My First Attempt

So, I have no money, but my mother's birthday is coming up and I wanted to do something special for her. Since I worked on a scrapbook a few months ago, I have all of her childhood pictures scanned in. My thought was to tint some black and white photos to make a nice collage of pictures. So I tried my hand at tinting today -- not terrible, but not great either. I have to use Picture It! 10 for this because I don't own Photoshop, but I don't think it turned out that bad:

AFTER:



If anyone has any tips (besides go and buy Photoshop) I'm all ears.

Thanks! I'm still a little iffy about how white the whole ocean is, but I think I might have a way to fix that.

I prefer Paint.net (also free). The photo did come out lovely!

PhotoElements may be option for you. It is a scaled down version. http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelwin/
