Would you mind showing us how you edit your Adventures of Aurora photos? Do you use reshade? The photos and editing is AMAZING i'm in love <3

🍁 How I edit “The Adventures of Aurora” 🍁

All righty! I think this is will be relatively simple, but if you don’t understand something feel free to send me a message! You will need Photoshop to follow this! Let’s begin, shall we?

1. Reshade 

I do use Reshade! I have found this stunning preset by @simemi and it is amazing, it makes everything look brighter and more vivid! It’s a must-have, really!

2. Topaz Clean 

I use and abuse Topaz Clean, it is one of my favorite things in Photoshop. You can download Topaz Clean here. I use it with the following settings:

3. Curves

All right! First off, I highly recommend you check this amazing post on curves by @bratsims  it taught me everything I know about curves!

I have two sets of curves I use, the one I use for all my screenshots of Aurora:

And the one I use on top of that first set if the picture isn’t bright enough for my liking:

If the picture still doesn’t quite look like I want it to look like, I go to Image>Adjustements>Brigthness/Contrast and adjust those two until I like what I see!

4. Blur & Layer Mask’s

Once again I am going to have to mention one of @bratsims tutorials, please check this one right over here

Essentially, what you want to do is:

  1. Duplicate your layer;
  2. On the duplicate go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur> and set it to something in between 1 and 2 pixels. 1.5 is a solid middle but sometimes I do 2 as well! Just adjust it to your liking; 
  3. On the bottom right corner next to fx there is this tiny square, click on that to add a layer mask;
  4. Then, using the brush tool, you will “delete the blur” on the things/sims that you don’t want to be “blurred out”.

Again, please check the tutorial I linked above, it has pictures which makes it is much easier to follow if you’re new to layer masks and/or how they work.

5. Cropping 

When all of this is done, I select the crop tool and insert the following ratio: 1366 x 700. And that’s it! Hope this helped 😊💓

*planning my next drawing*

“Hum I really need to draw another couple that it’s not hinny.”

“Oh hey i’m drawing a beard”

“Why has this character a scar on his cheek”

“Why has this one freckles on the cheek”

“Hum what if I just change his manbun… WOW the girl now has a pixie that’s cool but”

“Why am I drawing a scar on the forehead now”

“Please control yourself”

“This is not supposed to be hinny”

“Not again”

“Not Hinny”

It’s Hinny.

how do i love myself

Eat what you want to eat. Drink what you want to drink. Listen to some good songs and dance to them. Do what makes you feel good. Remember, you are not the bad thoughts you have about yourself. You are not the flaws that you see on the mirror, that you see in yourself. You are what keeps you going each day and you need to embrace that. Embrace everything about you. You are amazing. You are beautiful. You are you, and that is love.

You have no clue how hard I try not to text you, or call you, or look at your pictures. You were once part of my routine but now that you’re gone, it feels like a part of me is gone now, too.
