{I Heart Faces | Fix it Friday}

This is my second attempt at I Heart Faces Fix it Friday.

This is not my photo, they provide you with a photo every Friday and you get to edit it any way that you want.  It's fun and you get to sharpen your editing skills.

All of my edits were done with Photoshop Elements 8.

Here is the SOOC (straight out of camera) image that they gave us to work with:

This is my first edit:
For this edit I opened up the photo in Camera Raw.  I moved the temp to -18, tint -48, exposure +10, brightness +25, clarity +15.  Everything else was unadjusted.  I also adjusted the white balance and cropped and tilted the image in Camera Raw.
In Photoshop Elements I ussed Everyday Element's action called Diffuse Hot Spots and Paint the Moon's Jubilee Action.  I also used My 4 Hens color pop on her CUTE pj's and eye sharpening for her eyes.

Here is my second edit, I decided to do a black & white, too:

For this image, I used My 4 Hen's Lilac B&W action (love that action!)

Thank you so much for looking!


  1. Very nice! I'm loving the black and white. I did a b&w edit too. I'll have to check out the 4 Hen's action. Never heard of it!

  2. Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog =) Have fun with the Florabella actions! I LOVE thier B&W ones too =) Your edits today are beautiful! Love the sparkle in her eyes!

  3. Love your edits and your work (found it through iheartfaces). Both are great, but I especially love your first edit. You were able to give it a "soft" look without losing any crispness to the image.
