I don’t even remember when I purchased Filter Forge®, the popular third-party companion to PhotoShop® that lets you apply fancy filters to your photos. It was long ago, maybe 2008 or 2009. Anyway, I don’t even use PhotoShop anymore as my laptop has no CD/DVD drive to allow me to install it. With materials, shadows, mesh bodies, and all the other controls we have over our raw shots, there’s no real need for PhotoShop either, except for the super fancy portraits with painted hair and so on. I still use Filter Forge from time to time for the fun of it. I just open photos directly in the software. Anyway, it’s 80% off today so I thought I would play with it and let you all know that it’s deeply discounted. Please note, that is an ordinary link with no clever code that gives me some compensation for promoting their software. I just have the basic package, the cheapest one, and it has everything I need. I don’t need to do pictures bigger than 3000 by 3000, so it’s enough for me. The filter I am using today is Retro Imaging. All the filters are free, you only buy the software. Update: By the way, don’t get stressed by the discount ending today. They run a deep discount several times a year, so if you don’t do it today, you will get another chance in the next few months.
I am wearing an adorable dress and jacket from Decoy. It has a color change HUD with all sorts of options in prints and solids for the dress and matching solid colors for the jacket. The prints are inspired by Collabor88’s Greenery theme and if you get the big pack, there are some exclusive very bright, bold saturated color prints as well. That was not my mood this morning when I was snapping pictures so I went for the pastels, dreamy prints, probably because it was 3 AM and I was taking pics before I went to sleep.
I opted for the delicate and feminine sandals from fri.day in the Collabor88 Greenery colors. The are a perfect match with the jacket.
I picked up another backdrop from RAMA at Gacha Gardens. OMG! I tried so hard and so long to get that art gallery wall before I just gave up. I have gifted backdrops to many friends because I think I got ten of of some of them. This is one of the free backdrops you get for playing that gacha too much. I really like that they are materials savvy backdrops.
My hair is from D!va for Collabor88. I love updos. Really, there’s never enough updos and short hair cuts that show off your jewelry.
Speaking of jewelry, Yummy has fun greenery inspired jewelry at Collabor88. I love the restraint of the necklace when contrasted with the over-the-top exuberance of the earrings. Balance, it’s what makes this perfect.
Glam Affair released this Agnes skin. I like the skin, the eye shadows and lip colors are bold, but I use my Lelutka HUD to tone them down a bit to suit the pastels in the outfit.
