I took a bunch of pictures of my extended family last May, when we celebrated everyone’s birthdays together because we only convene once each year. Gifts galore were given and received, with more fun and less fanfare than during a certain well-worn holiday season that shows up every December.

We’ll use photos of my brother, mother, doggie, and brother-in-law during this exercise in improving family pictures taken indoors. The images have been cropped and gently enhanced. I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 2’s Levels adjustments to perform all edits, because Elements is a consumer application that many cross-platform readers can relate to. All changes could have been done using iPhoto, Aperture, or any recent version of Adobe Photoshop (Elements or professional), so YOU TOO can have great family photos.
