iheartfaces – Fix-It Friday #48



image

Okay, officially, this is the first time I’m joining Fix-It Friday with CS4! I am playing around with Actions and am loving it! I can’t decide which one I like best and if I have the time, I’ll probably try each and every one!

Fix-It #1 – Took as much as the dark shadows away from under the eyes as possible, removed traces of snowflakes on hat and hair, Surface Blur, Smart Sharpen, Cropped, Curves + PW’s Colorize actionFix-It48



Fix-It #2 – All of the #1, except Colorize, + PW’s 70’s actionFix-It48-70s



Fix-It #3 – All of #2, except 70’s action, + PW’s Lovely & Ethereal actionFix-It48-LE



Fix-It #4 – All of #2, except 70’s action, + PW’s Soft & Faded actionFix-It48-SF



Fix-It #5 – All of #2, except 70’s action, + PW’s B&W action / adjusted opacityFix-It48-BWplus


Please tell me which one you like more… Me, I'm partial to the Colorize (Fix-It #1) and the Soft & Faded (Fix-It #4) actions. If you’d like to play around and join in the fun, please visit iheartfaces.

Nicejob! I like fix #2

Jen said...

I love number three and then four :)

Lula Lola said...

I really like #4. Her skin looks so creamy. Nice job! I've got to get some of those PW actions!

Lindy said...

I like #3. You did a really nice job on these!

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

HAAAA The colorized is the same one I used for mine! LOL Great choice!

Nakia said...

All of your edits are great, but I really like #2 & #3 the best.

I like number three. The photograph was great, but I love it lightened up and tweeked.
:)
Gotta love it!

Aunt LoLo said...

I like number 1!

Shelle said...

great edits...i like the 1, 2 & 4 edits too....i've always love the roses & cream portraits (at least that's what they remind me of)

Serline said...

I like #2 and #3 too. Have fun!

Rose Belle said...

#3 is my favorite. It's amazing what technology can do now. I see how magazines enhances their models pictures. Makes the eyes and skin tone look so much better.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I like three because her skin tone is really warm and the colors are brilliant. But, I also like 4 for the softness and how it blends.

You're doing great!

RM @ LMMP said...

Wow! Great job. And congrats on the CS4! It makes such a difference doesn't it!

Herb of Grace said...

I love that last one! :)

Nezzy said...

I'm smitten with pic #3. Great job girl!

Have a great day!!!

Tezzie said...

Lovely job! My fave's are 1&4...there's wonderful light without losing warmth or overdoing the saturation. Gotta go 'get me some action' installed ;D

tattytiara said...

#3. I love big bright colors.

Amy Henderson said...

#3 and #4 are my fav's, nicely done :)

Menopausal New Mom said...

Definitely prefer #4, just like a hi-def TV screen and gorgeous!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Caroline (Frogmum) said...

I think I'm going with soft and faded (#4) but they are all lovely :D

Big Mama Cass said...

I can't decide if I like #3 or #4 better. They are all awesome though!

jen@odbt said...

I'm impressed how quickly you picked up PS. Maybe you should post a tutorial :)

a Tonggu Momma said...

I love the third one...

Velvet Over Steel said...

Wow those are great! I like #3 the best... I think. I wish I knew how to do all that editing. That's what my middle son, the graphic designer is for now. HaHa... Hope you're having a Great weekend! Hugs, Coreen

Alicia said...

Wow! Those are all wonderful!!! I just love how clear her face looks!

katherine said...

These are all beautiful! Love them all!!

I think my favourite would have to be the first though, it's gorgeous.

to get bokeh...now don't quote me...but i just shoot into the light...if you check your background you should see sunlight hitting either grass or trees...whatever's back there...that will turn into bokeh when out of focus. a p&s will never get the same bokeh as a dsl.

how were you editing your photos before using the CS4?

Great edits!! I love them!!! I really like your crop and really all the actions you used turned out great.
