Fix-It Friday
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 think it could use a lot of pop! The first thing I did was create a more interesting frame – at an angle. Then I used Color Pop.
I like this angle much better! From this point, I played around with a few actions. This next one is called Lomo.
This one is called Golden Vintage – I love the effect…might be my favorite.
 This one is called Splendor B&W. I like it, but the vignette may be a little heavy. 
This last one is called Creamy Chocolate. I think it adds a nice B&W effect. Anyways, I enjoyed playing and can’t wait for my next challenge!
