I Heart Faces has weekly editing challenges. This is a fun way to learn some new editing techniques, and see what various editing tools can do. This week's original photo is by Jessica Page, for the "I Heart Faces" Fix it Friday challenge.

THESE ARE THE STEPS I USED TODAY:
Software Used: Adobe Photoshop CS
Step 1 - Actions Used - Paint the Moon - wonder quickie
Paint the Moon blog
Step 2 - Dodge tool on teeth, eyes, and under eyes to lighten. I used the healing brush on the older girls scar between her eyes, and I cloned the younger girls teeth to fill the gap. I burned the background and the hot spots on the girls faces to recover some of the lost detail from the bright sun.
Step 3 - MCP action - fake blue sky (in the Bag of Tricks Action Set)

Step 4 - Rotate 15% CCW and crop in a square. To keep the fingers I had to clone the older girls jacket and shirt to fill the frame.
Voila. That is my edit. I look forward to seeing yours too. Happy Fix it Friday!
