Once again another editing challenge that I can't resist! here is the original photo:
I use photoshop elements 7
first I used levels and adjusted the sliders to the lightened effect I wanted then I corrected the skin color and up'ed the saturation and contrast. I masked off the family and used a photo filter on the background to warm it up a bit. I also used a couple Coffee Shop actions: urban grit on the leaves and glamour glow just to bring out the eyes a touch.
So that is my process for this photo I hope you like it!
So go HERE to join the I heart Faces Fix it Friday!
