……well she looked like this.

I know, scares me too…

So I decided to do something about it.  Besides hit delete.

I loaded it into Picnik.com

And went through the following adjustments.

Cropped it so I could see that gorgeous face way up close and personal. YAY!

Gave it a little HDR-ish

Let’s go full strength just for fun.

Ok, that’s getting scarier….what does radius do?

WOW.  I recognize this kid.  She lives with me most of the time. This is her I’m tired don’t bother me look.

How about a little Holga-ish.

Looking better in a weird I’m gonna smush a bug sort of way.

Boost is always a girl’s best friend and in her case seems to take away that smush a bug look.

Pink is her color tho!

Almost framable!

That was fun. I probably didn’t need that many steps to get to the cute pinky look.

No bugs were smushed in the making of this photo.
