Pop Art your photos!

Hello all!
 
Part of the charm and beauty of Willemstad, Curaçao are its lovely, colorful buildings!  On my second trip there, I was so excited to capture a panoramic photo of these buildings…  However, the pictures that I took for the panoramic did not turn out as well as I had hoped!  Original panoramic:
 
 
I was able to save this photo by applying the Pop Art technique with the Windows Live Photo Gallery editing tools.  With Pop Art, I was able to make the buildings practically glow!  The result of Pop Art:
 
 
I applied the settings below with Windows Live Photo Gallery to get the Pop Art effect:
 
 
 
 
 
To create Pop Art within Windows Live Photo Gallery, apply the following to your photos:
 
Under Adjust color: 
 
  • Slide the Saturation bar all the way to the right.  You may adjust Color temperature and/or Tint as well.

Under Adjust exposure:

  • Slide the Brightness bar a little to the left
  • Slide the Contrast, Shadows, and Highlights bars all the way to the right.

You can always click on the  button to undo changes which you do not like.

Give Pop Art a try!

Windows Live Photo Gallery is a great program by Microsoft which you can download for free at download.live.com/photogallery!

Enjoy!
