    Today I was playing around with my camera phone and I actually managed to take a picture of myself that I really liked. This rarely ever happens! I was wondering if someone who is good with photoshop could perhaps make it look better?

    I am intending to use it as a profile picture on MySpace/FaceParty and the like.

    Thank you for any assistance,

    Shaun.

    These all look cool. my hair looks cool in the last one!

    However I was looking for something more recognisable? Do you think the original picture needs enhanced to hide anything etc? Lol. I'm paranoid :p.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    It's nice and all that but the effect seems a bit 'heavy' i.e. too much. I was thinking of something more simplistic.

    I don't think you should change anything in the photo really, apart from stylising it a bit if you want to. You look fit! Get yer photo out there. :)

    AUUGHH PHOTOSHOP FILTERS MAKE GRAPHIC ARTISTS WANT TO KILL THEMSELVES AND EVERYONE AROUND THEM.

    Just leave it alone. It's a MySpace picture. You don't need to change it to show the world that you're another teenager who can select a few menu options and drag a few sliders in Photoshop.

    If you really want to edit it, edit the color balance, curves, and brightness/contrast, to give the lighting and colours a different feel. Don't go around messing about with crosshatch filters and the like. :rolleyes:
