Fix-It Friday #26

Before:3863122655_ded6cc04d8_b-1

After:3863122655_ded6cc04d8_b copyStraightened and cropped the photo to a 5x5.

Adjusted the color, tone and contrast.

Ran PW’s Sharpen and Define and then the Slightly Lighten twice, reducing the second to around 50%.

Ran Coffee Shop Perfect Portrait adjusting multiple layers: eye define, eye brighten, reducing the lighten and masking it out completely on the background, and using only the urban pop on the flowers .

Then used MCP’s Crystal Clear Web Resize.

To see how others tackled this already beautiful portrait, head on over to i heart faces.

Nice! I think I need to get the Crystal Clear Web Resize. Mine never look sharp as soon as they go up on my blog. Hmmm.

wow. I really like this. I like the tone and the colors on this. It brings out highlights in her hair and the colors on her dress and flowers just pop in this photo

This is so stunning.

I was actually sitting at my computer last night at 2:00 am (so I guess it was this morning) just about crying because I was so perplexed by photoshop.

You are really amazing. You do the best job! I am so happy for you!

You got Mad Skillz Melinda! Mad Skillz!
