Haha. Very friendly, but needs to be walked 3 times/day. LikeLike Reply Such a beautiful photo! Good editing job too! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thankyou! You noticed the background too! LikeLike Reply LOVE this!! How did you edit this, Michael, if I may ask? Excellent portrait of your dog! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I use an editing suite called Cyberlink PhotoDirector 11. I used the “Savanah” Style Template to first convert the entire image. Then it allows me to adjust the intensity to a more subtle level and then erase the effect on any area – in this case our dog. I love this feature of being able to deselect a portion of the image – it does the same with creating blurred backgrounds. I don’t use the Photoshop CC b/c I didn’t want a subscription-based program. I use Photoshop Essentials 13 sometimes, which has lots of filters/effects – but allows very little fine tuning of them. I chose Cyberlink a few years ago b/c of the high ratings for photoediting software, and am very pleased at how user-friendly it is. What software do you use? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you, Michael! I am definitely looking into Cyberlink PhotoDirector 11. I do use the Photoshop CC subscription which I honestly love. Yet I don’t think I can get this effect. Hence, I will check your editing program out! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What a sweet face!
