Photoshop yourself beautiful with online tutorials

Most of us like to make the most of ourselves, whether it’s the full works with the make-up and a new dress for a big night out, or simply finding time to put on a slick of lippy for the school run. Yet when you think how many people may see your photograph online with a profile pic for example, it’s amazing how little time we take to look good in a photo.

Alright you don’t want to go over the top as a friend of mine recently did when she had a professional makeover with studio shots and plastered the results all over her Facebook entry. The results were certainly stunning but it didn’t actually look a lot like her, to the bemusement of many. However a little bit of help and photoshop trickery could go a long way to helping most of us out.

An article by Sarah Kessler over on Mashable gives 8 very clever Photoshop tutorials that can help with those smaller problems and the results can really be very impressive indeed. For example it’s amazing what even a slight change in hair color can do for somebody.
