Kristen in Chocolate

Click on any image for a bigger view.

I should say... Kristen in a Chocolate filter. lol!
I think we may have touched on this before but lets touch on it again. Chocolate filters are all the rage! You can make your own.

new layer above your image.
here is the hex code for the brown I like to use. 3f2co2
fill blank layer with brown. change your blend mode to soft light.
reduce the opacity until you like the effect.
Done! :)

This can also be used on color images. Interesting results.
I do hope you give it a try.

Happy Weekend

Ahhh Susan, you know me well!!

If you scroll down to my post titled Brushes, I have a print that I made for my daughters room out of those brushes. I actually made 3 prints that go together. There was talk that she was going to stop making them available. I have all of both sets.
And I have a list of brush names with some of my favs that I refer back to often when I need something specific for a kreation. :)

So... get them all while you can!!

Hey Kimi,

Well, I should have known...,!!

Thanks for the alert; I will get them all, rather than just a couple by previews.

Hi Kimi,

What a gorgeous picture of your daughter Kristen. I just wanted to tell you about the Virtual Photgrapher filters I found on http://www.optikvervelabs.com/. They are free and they work really great. They even have one called Brownie (under the B&W section that gives the photo a chocolate filter and you can change the settings too. I was amazed this was free, so I jumped on it. Take care Kimi! :)

Hugs,
Jonni

Kimi,

I am glad you liked them. Your blog is so amazing and you are so inspiring. I loved the pic you did of Kristen with the fairy dust. I found the tutorial online and now I can create fairy dust and I am so excited! :)

Thanks for the great ideas.

hugs,
Jonni

Kim,

I shared you chocolate filter on my blog today:

www.WeeklyPhotoTips.com

There are two links leading back to your blog, and (of course) I gave you full credit for the filter.

Thanks,

Scott

What is a hex code and how does it work. I love the effect and really want to try it.

If you open the color picker...
there is a box on the bottom with the # sign in front if it. Just type the code in there. :)

Thanks for being so generous with your Photoshop knowledge! I just tried the chocolate filter on some of my kids' pics and it's gorgeous! Thanks for the great tip!
