     Here is something that we might be able to use for our doll pictures.  ;)

     The pictures below were done to cast actors and actresses as Dresden Files characters. Griffyn612 at the Jim Butcher Forum used an online program called "Sketch" at http://photofunia.com/effects/sketch to make these pictures.
Sketch - This online photo effect will instantly turn your photo into a pencil drawing. Note: This is an online program only. None of the "Download" links will download the program - they are all advertisements for other stuff.

 "What if Gmail (over 400 million users) started deleting accounts and didn't respond to users asking why? Is this the future of how social media platforms deal with people? Must these internet companies become massive Goliaths that can crush us without any recourse or explanation?"

There's no "what if." They've been doing this for a long time.

So since Instagram never bothered to defend themselves the moral of the story is don't use Instagram.

     This is a somewhat involved process, but the end result is that you will have access to videos showing what to do with these presets. I do not have Lightroom myself, so I cannot vouch for the program or these presets. See also: Lightroom Killer Tips. This website also has free presets.

I'm so happy I found this thread and the 'Studio Lighting' thread.

I've had some problems with my camera's flash washing out and making Ethan look too shiny in many of his photo's.
 
I plan to try out the flash diffuser techniques found in the first posts before I go the route of using different lights all together.

mandingo1,

     If you are using Internet Explorer, click on "Favorites" up in the menu section. You will get a drop-down list asking where you want to put the bookmark.

     If you are using Google Chrome, click on the three vertical dots in the upper right-hand corner. This will open a menu. Hover your mouse cursor on "Bookmarks" and another menu will appear. You should see "Bookmark this page ...". Click on that and it should ask where you want to store the bookmark. <CTRL> D is the keyboard shortcut. Other browsers may have similar methods.
