family picture with the old truck

Here is our family picture we got taken for our Christmas card. I was surprised the old lady wanted the old truck in the picture

If she reads that you referred to her as "The Old Lady" I'll be surprised if you survive till Christmas. LOL

Nice picture.

Re: family picture with the old truck

We did one with my old truck last year.

How did you do the old look, photoshop or something simple?

The old look of the truck or picture. The truck just looks old. And our photographer did the effect of the picture. I wish I knew how to do it. I like the look. Great picture

There is a website called "piknik" for photos. It's pretty cool. You can play around with your pics and make them look old or whatever you want. Some of the stuff you have to pay for, but I always just use the free stuff. Here's just a quick example of some simple things you can do. I tried to make the first pic look like an artist's sketch.The other one I turned black and white, then re-colored the trees.

Re: family picture with the old truck

Neat, Looks like maybe you used the HDR for the first one, how did you do the black and color trick?

I started with a color photo and uploaded it. Then clicked on the "effects" tab. Chose black and white. Then a box comes up called effect painting and just played with it until I got it the way I wanted. You can also use the zoom function and this helps a lot for this type of stuff. When my daughter first showed me the website, I played around on it for about 3 hours just seeing what all the functions did. I'm sure there are better programs out there, but I like this one because it's free and easy. I also like that when you're done, you still have the original picture without the touchups.

Re: family picture with the old truck

Here's is mine of my wife and I taken last month. It isn't the best cause I had to blow it up and somewhat distorted the picture.

Re: family picture with the old truck

I don't have any complete family ones, but here is my youngest daughter in the back of my truck around 1980. She is now 34, I've had the truck 38 years.
