iheartfaces – Fix-It Friday # 55



Since I started playing around with Photoshop this March, I've looked forward to I Heart Faces' Fix-It Fridays every week. I can't begin to tell you how much I have learned from participating in this exercise every week. It's great to see the contributors' edits and their step-by-step guide in how they did them. It's equally wonderful to see how the other participants do their fixes as well.

This week, we get to work on this photo of this cutie-patootie. Here is the original photo.

Here are my edits:

FIx-It #1: Basic Edit. Cropped, slight tilt. Sharpened. Adjusted levels, curves, hue & saturation. Applied surface blur. Worked on areas around the chin and under the eyes with the eyedropper tool and brush.FIx-It1 (Basic)


Fix-It #2: PW’s Lovely & Ethereal action Fix-It4(LovelyandEthereal)

Fix-It #3: Bit of BW FIx-It5 (LandEwithBW)


Fix #4: Bit of BW, with PW’s 70s action applied, but with opacity adjusted down.FIx-It6(LandEwithBW 70s)


Fix-It #5: Seventies, with more color Fix-It3 (Seventies)

I love it! Each picture shows something different! I can get lost in time editing - but they'd never find me if I had your program!

Alicia said...

Those are great, but my favorite is #4!!

Jen said...

Aaaaw. She's so cute I don't think it's possible to take a bad photo or make a bad edit. Or is it because you've gotten so good it just seems that way? I should learn to edit. I usually take 30 different shots from 10 different angles and pick my favorite.
