i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

I haven't done one in a while and I have missed it tremendously. So, I decided to take some time out of my day and have some fun :)


I wanted to warm and brighten the photo up so I ran Tea Time action and Brighten that Baby Up from Pure Actions. I also added a layering mask and offset the photo.

I wanted to see what it would look like in black & white so, I ran Coffeeshop Vintage News (I took off the news print part). I loved it!! I then added a frame and offset the photo once again.

I can't wait to check out what others have done with this beautiful photo!!

i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

Yay For Friday!!
It's that time again where i heart faces provides us with a picture to edit.

 Fix 1:
I opened up the image in Adobe Camera Raw and had some fun with the sliders! This is what I ended up with! I knew I wanted to lighten and brighten the photo and I love it!
 Fix 2:
I took Fix 1 and ran PW Heartland action and tweaked it a bit. If I had left it on the default settings it would have looked really washed out. I like this much better!
 Fix 3:
I took Fix 1 and cropped it for a more personally feel. I also wanted to soften the colors so, I ran PW soft & faded action. I think that did the trick!

i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

It's Friday!!
I did NOT take this photo. I was given permission to edit it only.


Fix 1
Cropped, ran PW Boost action & reduce the zing opacity to 46%, ran PW warmer action & reduced opacity to 38%, flatten, and then I added some bokah texture and erased it from the girls face, flattened and saved.

Fix 2
Took Fix 1 and ran PW Heartland and reduced the opacity on the range compression to 75%. I really liked how it brought back a little more pop in the contrast. Flattened & saved.

Took Fix 1 and had some fun!!

i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

Today's photo was taken by Angie Arthur. It is a wonderful photo it just needs a little bit of warmth added to it.

Here is her SOOC photo:

For my first fix, I added some warmth and then softened it a little bit.

My second fix I wanted some more edge to it so, I increased the contrast. I also bumped up the colors a bit too!

 For my final fix, I kept the contrast and color of the second fix and just softened it up a bit. I added a border and a saying for my final touches!

This was a really fun picture to edit! If you'd like to have some editing fun click over to i heart faces and download the photo!

I hope you enjoyed my fixes :)

i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

It's Friday again!!! I love Fix-It Fridays and this one is no different. The photo is adorable! I really love kiddos in pumpkin patches :)

***I did NOT take this photo. I was given permission to take the photo and edit it as I wish.***


FIX 1:
I opened the image up in photoshop and cropped it. I then brightened it up a bit using a levels layer. Flatten. I then ran CoffeeShop's Baby Powder action and smoothed the little girls skin, lighten her skin a bit, defined her eyes and brightened them. Flatten.

FIX 2:
I took FIX 1 and ran CoffeeShop Johnna's Tea Party and turned on the top one with contrast boost and set the opacity at 48%. Flatten.

FIX 3:
I took FIX 1 and ran a spoon full of sugar action under dreaming in black and white (I don't remember who I got it from). I left everything as is except for gradient map 1 (87%). Flatten.

FIX 4:
I took FIX 1 and add a texture, put the texture in Overlay at 100%. I then add a layer mask to the texture to erase away the texture on the little girl. Flatten. I then added some text and flattened again.

I had so much fun editing this photo! I hope you like what I did!

i heart faces {Fix-It Friday}

Yay it's Friday!! Time for another Fix-It Friday!!

The picture we were given to fix is of the cutest little girl.
Remember, I did NOT take this picture. I am only allowed to edit it.


1st fix
I opened it up in RAW, cropped it and fixed it just a little bit.
I then opened it up in photoshop and ran the Orton Effect action (CoffeShop).
I made a few personal tweaks and flattened.
I then ran an eye love action (don't remember where it came from) to brighten and make the eyes shine.
Flatten and save!

2nd fix
I took the cropped picture I edited in RAW and ran a Golden Vintage action (CoffeeShop).
I made a few personal adjustments and flattened.
I again ran the eye love action (as above) to brighten and make the eyes shine.
Flatten and save!
I love how it warms up the picture :)

3rd fix
I took the cropped picture I edited in RAW and ran Soft Autumn Glow action (CoffeeShop).
I made a few adjustments and then flattened.
I again ran the eye love action...I wish I could remember where I got it!
Flatten and save!

4th fix
I went and cropped the picture a little bit tighter for a portrait feel.
I ran Creamy Chocolate B&W action (CoffeeShop).
I pretty much left it alone except for brushing away the creaminess from the little girls' eyes.
I flattened and then ran the eye love action.
Flatten and save!
I think this one is my favorite!!!!
