Monkeying around

I was playing around with the PicMonkey picture editor.

Oscar De La Renta Lavender top - Eileen Fisher lavender cardigan 
And these were the results.

Flower print skirt Tracy Evans - Black and gold weges Guess

I usually keep my editing very limited, because I lack
time and also skills.

It's my personal opinion that when you edit too
much lose a bit of identity.


Maybe I would not think that way if I did know how to edit.

Gold vintage pendant 
Do you use any particular picture editing tool ?

I tend to agree - especially when we're talking about blog photos, not say, ones for a glossy magazine or published book. I'm all for a little bit of editing (and of course it's cool just to have fun sometimes like with these cute shots), but there's no need to (proverbially) airbrush each and every shot to no end (I never do so with my outfit snaps either).

Very pretty skirt - I am such a fan of vibrant florals set on black backgrounds.

Such fun edits! All I do is resize and crop my blog photos, I just use Paint.Net for that, it's the easiest I've found so far! :) Similar to the programs I used in school, but free :)

yeah, editing can be tricky, but I usually only use Pixlr to slightly tough up photos. Fun skirt girl!

cute photos! I agree, I like to keep things simple, just make everything look a little brighter, a little sharper, and eliminate all pimples ;)

Love your pendant, it's so pretty!

I'm pretty good at editing now, but it's taken a long time to get there! Love the skirt!

I still LOVE that skirt! I usually crop my photos and sometimes warm them up a little if the exposure makes me look particularly pasty. I wish I knew more about photography and photo editing, but I personally prefer photos to look real. (That said, I love your photo with the falling light speckles.) It's always weird to seem someone's family photos where everyone is practically unrecognizable because they've been so touched up.
