For 2.5 stars this week, I decided to do the Color Changer Assignment.

Take any picture in the entire world and change the color hue of the picture to completely change how it looks! Then post it on flickr to show the world!

I chose a photo from when I studied abroad in Germany, and visited the Black Forest during Spring/ Summer 2014.

In order to manipulate this photo, I opened it using the software Adobe Bridge. This is like the pre-cursor area to Adobe Photoshop, and I actually find it a little bit easier than Photoshop.. All of the changes you make in Bridge and Camera Raw are non-destructive, so you can save the photo as a new file, and have the original as well as the edited version!

After opening Camera Raw, I navigated to the hues tab, and changed the highlights to a pink hue, and the shadows to a blue hue.  I then adjusted the saturation of each to get the ending result! I love image editing, but I find that it takes FOREVER to get through all of the photos that I take.. It was a lot of fun to play around with the colors until I got something that looked pretty cool!
