Turn Your Photos Into Masterpieces – Giveaway!

I’m addicted to my camera, if you haven’t noticed. I love trying to capture the moments of our everyday lives. And, although of course the quality of my pictures doesn’t come close, the expressions and “naturalness” of my photos are often much better than would be captured in a photo studio, mainly because my kid is always going to be more comfortable with me than any photographer.

So, I take my pictures, then I use my minimal Photoshop talents to try and “fix” my lack of photography skills, which some may argue just mess them up more.

So I was pretty excited when I heard the idea behind a new site called Editingg: with very easy user interface and affordable pricing, they will take your home photos and make them look like they were professionally made.

They can remove distracting objects, blur the backgrounds to make the foreground stand out more prominently, deblur a photo, touchup and enhance faces, and in general make those edits that really make your photo stand out.

They have three levels of service – Basic for $6.99, Premium for $14.99, and Advanced for $24.99, depending on what you want done to your photo. After editing, they just send the photo file back to you, and it is yours to print or publish as you like with no copyrights involved, unlike professional photography.

Editingg has given me two packages of 5 Premium edits each to give away to two of you!!! Each package is worth $75, and is a great way to enhance your photos.

To show their capabilities, they took a few of my photos and worked their magic.

I loved this photo, but it is washed out and the background is too prominent:IMG_9125

When I tried to edit it myself, I ended up over-exposing Ali’s face by over-brightening the picture:

Editingg took the photo and made it perfectly balanced: a faded out background, Ali’s eyes bright, and her coloring as it naturally should be.

This family photo was taken of us at Easter, but it was very shadowy. No matter how hard I tried to edit it, I couldn’t get rid of the shadows without messing something else up:

I LOVE the version from Editingg – SUCH an improvement!! 270b_2

I’ve always loved this pose and expression on Ali, but my refrigerator and messy dining room table always stood out to me more than Ali:
Editingg blurred the background, fixed the coloring, and made her image stand out much more prominently:

I’m really impressed with their work, and know you will be too!!!

    I'm a horrible picture taker..like I'm being totally HONEST! I love the Easter picture…I thought how could they make that better? But, somehow it got even more beautiful. Awesome!! That thing could be a life changer for me.

    And, I must say, Birmingham is beautiful and seems very cool. My youngest (who is 22) is dating someone who has the possibility of (when he gets a promotion) someday perhaps moving there. At first, I was mortified as I seem to have children that just cannot stay put and are adventurous to say the least.

    Then, I thought of you. :) I thought if my baby doll ever moves to Birmingham, I already know someone. BTW, they aren't even engaged yet. But, I'm already just reviewing my options.
    P.S. Glad my RACHEL is HOME!!!!!
