snow should be white.

recently i read somewhere online about adjusting a photo’s levels to make the whites, well, white.

this photo i took back at the beginning of the snowpocalypse.

isn’t it sadly gray? really really sadly gray.

but this… this is what snow should look like.

and i’m not one of those bloggers with tons of photoshop tutorials and handy-dandy screen shots of what i did, so i’ll try to explain it. (and i use gimp, anyway.) but in levels, when the whites in your photo are gray, you drag the white arrow (on the far right) over to where the histogram starts. if that makes sense. (a friend of mine mentioned you can do the same thing with the black to even out the look. i haven’t tried this yet – just starting to use gimp more.)

  1. over to where the histogram (the mountains on the graph) starts might be a better description. and do the same with the blacks on the other side to lvl out your over all color.
