A Little Editing Fun! Friday Fix-It!

The fine folks at I Heart Faces have a neat little game every Friday.  They post a less than desirable although savable photo and encourage the community to give their ending skills a workout!  I’ve spent countless hours and big bucks on classes and workshops learning the ins and outs of Photoshop and Lightroom.  So let’s see if the money was well spent.

The before…

In all honesty this wasn’t a difficult fix.  It looks like the white balance was just a bit off and the photo needed perhaps a bit of brightening.

The After…

I adjusted the white balance with Lightroom’s dropper tool.  To give the photo a bit of drama and pop I applied a preset from Pretty Presets called Sun Kissed.  Finally I brought the image into Photoshop to pop out the gorgeous eyes and bring a of shine to her hair.

And since I was having such a great time I thought I’d try a couple of more looks.  Tell me, which one is your favorite?

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

    I used to do these all the time. I would still like to do it but I always forget about it! Will have to make a note to myself for next Friday. 🙂
