How to edit your reference photos
As promised here is a short video showing how I use a free little photo editing programme to prep up my photos ahead of starting a portrait piece. This part shows how I use BeFunky to crop a pic, enhance the colours & convert to black & white. 

In the next part I will show you how I use it with my work in progress pics as a comparison guide to how my piece is progressing.

Hope it helps!
