Fix-it-Friday #118 at i heart faces

It’s another Fix-it-Friday at i heart faces! I haven’t done a FIF in so long! I couldn’t resist this perfect autumn photo, it’s so cute! The original photo is from Angie Arthur Photography.

Here is the original photo:

And here is my edit:

First I opened the image in ACR, warmed it up and added a touch of fill. Then in PS CS5:

~Cloned right tire to remove distracting leaf.

~Ran Florabella’s Gypsy action from the Luxe Collection, tweaked the individual layers (reduced dull pop), then lowered overall opacity to 35%. I think this action adds a nice richness for autumn photos.

~Add a pale yellow fill layer set to color and reduced to 15% to a hint of yellow glow.

~Increased saturation by 10.

~Since mom and dad were already blurred a bit in the background, added a texture (to further emphasize kids) at 40% opacity set to overlay and masked 50% off of kids.

~Resized and sharpened for web.

These are a lot of fun to do. If you enjoy photo editing, head over to the i heart faces community and check it out!
