Playing with FX Studio Pro

vintage rose

Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

I haven’t posted for a couple of days as I have been trying to restore 300 GBs of photos from Time Machine onto a hard drive.  It has taken a couple of days but I have managed it.  I felt lost without these photos.  My husband needs some photos so I am searching for them but so far no luck.  Anyway it is all done and I feel whole again.  It did take all night to update all the thumbnails so now I can see again.  Ah the joys of computers.

Anyway I spent some time last night just playing abound with FX Studio Pro.  I just tried out the different filters.  I was inspired by‘s post yesterday. I thought her images were amazing. I was also interested in the     Photography 101: Your Workflow, Part I    by The Daily Post.

These two are obviously the same image.  The one on the right was edited again in Photoshop for the colour.

Some more roses.  Again I edited the right one in Photoshop to bring out the leaves a bit more.

For these two I wanted a more dramatic feel to them, accentuating the pattern of the leaves.

I tried to keep the orange colours of these images.  But with the right image I added a little rainbow affect.

For these two images I gave them colours that wouldn’t occur in real life.  The image on the right has a rainbow filter on a diagonal to go with the pattern on the water while the one on the right has been solarised so that the green has turned purple while retaining the red leaves.

Glowing rose

Finally a glowing rose which I just really added a vignette to get rid of unwanted background.

It is soooo much fun playing around with images.  It can take an average photo and turn it into something amazing.

So have fun with editing.

  1. Damn, 300 gigs of photos?

    But yeah, playing around with filters and blending layers is pretty fun. The results are normally unpredictable and sometimes take you by surprise, in a good way. Quite a few good ones you’ve got there. The “night vision leaves” picture is super cool.


  2. Thank you for the lovely mention Raewyn…much appreciated hun. 🙂 Sounds like you’ve had a scare with the photographs. I’d be just the same, and wouldn’t be able to rest until I’d sorted it.
    Your pics here are lovely, I think the one with the leaves in green and blue are the most startling, but I also really like the depth of field in the last glowing rose pic.
    Have a great weekend 🙂


    1. Such a relief to be able to go through my photos again. I had to dig into Time Machine as I had deleted them from my computer. Then I restored them to my folders and then shifted them to the hard drive that I had to get just for my photos. 2 days worth. Don’t put it off. A 3 TB drive should be a good starting point. My Aperture stopped working due to the heavy load as well. IPhoto seems to be going at the moment.
      Have a nice days 😀


      1. What a nightmare for you! I currently keep all my aperture library on an external hard drive, but all of my folders containing the pictures for both my websites are on the mac, perhaps i should move them too!

        The memory is struggling a bit lately i think too, the screen keeps freezing up due to all the processing going on. That last sentence could equally apply to myself LOL
