests

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I have decided to offer my services again. But i will only do 3 requests a week, for a few months, as i don't live on my computer, and have other things in life to do. As well as normally i get paid to do these things, but am offering these for free. So on to the good stuff...

Post your pictures in a link, so this forum doesn't get all clogged and take longer to load.

The pictures MUST be good quality! Working with really pix-elated pictures is hard and the results never turn out as good. The preferred size of the pictures would be at least, at LEAST 800 X 600.. Hopefully larger, if you don't know how big it is, right click on the picture, click on properties down at the bottom, click on details.

Please list what you would like done.

*Background

*color

*text

all optional of course.

Examples below

Babies

Will you do anything non-horsey? I have an idea of something I want to get done for a friend...

Then again, in thinking about it I don't really have any pictures that would suit...

I wrote a song for my best friend and I'd love the lyrics of the chorus or the first half of the chorus to be on a background that sort of goes along with the song...but I don't have any pictures to go with it...

Unless you have an idea!

The lyrics are:

Butterfly

Spread your wings and soar above

The pain and sorrow

To a wonderful, beautiful tomorrow

You've been set free at last

And it's time to say goodbye

To the dark and broken shell of the past

Butterfly

My feeling for this was having it in sort of a soft, sort of almost transparent font and color, floating over the picture with a purple (maybe multicolored with purple being the main color, something like what you have in your signature) background of some sort and a butterfly or two...but I don't have any pictures of butterflies that would fit it.

So if you don't have anything in mind...then I have another project, and this would be for my mom.

She had to sell her baby, Jubilee last summer and I'd like to take two or three pictures and collaborate them and put Jubilee's name on it...mom loves purples, greens, and blues. Here are the pictures you are welcome to use.

Hope I posted them the way you would like them to be posted!

:notworthy: :notworthy: Thanks for putting the offer out there.

Hmm photobucket resized the photos for me...the originals are larger than that so I can send them to you if you decide to take my project on. Thanks again!

sure i will give it a shot. so on the first one with the butterfly thing... as i was reading it, this idea was forming, but im not sure if i still have the pictures for it, but i will see..i will give it a try. :D

As for the second one..yes the pics are kinda small but not bad, and they are clear which is a great help, but if you do have the bigger ones that would be awesome! :D

YOU ROCK :grin:

I do have some butterfly pictures but they are all orange and black which I don't know that they would go with a purple background. And even though her favorite thing in the world is butterflies, she doesn't really like the orange and black ones as much :confused0024: I don't even know what I'm thinking, I'm not very creative when it comes to these kind of things but I don't think it'd be too hard...I'd have a go at it if I could figure out what I wanted...LOL but I'm still really new to Photoshop Elements as it is and I really want it to be pretty...she's going through a rough time right now and I know it'd brighten her right up...IF I could figure out what I wanted.

I do have much bigger...like 2000x1333 bigger...where shall I send them to?

Might as well go for the Jubilee project since I'm clueless on the other one.

Why thank you, i have always appreciated how kind you have always been to me even though we have never actually met. :D

so i have done the butterfly ones :D and am working on the horse one. No one else has posted so i figured i would do both. The butterfly one was easy too. But you can't see the butterfly one until i have done the horse one ;) I actually made a couple butterfly ones you can have, so you can choose if you want.. and if you want anything changed just let me know of course :D

oh yes i am one of your "likes" on FB i enjoy your photography. :D where do you promote your photography beside FB and in your HC siggy? Im kinda struggling with that..

Lol you're funny!

And thank you for your rather generous comment about my photography :ashamed0002: It's just a hobby for me...

I don't promote my photography anywhere else...but that is because I don't have any training whatsoever. Just a decent camera and a couple of lenses. I would struggle with the advertising as well though if I wanted to. I am so bad with pursuing that kind of thing and I don't ever know where to begin! So you're not alone at all!! You are so good and I am one of your likes on your photography page too lol and you definitely deserve to be seen! I know Facebook can be big but I don't know how to attract the attention really.

