Fix It Fridays #68


Each Friday the I HEART FACES blog posts a picture SOOC (straight out of camera) and people submit their fixes.  It's fun to see the different things that can be done to a single photo.  For the past few weeks I've been keeping a close eye on what's been done, who's submitting, all of that.  There are so many talented photographers out there and I'm learning that they're a generous lot - so quick to share their knowlege, willing to teach what they know.

It's time for me to quit lurking and start participating so here goes.

The is the original photo SOOC

All of my edits have the following in common:
- Editing was done in PS Elements 8
- Cropped from original
- All actions were adjusted in various layers
- Layers were flattened after each action

CoffeeShop Little Perk action
CoffeeShop IcePop action
Pioneer Woman Colorized (50%) action
MCP Texture Applicator to apply ShadowHouse "All Hell Breaks Loose" Texture - Multiply at 55% opacity
I then erased the texture from the girl and her dress 

CoffeeShop Orton action, adjusting the opacity of the Orton layer and Color Mute layer.
Pioneer Woman Edge Burn Action at 59% then removing it from the subject and the area directly around her.

Everyday Actions Diffuse Hotspots action (layer adjustments made)
Nelly Nero's Antique Overlay action (layer adjustments made)

Only used one action on this one - CoffeeShop Cocoa2.  I decreased the Cocoa layer then painted most of it away from her skin.

CoffeeShop Creamy Chocolate BW action with opacity adjustments.

You completely astound me with your talent but I didn't know you were now fluent in the Greek language! :-)
Love you!

Sorry, Meganleigh, I accidently "published" your comment twice and forgot that deleting the duplication only removes the content of the comment so it looks like you said something objectionable, rather than just me correcting my own error.
