I was curious to see if I could do ANYTHING with the really lousy photos I took at LA in 2008. I had this small, portable camera that was no where near adequate to take these kinds of photos. As I told my daughter the other day, I can do a lot with photos now, but one the things I cannot fix is blur. But I can compensate a bit for it.

So here are just two LA 2008 photos I messed with tonight. I found a few more I may be able to do something with. When or if I get the time. Tomorrow I need to actually go to bed at a decent hour as I've something kind of important to get to!

I played today!

Here are some of my LA Con 2009 photos cleaned up and looking pretty like the boys should.

As much as I loved all the other cons (especially Vancon), really the 2nd LA Con remains my all-time favorite.

Ssshhh! I'm supposed to be Christmas shopping and doing some graphics work for others...but I got lost in J2 land.

Not a bad place to lose yourself in...

I don't even remember what prompted this. I was looking for something in Photoshop and ended up doing these two fanart pieces for 5x10.

*gulps*

This is the first time I've done anything like this. And I feel I've just barely done anything to try this...but here goes!

See this is my problem with doing icons--my eyes cannot see the PRETTY. Hmmpph.

So just so *I* can see it...

I was bored. So I made some more headers and lookie(!) I made icons (which I don't make very often.) All from[livejournal.com profile] elsiecat 's Chicon 2009 photos.

Decided to resurrect one of my LA Con 2009 photos and apply some of the filtering techniques I've learned recently. Still not as good as those I've done with elsiecat's photos since mine are not as sharp as hers.

Partially because I never pay enough attention to the non-Js/Misha. And Richard has such an expressive face. And because I'm absolutely addicted to [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat 's photos (I may never want to work with my own again...) And because I'm still experimenting with a new Photoshop filter...

Needed subject matter to experiment with new Photoshop filter, so I grabbed one of [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat 's J2 panel photos. Click to enlarge.

Okay...so I couldn't leave it alone. So one more tweek.

The border on this one is fully transparent. Click to enlarge.

I had an all day meditation class yesterday. Pretty intensive. Kinda wiped me out -- in a good way but still very tiring. Good news is that among other things, participating in the class seems to have removed my insomnia--at least for one night anyway. Slept long and good last night.

Just one Misha header/banner--from [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat 's ChiCon 2009 photos. I want to do more with her photos--but it may take several days as I've got RL (Thanksgiving, etc) stuff coming up.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat and my insomnia of last night I now have a new layout.

I finally figured out that it was that darn black curtain backdrop that was messing with my Photoshop-fu in trying to make headers out of any J2 panel pics. While I liked some of my results, they were all so dark and I wanted something more lively.

So since I couldn't sleep last night...I ended up doing this. And I was very happy with the results. So I played some more to adapt one of them for a new header and came up with this...


(click to enlarge)

It has a transparent background so the background colors you see will depend upon the background of the page you are viewing.

Then I played around with my layout and the final results are below.

Plus I made a shiny new icon to match! And I think this is the first icon I've ever made that I really like. (Not that I've made a lot, mind you.)



And the icon image larger...

I really, really, really dislike insomnia. : /

But I'm getting a little closer to what I had in mind for these. I think I may need to choose a different Jensen image though. I didn't start out with this one going in this direction--so I may swap out both the Js for other J images. Right now I'm too sleep deprived to be discerning at all.

Photos are from [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat . Click to enlarge.











ETA: So I'm liking this. Made a few changes and am working on using the one below as my new header.

Damn, changing LJ layouts can be annoying sometimes...getting the colors, etc correct.

I still think I like simpler formats better. However I'm playing around with doing more than just a simple filter and framing. I like some of these better than others.

All the photos used here are from [livejournal.com profile] elsiecat 's Chicon 2009 J2 panel photos.

1) This one above is more the simple style I've been going with.

There. I feel better now.

Sheesh.

I'm posting this because perhaps I may like it in the morning. But right now I'm very doubtful of that. The Js are from elsiecat's wonderful Chicon J2 panel photos.

I wanted to try a header-type format with both Js in it. I wanted them looking at each other. But I pinky-swear that I was NOT going for lovey-dovey or cutsey. But it seemed like no matter what I tried I got either or both lovey-dovey or cutsey. *headdesk* And this is two images that I placed together so Jensen isn't even looking at Jared in the RL photo. Damn man, you have to stop looking at everyone that way.

The black curtains made it more challenging because I did not feel like cutting out the boys from the background. Heh. In the end that would have likely been faster! *g*

So whatever. I give up. I'm frustrated. And I think I have gremlins in my Macbook. Grrrr....




Oh! I did watch SPN 5x10... Should I say I cried? I cried. Damn show. *luvs*

ETA: Grumpy post is grumpy. I made an icon out of this as well. I really don't like making icons. They frustrate me even more because I never seem to put one together that satisfies me and they are so freakin' SMALL! *sigh*

These are all from the marvelous [livejournal.com profile] wolfpup2000 . You can find her ChiCon J2 Breakfast photos here, here, and here.

I did some cropping, filtering, and framing on these. First up are some collages I did of some of her photos...
