    I have a few pictures of myself below that I would like people to play with if they have time to get the best out of them!

    If you do this could you please explain to me what you have done after so I know for future ref'

    I am still learning how to use my camera but would like to learn more about the skills used afterwards as well to help get a better finish.

    So if people wouldnt mind having a go prehaps even creating a border on them that would be great.

    I really like this sort of finish:

    I think you should focus on getting better images in camera before worrying after funky after effects and processing you can do.

    I'm not trying to be mean, but just because photoshop can do alot of enhance an image, it must still be a good, well exposed image in order to allow for alot of the manipulations that the software can do.

    If you are really in need of a well done, quick photo, and do not know the basics of either photography or processing to get it done, I'd suggest finding someone to take the photo and edit it for you.

    It also limits what people can do when you only have grayscale color data.

    My guesses would be no... Sorry. If you got some better exposures that aren't in B&W that would be a good start.

    Its a low res jpg image. Can't really do much to that as working with jpgs is typically destructive to the image.