Thank you :huggy:

You sounds exactly like me! No training whatsoever, just a good camera and some lenses. :D

But hey not everybody wants out-of-the-class same as everybody else's pictures.. Its good to have your own unique style.

It is also just a hobby for me too... right now.. :) Sounds like we are kinda in the same boat! :smileywavey:

Well thank you for "liking" my page again.. haha FB can be weird at times. :crazy:

So ive tried sending it over email and its not working...

so here are the links for the butterfly ones..

Umm so you expect me to pick a favorite out of those???

I don't think I can do it!

Thank you SO MUCH. You took what I had in my head and put it into a picture without much of a description to go on. That's just awesome.

Only one thing I noticed, which is super easy to change.

The last lyric, "butterfly" should be separate from "the dark and broken shell of the past"...so it doesn't sound like the past butterfly (since the past of a butterfly is a cocoon and the shell is the old cocoon)...uh does that make sense? So it should be something like "the dark and broken shell of the past...Butterfly" or you can omit the last "butterfly". It can be alone at the end even without a period...not too worried about that. Once I pick a favorite, then you can fix it...but umm picking a favorite is going to be hard. I'm going to say that I probably like the first and third best...but my heart leaps with each one of them.

Golly, I love those...absolutely stunning. Oh she is going to love it. LOVE it.

Can anyone help me pick a favorite? PLEASE? :crazy::grin:

ETA: I just noticed that you spelled "goodbye" as "goodby"...lol...and "its" should be "it's" as in "it is time to say goodbye"...eh...don't mind me, I don't mean to be so picky about the words lol

Shani...

I would love a new siggy picture.. but I am totally totally clueless and have no imagination whatso ever..

I am also very inept at posting links, and not the image. Maybe Tinsy would help me post the link??

I love purples and pinks. I LOVE your lightning siggy. I have a couple pictures in mind.. let me see if I can get just the link to post..

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb355/eskielvr1/apaisley.jpg

And I want to include a pic of Piper and I, I am looking for the link..

And your favorite is definitely my favorite as well. Wowwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!! :happy0203:

Thank you...so much...this means so much to me. :huggy:

No changes needed...I would love to have the bigger sizes. I like the butterfly one with the Butterfly at the end...that was perfect!!

I would think you'd want to put a little signature in the corner or something marking it as your work cause you're awesome enough to mark your work...

I would also love to have a picture for my siggy. I don't have to many pictures of my horse Midas (and the ones I do have he is still skinny). I have several of my Monster though. I am also not very creative. Monster's colors are navy blue and purple. Midas's colors are turquoise and black.

Here are a few pics of each.

I could take more if you needed. If you can't work with any of them it is cool too. I'm not the best picture taker lol. TIA!

eta: those pics you did for Tins are amazing! Love the one of Jubilee.

Eski- sure those pictures will work fine.. So i should just mess around with the pictures and see what i can up with? you don't have any idea at all?

TT- aww thanks, so glad your friend and mom like them. as for the name, im not going to worry about that on these... :ph34r: haha ..................oh yes check your email if you haven't already.. let me know if you get the pics..

Sayge- well its whatever you want to see in your siggy.. :winking: .. in my view, Midas is rather skinny in the pictures though.. Monster's are better.. Maybe if you wouldn't mind you could take some recent ones of Midas, he is beautiful., he deserves to have a good picture :happy0203: if you wouldn't mind of course.

hints on picture taking... get more straight on looking at his side, and get farther back then zoom in,(but not to much), it helps even out his body parts. :winking: also maybe crouch down just a tad, so your eyes are looking right into the middle of his side. (too high or too low makes him look wonky)

If you are interested here is an excellent page on it. With example pics :D

Well... problem is that is kind of what he looks like still. We have only had him for 2 weeks. It'll be several weeks before he is picture worthy. Might have to wait.

Thanks for the link!

Sayge- i can do Monster's... I can also do Midas's too but, personally i would wait till he gains some weight. but its up to you.

For anybody else. Not taking anymore requests right now...Life just heaped a load..
