This is what passes for photoediting on the Charley Project

I freely admit that I have no skills whatsoever in graphic design, or in art in any form. Nor do I have any appreciation for the same. But in my capacity as sole owner-operator of Charley, I often edit the photos of missing people. Usually this consists of messing with the lighting and contrast, but sometimes I go further and paint out scratches or fix red-eye or whatever. I have noticed with some pleasure that certain law enforcement agencies have taken to using my edited photographs on their own sites.

Anyway, an example of some of my most advanced editing techniques: presenting a photo of Joseph Patrick Martin with a ghastly dark streak down the front. Now, here is my edited version of the same. And here is a closeup of the edited photo just to demonstrate how crude my techniques really are.

    As long as you get credit, dahling :). I never knew you did that. BTW, had enough on the Nancy Grace case? Noticed the closed comments.

    Better than most, at least you care.

    I had no idea you did this either. My other halfs a dab hand at stuff like this. Quite impressive I’ve always thought.
