Default Re: first time editing...

by the contrast and saturation, she means the colors are tweaked too far......... its turning their faces yellow / orange...... the more contrast you add, the brighter the lightest spots on the photo show, like an eraser rubbed on a photo...

increase the brightness / contrast up a little at a time. be careful on picnik using tools with awkward coloring like ortonish, boost, vibrance, etc........... all tools on picnik are amazing tools when practiced over and over and you get the knack of it.............

I use two editing programs, one is picnik, and the other is a microsoft imaging program.... i find picnik easier to use for a lot of small fixes though...... keep at it after a year and a half of using the two programs together, here is my skill..... i attached a before / after of my work from photo taken to photo edited..... together and then separately to really separate the differences for you to see
