Step 1: Open Photo in Pixlr
Step 2: Adjust Brightness and Contrast
Step 3: Adjust Hue and Saturation
Step 4: "Dodge" in the Highlights
Select the “Dodge” tool from the Tool bar on the left.
At the top of Pixler you will adjust you brush to the appropriate size for the area you will be working with.
You will need to play around with the range and the exposure setting until you get the desired effect. Each photo is going to be different.
The eyes are first. You will want to lighten the white part of the eye as well as lighten the colored part of the eye. For this look you can make a dark rim and a dark pupil. you can also remove the colored part of the eye altogether using the "Paintbrush" tool.
Repeat this on the teeth as well.
You may want to zoom in on the area you are working to ensure accuracy. To do this use the “Zoom In” function in the “Veiw” menu.
Step 5: "Burn" in the Gorey Details
Set the “Range” to shadows and keep the “Exposure” below 10.
You will have to go over the photo several times to get the effect shown here.
This takes practice and patience. Use deliberate strokes and don’t overdo it.
Step 6: Finishing Up
This just goes to show that you can get great results using this free editor.
