I have always been good at using Adobe Photoshop to good effect; (There are some good tips about doing this on Photoshop TV from NAPP), using the vector masks and channels, but heres what seems like some software that is designed for the job...
The camera never lies, or so they say.

But luckily for the less than picture-perfect among us, computer software can.


Before and After

While digital enhancement has been around for years, subtly airbrushing celebrities and models to make them a bit thinner, less spotty or better endowed, the mere mortal has been resigned to, well, looking like a mere mortal.

But new advances in digital enhancement software may mean dodgy snaps could soon be relegated to the photo album of the past.

Last week, New Scientist magazine reported on new technology that had been developed by scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel.

Presented at this year's Siggraph conference on computer graphics in Boston, the system transforms photographs of faces into more attractive versions of themselves.

The software, developed by Tommer Leyvand, built on work published in 2005.

I agree, but thats not what I'd do, I stole it from  the BBC Article I stole the Post From

I think they have overdone the gaussian blur technique! I am getting quite good at the skills involved in that kind of editing; I did some for a university prospectus, it is quite a complex job but not hard.

If that image is created by this "new" software, I know you can do alot better in Photoshop...

You couldnt print that anyway, the womans too ugly and it looks looks overdone...

What would that be?

...And in what context have you posted it?   Its just your average stock photo.
Great Campaigns you've worked on there, Geehumshriber, I know a photographer who works in the advertising industry, as well as my dad who is a photographer, and there is big money in advertising, they go the the extent of laying new tarmac on a headland to sit a nice new car on, and have scaffholding up with thousands of pounds worth of lighting equipment on them... Maybe you could help us with a campaign

Wow, that would be great, how would you go about a budget (econmoical) ad campaign, what forms of ads (not online) are suitable for advertising a website like this? We know the target audience, and have done alot of research, but where and what format of advertising?

you mean for this website?
well am not sure about your market, but i'd suggest an IT related magazine, maybe Virgin Mega store magazine (you know the one they distribute at virgin megastore) a full page ad, or an insert in the magazine, a flyer maybe. if you have a bigger budget you might want to go for some table top items in some net cafés? like danglers or tent cards. you can suggest a tie up campaign with a net café where you can offer clients a free subscribtion?

hope that helps.

We were kind of thinking of that, we will look in to that kind of thing! Any more innovative ideas like that?

it is difficult for me, because there are very few website advertising offline in this part of the world.

try looking at what other communities did, that always helps, and i'll think of something and get back to u
