Thank you!

But how about that goddamned red dress, eh????

Lovely pic, and I don't see anything wrong with the necklace!

I haven't tried layering Windlights. In fact, I have no idea how to do it . . . any idea where I can find some guidance?

To improve your PS skills check out https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdf6WtVkThVyEFARiUbr5yQ and Natsumi Xenga

@Scylla Rhiadra : What I do is shoot multiple photo of your avi with differing WL settings. Import all into PS as various layers, for ex: 3 layers.... then blend in the various WL layers through erasing various top layers at various opacities, to arrive at something unique. I did that technique in a post last Fall lying in front of a red car. I’ll repost it FYI.

I was going to do all sorts of clever things in PS with this pic, but decided that I liked it pretty much exactly as it was too much. This has been cropped: otherwise (rarely for me!), it's a raw take on the subject.

I see other people have answered you on this one with good advice. I like the YouTube videos by Daeberethwen Arbenlow. She has a lot of SL specific PS videos. I have learned a ton from them as a PS novice. And her name is awesome. Lol

Regarding the WL question : This was a good example of three shots with varying WL settings morphed into a final composition. Each photo 1-3 layers in PS using the technique I outlined in my previous post. I will say that using a pose is critical so the framing is exact for every shot. Thanks Scylla for the question and giving me an excuse to repost! ;)

@AidySL This is a terrific picture of you. I did a slight "remix" for fun using several B&W lighting textures into this composite and you look fantastic in B&W as well. Excellent post. Welcome to the thread :) ~ S

A bit off topic, but I had to share this photo with you all. When I was commenting about @Skell Dagger posts and his realism and fine art look, I came across this RL photo from Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk. Obviously post processed in PS, but this picture reminded me so much of Skells' last post. This is a real photo taken and processed to resemble the Dutch masters paintings. Wow, she is amazing and obviously upset about being forced to wear that Shakespearian collar ;)

This is another pic from the courtyard at Yúcale, but here, inspired by Sara, I've played with it a bit.

The deeper one gets into using the combination of phototools (and Windlights) in-world, and post-processing options in PS, the more one feels a bit overwhelmed by the sheer number of options . . .

So there's me taking a break from doing photos, just chillin, and working on my Inventory, and doing well with it by the way...….

And then Scylla posts that Red Dress poem......so I had to respond, and dig out my PVC hooker dress. I tried Soho and I tried Amsterdam, but I couldn't get the right atmosphere. I knew Lutz would deliver, so there I went. I stayed in the bar because it's got such style...………...and then I tried some filter work, which I don't usually do.

So the following images each have a simple filter applied, no cropping, and with just a whiff of windlight, because they are indoors...……

Except the last one which is outside in moonlight :)

I do a red dress "as intended" hehe!

Girl, you've completely out-red-dressed me!

I think, if I remember correctly, that I actually bought my red dress in response to one that you showed off here!
