Fix-It #17 - Hands-On Photo Editing!


It is Fix it Friday at http://iheartfaces.blogspot.com/.

This is one of my favorite days. I love photo editing... I think it is one of my favorite things about photography because it is your chance to be creative and artistic!

I have seen this beautiful family many times at I Heart Faces. To visit this wonderful family click here http://thestanleyclan.blogspot.com/. There little girl is so adorable and I love seeing her every week in the I Heart Faces photo contests.

Here is my edit... and yes I know I am so boring because I add glamour glow to all photos of little girls. I guess it is just my thing!

MY EDIT

What did I do


The lighting was already pretty good on the photo so I left that alone


1) I enhanced her eyes


2) Adjusted the contrast


3) Reduced the noise in the photo


4) Added glamour Glow and reduced the saturation


5) Added a frame and a border


That's pretty much it. I used Photoshop Elements 2.0 ( I know so old school) and I also used Nik Color Efex Software for filtering.


ORIGINAL PHOTO


Let me know what you think! Have a great day everyone! Happy Friday!
