This week’s i ♥ faces’ Fix-It Friday photo is of a little girl who is just a little under-exposed. It’s a nice picture with great shallow depth of field, nice focus on the face, sweet smile and cute vest. I decided to follow Julie Rivera‘s steps to enhance an already beautiful photograph…of course, adding my own spin to it. Here’s the original: And here’s my edit: In my edit, I adjusted the s-curve and layers to brighten her up and darken the background (mostly following Julie’s exact steps). I then smoothed her skin using Coffeeshop’s...

To go along with the  “We Are Family” theme, i ♥ faces wanted to highlight a family whose dad has been struggling with cancer for years. They recently found out the devastating news in December that his cancer is now terminal, and are now doing everything they can to enjoy the rest of the time they have together on this earth. Since I just found a ton of free Photoshop Elements compatible actions last night on Coffeeshop Photography, I thought what better way to test drive my new actions! Here is the original photo:  Aren’t they a great family? I love this shot, but I...
