Fix It Friday - I Heart Faces





This weeks photo was taken by Dana Suggs.


Vintage Colour

Edit Details

First I flipped the photo, then I increased the colour saturation by 15 and cropped it slightly. Next I ran the CoffeeShop Perfect Portraits 2 action. Using the layers within the action I smoothed out the skin and adjusted the contrast. Then flattened the file. Next I applied the CoffeeShop Simply Vintage action but deleted the "soft haze" layer. Lastly I cropped the corners to really emphasize the vintage feel.


Baby Blues

Edit Details

This edit was rather simple. After cropping the shot and adjusting the saturation I ran the CoffeeShop Perfect Portraits 2 action. Using the layers within the action, I smoothed out the skin, adjusted the contrast and defined the eyes. I also added the optional vignette.


Up Close

Edit Details

After creating the second edit, I simple turned on the B & W conversion layer of the CoffeeShop action the flattened and flipped it.
