Oh.... so about photoshopping....

Recommended Posts

As I was saying (in the other thread) their are other reasons to use photoshop, other than to hide your favorite fishing lakes / spots.

Here's a good example;

Had a guy in another boat, take this photo of this beautiful 7.60 Smallie...

Of course straightening out the horizon is "one click" easy. Problem is, then you end up with a photo like this...

So, if you know what your doing, and with a little practice, you can clone in the blank area, and end up with a nice photo. Same thing is you have some jellous idiot in the back ground giving you the finger ;-) You can just just make him disapear..... No ugly scribbling, or blurring neccessary.

Of course I always keep an original copy (of my biggest, most important catches) in my PC, just in case anyone should ever question any of my catches.....

But the point is, corrections in photoshop are not that hard, and can usually be done in a way that doesn't distract from the photo.

Peace,

Fish

FC,

     That Smallie looks bigger than 7.6.    What a fatty she is.

Nice one!

No big deal Chris; You wanna hide the lake hide it. I am grateful you take the time to post sutff at all.

For real, most photoshopped stuff here is making fun of either Russ or Redliner or some guy wanting readers to focus in on a piece of equipment or a fish , absolutely no big deal. With you fish , they take up so much of the screen you don't even need to photoshop

Yea', the Smallies in that lake tend to be long and really tall, but kind of flat, from side to side. Makes for nice photographs, but they don't end up as heavy as you might guess on the scale.

Again, that's why I thought surely when this one first jumped, that it was going to be 9 plus lbs ! And BTW, if a fish which you believe is a 9 plus Smallie, jumping, doesn't lodge your heart in your throat, I don't know what will :-) LOL

Peace,

Fish

Like I always say, if I wanted a shot of the birds, and the trees, and the mountains, and the lake, I'd put the fish in the live well, and get the heck out of the way of the camera ;-)

But if its a fish photo, put that darn thing up to the lens ! Lets see it right here !  :-)

Peace,

Fish

Nice job with the cloning tool. I use it a lot for corrections like removing power lines, people, etc...

I added a bit of contrast, because they look better that way on my monitor, and from my printer.

You didn't say whether or not you thought "darker" was better, or worse.... But either way, you must remember that everyone viewing photos on the internet, sees them somewhat differently, based on the monitor they are viewing them with. So, even if you didn't care for the darker, higher contrast of the 3rd shot, on your monitor, you might like it better on mine.

Peace,

Fish
