Tomato Photo Recipe

Here are the steps, (not in order) that I did to create the finished photo.

Before:  As shot with my Sony A 200, underexposed by one f-stop.


  • Straighten
  • Crop
  • Adjust levels and color
  • Adjust sharpness
  • Apply Corel's "Early Color" photo effect
  • Reduce saturation of parts of the background and foreground
  • Fill bottom right corner using clone tool
  • Apply Corel's "Albumen Photo Frame" effect
  • Clean up a few distracting spots
It's not a lot of steps but it took a fairly long time because I try out several degrees of adjustment each step of the way.  
I'm planning on creating some cards from some of my shots.  This one is a candidate, no doubt.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and will post it on my Flickr page in the Corel group as well.
