Fix-It Friday

March 26, 2010
This week’s photo comes to us from Natalie from And Then There Were Three. This is her daughter, Abigail – isn’t she cute? Although I typically like to add a vintage look to my photos…and I was hoping to test out PW’s new PSE actions, this photo lent itself really well to a bright, happy finish. Here’s my steps: I used DP’s Perfect Workflow first – I’ve found this is really a great way to do a lot of post-processing as quickly as possible.  Next I used PW’s Bring Out the Eyes action. I did a little additional dodge and burn to...

This Friday’s fix-it challenge is brought to us by Frogmum. She wrote, “My daughter is standing in our front garden – I was laying down. It was a beautiful day, but her face was in full shade & looks a bit blurry. She looks too dull against the blue sky. I’d like to be able to pull the whole thing up and make her pop out without losing the beauty of that blue sky.” I also love this photograph and wanted to respect the owner’s wishes to not lose the beauty of that blue sky. Here’s the original: And here’s my edit:Although I appreciated her...
