Hi Mike

As I said, this is a lovely capture and all I tried to do with this workshop was to bring out some spark in the colour tones. Thanks for allowing workshops to be posted.

Post processing optimisation:
1. "Levels" adjustment on the "Histogram" by decreasing the "White" slider until it moved slightly into the graph (at 210), increasing the "Black" slider until it moved slightly into the graph (at 38), and balancing the "Mid-tones" slider to darken the image (at 0.97).
2. "Contrast" +9.
3. "Brightness" +7.
4. "Saturation" -6.
5. Added "Warming Filter (85)" at 25% "Density".
6. Added "Magenta" with "Variations" and the slider set to "Fine".
7. Selected the cheetah with the "Magic Wand" and "Lasso" tools.
8. Adjusted "USM" at 95% amount, 0.3 radius, and 0.0 threshold.
9. Selected the top half of the photo (just below the bottom line of the road and excluding the cheetah's head) with the "Magic Wand" and "Lasso" tools.
10. Applied "Gaussian Blur" at 0.6 radius.
11. Deselected all, selected "Save for Web", and adjusted the "Quality" upwards to 195kB.

Unfortunately I made no notes while I did the optimisation and had to retrace my steps after saving the image, so the above values should be seen as approximate settings.

I see you used Photoshop Elements 5.0 and I used Photoshop CS2, but I think you should be able to reproduce most of the steps set out above.

I hope you like the result.

Best regards
Loot
