Fix-it Friday #92 at i heart faces!

It’s another Fix-it-Friday at i heart faces this week! This beautiful newborn is brought to us by Andrea Riley, an i heart faces contributor. Here is the original photo:

And here is my edit:

Using Lightroom 3:

~Increased exposure and blacks

~Adjusted white balance

~Turned on lens correction to remove fisheye effect

Using Photoshop CS5:


~Ran Noiseware at low opacity

~Fixed blemishes and removed little booger using the healing brush and clone tools

~Added selective color adjustment layer, reduced black levels in red channel

~Added brighness/contrast adjustment layer, reduced contrast by 20

~Selected Color Range>Highlights, copied to new layer, set to screen blend mode at 10% opacity, then ran Guassian Blur at 15 to add a glow effect (to match the blurring where the baby and blanket meet)

~Brightened up (evened out) baby’s left cheek skin tone using a center fill layer masked to show only left cheek

~Added a touch of hazy yellow by using a very pale yellow color fill layer set to color blend mode at low opacity (20%), then another adjustment layer of levels pushing the shadows to the right for haze, also at low opacity (15%)

~Resized and sharpened for web
