Scribble This!: Week 2!


For this second challenge in the Scribble This! series, learn how to get rid of the grey blahs in your photos by adjusting the levels!  Here’s how to enter the challenge:

  1. First, read this tutorial on adjusting levels.
  2. Next, create a card with at least a bit of white in it — you’ll need a bit of white so that you can adjust the levels correctly.  The rest of the colors + theme are all up to you!  Post a picture before you adjust the levels and again after.  Write about any interesting things you discover!
  3. Leave a link below to the post with your card — be sure not to link to your whole blog.

  4. This is a great tutorial! Do you have any suggestions for adjusting the levels if there is no white in the card pictured?  What if it has vanilla or light pink or some other pastel color?

    1. Hi Marisa, if you still have the card, you can take a photo of it with something white to work with next to it, and then crop it out later. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for future tutorials for other things you can try. Hope that helps!

  5. Hi Lisa,
    Thank you so much for this awesome tutorial!  I’ve always been intimidated by PS and your easy-to-follow directions made it oh-so-simple for me to get rid of the ugly grey blahs in my photos!   Here are my before-and-after photos:  The results were STUNNING!  Can’t wait to try more of your tutorials!
