      with beamless argil I meant, that the colours aren’t so loud, but they look like sad and grew.

      I hope you now know what I mean.
      I looked these words up in Leo Dictonary, because I’m german.
      But now I know how you do it…
      to desaturate. (looked it up in LEO. too! :D)

      Oh ok. Well actually I didn’t really change a whole lot on these photos. It was a really couldy day so the weather pretty much did everything for me. I probably if anything played around with the Curves, that’s what I normally do. Hope that helped.

      Curves in GIMP are usually under colors. It’s kind of like a Brightness and Contrast all rolled up to one thing. Aw thank you, that’s really nice of you.

    Cool pictures! Really like the jacket too! How did you get the you clone? I’d like one for me so I can send it off to work and then I can do fun stuff :-)

      Thank you. I had two pictures of me. In photoshop or gimp you can use the anchor pen and select the area you want to copy. Once you’ve done that you copy it and then paste it on the other photo. You can move it around to the place you want it and BAM…you’re done. :)

      Awwww… and there I was thinking you’d found a way to actually clone yourself in real life – disappointing… I’ll have to wait a bit longer to give up work :-(
