How to 'recycle' photographs

I have been getting brave, and using Photoshop for more than removing unflattering shadows across a smile that makes it look like the persons’ teeth are missing, or editing out copyrighted logos.

I have been using to to process and recreate images from not-quite-right photographs: ones that have a bit graininess, or a bit of noise, ones that are just a bit too fuzzy from camera not being held steady, or from getting jostled, and other such reasons.

I will make sure I don’t get sloppy and shrug off mistakes by thinking “I’ll revamp them in photoshop”, and keep the images sharp and colorful. But now I have an alternative to deleting images that are good, just not quite perfect.
