Fix it Friday - Challenge #81

Today's I HEART FACES "Fix it Friday" photo challenge uses a photo by Michelle Johnson.  You can find her photosite here.


Let's be honest, there are so many photoshop actions out there, that you can create numerous variations with photos today. Here are a few of my favorite actions, and I used them on this beautiful photo.

#1 Heartland Action - by Pioneer Woman (because this photo had a timeless feel)

#2  Florabella Action - BW Champagne Haze

#3 Florabella Action - Allure  (I love how this one popped the colors)
PLUS, I added a Sunflare Warm Overlay from Patti Brown's Light Play (upper right hand corner)

#4 Paint the Moon - Illuminate Action
PLUS, I added on of patti Brown's flares, from her Lite Flare Overlays

#5 Mandy Chiappini's Black and White Pop action from her Fairytale Action set
PLUS, I rotated the photo 25% CCW and cropped it as an 8x10.

I can't wait to see your edits.  Happy Friday, and Happy Holidays!!!


  1. Oh all of your edits are just beautiful!!! You have such a great eye for it! I love your #3 edit the most (i think)! :) BUT I like the crop you did on the last one!

  2. Beautiful Edits! Love the cropped black and white the most!


  3. GASP. I love the last edit. That crop is fantastic.

  4. So beautiful!!!!!! I just love your work!!! You truly inspire me!!! : )

  5. Wow! They are all gorgeous! I think I liked the cropped bw the best. It's very beautiful and more intimate.

  6. Oh my Abby, you did so many. I hope to get a play at it too. They're all so different, it's fun how we can change things up so much!

  7. #2 & 3 are lovely, but I also really like the rotation and intimacy of the BW ;D

  8. Great edits! Love the cropped/rotated picture...awesome job!

  9. How the photos.

    Merry Christmas sweet Abby~~have a blessed time with your family!

    Sorry we didn't get to connect at Roger's Garden~~ let's try in the New Year!


  10. Lovely edits ... I really like the sun flair you added to the 4th one, but, being partial to B/W, well, that's got to be my fav! Doesn't hurt to have a gorgeous couple in an amazing image to work with either, does it! Great job, Abby! I also have to say the rest of your work is awesome! :) Hope you have a blessed holiday!
