Lighten a Background

Design by Susan Cyrus

Susan added impact to already stellar photos by using level adjustments to lighten the backgrounds in this digital layout, leaving the focus squarely on her son's new friend. This technique works most effectively on photographs that already have a fairly light background. Use the Eraser tool to clean up the transition between the subject and the new background.
