Before and After Blog Hop

I discovered Pixel Perfect's Before and After Blog Hop.  This is where you take a SOOC (straight out of camera) picture, edit it to improve it, and post your before and after pictures.  Without further ado, here are my before and afters:

Before
 
After

I used FREE photo editing software to make this edit.  I used Photoscape to play around with the lighting, and Gimp to make the eyes pop.  I'm an average mom with a point-and-shoot camera and I don't have a lot of money to pay for expensive photo editing software so I make do with what I found free on the internet :)
Wanna have some fun with photo editing too or wanna see how other people edit their photos?  Head on over to Pixel Perfect and join in the blog hop!

I absolutely love what you can do with a picture and some free software. I do have elements, and I don't know much about how to use it. Sigh.

The edit is great! I love how you brightened it and made the eyes pop.

I love the way you cropped the photo and the color pop in her eyes! I haven't heard of photoscape. I'm off to check it out! Thanks for joining in on the fun!
