Playing with Pictures

A few pics I played around with . . .

My dog isn't the best at posing. But I try!  She makes me smile
I took this one on July 4th weekend.  I edited on Pic Monkey by using the 'Frosty' edge option.  I would like to try taking her pic here again without the leash.  I'll have to get Cowboy to go with us to help.

Next I tried a different option.  Check this out!
I love the sparkles. It really looks like rays coming off the crown! Perfect for the crown photo!
It's hard to see but the tie around her neck is just a strip of fabric it had hearts on it. 
I had used it to tie my hair up.  This shot was taken at the end of the evening when my Cowboy and I serve a Valentines Dinner to our daughter and grandson. 
In this shot she was recently groomed.  Really, really short.

This next one is probably my favorite . . .
I used Pic Monkey again on this one and did the edges dark. 
I like the way the lighting came through the window.
Here she is shaggy again.  This was just before she was groomed.
She looks peaceful but she is actually pouting.  I was decorating the Christmas tree,  I had told her to stay on the tile in the entry way.  She snuck over to this hide that was laying on the floor.
I had used the hides on the mantel for fall.  

So have you tried Pic Monkey.  It is simple to use.  I only used the free option but you can do more if purchase the upgrade.

Thanks for joining in with us this month! What an adorable looking dog! I think that editing photos is part of the fun in photography. PicMonkey provides a great service, and I have used it on occasion for some of the special effects because it is so easy and quick.

I love your photos, and I think the crown is well deserved! Thank you for popping over to take a look at my pets and my blog ( I am now a follower and will be back often to visit. Picmonkey is the only editing software that I am familiar with. I upgraded their features and I have a lot of fun with it, but I still have so much to learn! xo Jackie (Dazee)

Hi Sherry,

I like the picture with the hide best.
I'll have to try pic monkey.
Are they new..I've never heard of them.

bj said...

I use PicMonkey, too. There's several editing programs on the net that I use, too.
Love all your photos here.

I agree with you ... I love the last one. And I do know that pouty face. I have a few pictures of Izzi in the same state of mind. Your dog is beautiful ... I love her coloring and many expressions.

Dogs are so much fun for their owners to photograph - sometimes I feel I need to get one too!

Lovely - thanks for sharing with us.

Debby Ray said...

Aww...what a sweet doggie...great captures! They really can be hard to photograph but you have done a wonderful job!

Vee said...

Had to chuckle at the sneaky dog trick. I might be lying down, but I'm over here and not where you said. I wonder if you know my friend Leann. She's a CHRISTMAS keeper, too.
