Fix-It Friday #28

What a precious little one! And really such a lovely photo.

Before:baby before I decided that there was a little too much of that precious head in the photo for my taste and since it wasn’t really adding to the overall feel, I cropped a lot of it out (8x10)

After:baby after

I also cleaned up the little bit of food on her face and then played with the color, contrast and tone.

I then ran Rita’s (from Coffee Shop) “Perfect Portrait” action and adjusted the layers to my liking, dodging and burning the shadows on her face.

Next I ran PW’s “Soft and Faded” and reduced the opacity to around 30 or 40%.

And last but certainly not least I ran Jodi’s (from MCP Actions) “Crystal Clear Web Resize.”

To see how others touched up this cutie-patootie, head on over to i heart faces.
