Fix It Friday #99

I've never participated in I Heart Faces Fix It Friday given my blog is to chronicle our family's life and isn't a photography blog.  But, most of my follows are fellow photography lovers and I really loved this shot... so I thought I'd jump in and share an edit....

1.  In adobe raw, I increased the exposure and brightness and corrected the color
2.  In Photoshop, I softened skin using Coffeeshop Powderoom 2 and adjusted to taste.
3.  I added a Soft Light layer and masked off skin at 70% and masked off areas where black details were lost.
4.  Brightened eyes with a curves layer.
5.  Removed color cast from lollypop using MCP Reflective Color Cast Vanisher from Bag of Tricks
6.  Brushed on a little rosy glow to cheeks
7.  Increased red and blue color saturation and masked off the skin...
8.  A touch of sharpening...



  1. HI! I love what you did with the eyes! can you tell me how to do it? i use photoshop elements!

  2. LOVE your edit! Very clean and the colors are perfect!

  3. Love the edit, those eyes are perfect!
