    First picture uploaded to Flikr instead of to my Photobucket account.

    You can CC if you want

    I just wanted to share

    Thanks

    ~Michael~

    Also, how can I embed the actual picture instead of the link?

    Right click on the picture once you have uploaded it, then click on the little "yellow mountain" box and paste the address in. It is that simple.

    I made a couple minor modifications to see what you thought about them.

    I desaturated the muzzle to remove that blueish cast (gorrilla muzzles are actually the color I have there, the blue was reflected light) and also I cleaned up his eye just a bit.

    I also cropped a bit of the negative space to make it a bit more symmetrical.

    Simply an FYI.

    Oh My!!

    What wonderful work you do. Thanks for the embedding tip as well. EDIT: I couldn't get what you were saying? It has already been uploaded

    That blue cast was getting on my last nerve. I couldn't stand it. I tried about everything to get it to go away. How exactly did you do that?

    New layer, select the muzzle and desaturated it that way?

    I like what you have done with the eye as well. Looks more natural as well. He wasn't mad (I don't think) but was actually playing with some grass - and eating it as well. This shot was just before he started to play with that. I have some shots I may post of that grass too.

    Thanks again

    ~Michael~

    How To Post Your Pictures from Flickr/Photobucket will save me the typing :)

    OK, as to the desaturation thing... it can be done in Photoshop, but I don't use photoshop for that sort of thing. WAY too much work for such a simple task.

    I use Capture NX. In Capture NX, you click on the color point, click on the color you want to desaturate and move a slider to the left. It just does it in about 2 seconds.

    I know Photoshop is the "greatest thing since sliced bread" but frankly Capture NX is just much easier and quicker to use... I have both and use both, and I use NX 99 percent of the time for above water pictures. Underwater pictures are a different story (channel mixer is your FRIEND in underwater photography).

    Awesome. I would have never thought about channel mixing for that use.

    I appreciate the tutorial as well. It's now fixed :)

    OK... I made this little video for you to show you exactly how I did it in Capture NX.

    Click on the HD button to see the HD version of it.

    That's awesome. Seems like a very very simple fix. I mostly use PS3 because I don't have NX.

    Thanks alot for the tutorial

    I will shortly. Let me work on some more.

    I'm mostly impressed with the Gorilla shots, but might find some from the birds and other animals there
