    Help!! Please :)

    I need to send in a headshot for the newspaper I work for by tomorrow, and I don't have time to take a picture.. (lol) So I found one on my computer from a few months ago I took on with my webcam.. I was wondering if someone really good with PS or LR or any editing program can make this look decent enough to send in.. I can't get my LR to work.. (not that I know what I am doing with it) but now it won't even open.. yikes.. THANKS so much!!! If anyone could do this for me, I would be very grateful!! (It doesn't have to be a stunning portrait, it's only going to be a very small picture under my story.. it just has to be a bit sharper I think )

    Help!! Please :)

    Shoemakers and photographers...

    It is sad but true, shoemakers kids never have shoes and photographers never have pictures of themselves... Anyway, I am pretty sure about the photographers part of that statement!

    What is wrong with your Avatar shot? There is far more 'connect' with that one

    I didn't think it would work for a newspaper because my hair is across my face. I am not good at getting my photo taken when I have to "pose". I always look "stiff" lol.

    I think it depends on what sort of effect you want, Shannon.

    Your avatar photo has something of a sensual appearance while the image in this post is more of a very straight 'passport' type of photo.

    But I don't pose for photos either.

    LOL, Ya it's not fun to pose for photos.. I prefer the avatar photo as well, I figured a "passport" type photo was better for a newspaper, sort of straight forward...no smiling.. etc. I might have to think about getting another photo for the next edition..
