Snapshot_068.thumb.png.11a78601e52d2e50c5c578af5fffb4ef.pngI wanna know how to make my pics look more 'real'... disclaimer I don't have photoshop

just started playing around w/ gimp

I will sometimes use my Lumipro if I'm really getting into a pic..That and playing with windlight settings and maybe some viewer filters at times depending..

A lot of times you can get a nice shot just with the viewer tools alone.. I guess it just depends on how far you want to go..

You can make some nice lighting tools and masks in world that will throw in some nice effects.. But lumipro is a nice in world tool that is kind of a one stop shop for an in world tool of tools for lighting..

I'm in their in world group and the pics the people put up in there every day are just amazing..

 

Anyways just figured  you may want to know about this as well if you didn't already..It's a bit costly that first time..I think I paid like 6k for mine,but it's a one time cost and lifetime updates.. I've had mine since 2012 I think and I'm on lumipro18 now since they just updated it again this year..

They've pretty much updated it each year..

 

Aaaanyways..here is an example of it and some of what you can do.. :)

You don't?  Some might be disappointed to hear this :P 

Cindy, just ponder the size and weight of a melon for a moment (even a smallish one). Now ponder a second one beside it. Now ponder how bloody painful that would be! O.o:P

I shopped for my husbands Avatar a couple weeks back and I feel for you guys  and the size of the market you have.. I was ripping my hair out hehehe

I was all over the grid and taking forever and a day just to find some nice jeans and shirts.. The options run out quick,at least for me they did..

Your blog was a big help I have to say :)

Glad to be of help, Ceka. Your husband would be fine if he only wants to wear sweatpants, sweatshorts, hoodies, sneakers, sportswear, and snapbacks, because that's much of what's available these days ¬¬ My blog isn't as active as my Flickr (mainly because I like to gab about what I'm wearing on the blog, and that takes time and brainpower; both of which I often don't have much of left after a day at work) but Flickr just needs a good pic and a credits list. So, if in doubt; check Flickr!

I agree with this. Personally, I like to take "clean" screenshots from SL and do it all in Post. It's not free, but the tools from ON 1 (https://www.on1.com) - are amazing, no photoshop necessary. Don't let the price of Photo RAW scare you, the tool that I'm referring to is "Photo Effects" (https://www.on1.com/products/effects/) - the free trial is worth a go.

Seconding ON1. I used the free version extensively for a long time, and then I got an offer to buy the full version of ON1 Photo 10 for a ridiculously low price. I now use it on all of my images. It does work your GPU hard, especially if you assign the heavy lifting to it, and I've found that I prefer the images in Photoshop format (so I do use Photoshop to open the PSD files and re-save them as either JPG or PNG) but it's worth trying the free version, and paying for it if you get a cheap offer like I did.

I have seen some of those guys around SL. Standing to attention and definite size and skin matching issues all around 

BTW I loved your sweatpants blog post. ♥

I was messing with some expressions I put together in a hud last night and decided to take some shots..

These are with lumipro, The No light setting on windlight, and stock filters in the windows 10 picture viewer..

A little tip regarding Alaskametro: for practically every makeup item in her store she also has a free wearable tester available in a single shade. No 'demo 'markings or anything like that; just a great way to increase your makeup collection, absolutely free. Just go to her Marketplace store and put 'tester' into the search bar (already done that for you at this link). They usually come in Catwa and Lelutka appliers, with some Omega appliers, and even classic system tattoos.

Griefer is still there. I have cleaned, blocked and reported. It is nearly week now and i cant finish my work there - all is so laggy.

So..I dance, in slow motion but still, despite all.

Visiting the Dubai Event. For those who's interested in cars, there is a free black luxury car. :)

https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Horizon Beach/50/199/22

The car is from Billionaire Motors.   If you pop to their inworld location, they give out a free car roughly every month - no Group join needed.  Here's the LM to the latest one:

Alaskametro is awesome -- one of the few places that still does makeup on the system tattoo layer and my inventory contains all of those MP freebies in addition to a few of inworld purchases.  I return to the MP every few weeks to see if there is any new 'tester'.

I saw you there for a moment before my internet went kerput.

 

oh, is that what happened? I was wondering why you weren't very talkative. It happens to all of us, I know.

Splurged a bit (ok a lot) on the malt. The shape still needs tweaking but I'm liking where this is heading.

Hair is at Rama for Sat Sale. With the resize script and moving it slightly, I was able to get it to fit on my mesh head.

Trying out how Vista's Zhoe Zoe full bento AO works with Genus head.
General observation, some animations look ok, some don't. So, I think it's better to wait till GenusProject releases their own animations.

(Vista have also full bento dances with facial animations, they make the mouth rather awful looking. :S I don't like them even in Vista heads. No, no, please no! :o)

If you have a Mayreal hud,there are some nice ones in there..

I just pulled them out of the hud and put the ones I liked in my own hud..There are some nice smiles and, OMG!! the best wink I've ever seen in SL yet, Plus some others..

They have some that  are looped and some that are static..a lot of good static ones for pictures :)

 

ETA: The vista one I'm using is Zoe..I just use the the hud labeled as with faces off..Then you won't animate your face when dancing..You can still turn them on if you want..
