I’ve owned CS2 for about five years now and have never really used it until recently. Not quite sure why, but for some reason Photoshop intimidated me. In addition, I pretty much prefer to keep my photos true to how they were originally taken, aside from adjusting the levels and contrast if need be. I figured iPhoto was sufficient for that. Hahaha… There seems to be a huge difference between the two programs 🙂

Anyway, I was a little bored this morning so I thought I would play around with more advanced post-processing techniques and here are the two pictures I ended up with. The first one was created using this tutorial. I like the old feel it has… Looks much better than the original in my opinion.

I created this one on my own. I like how it has a comic book feel, but think I should’ve left my friend straight B&W instead of applying a 15% warming filter.

What do you think?
