I ♥ Faces! Fix-It Friday

Another Fix-It-Friday at I Faces! I haven't been able to participate the last two weeks, but I do like to keep practicing with photoshop on pictures other than my own so I do want to keep up with these fix-it-fridays!

Here is the original picture. This is such an cute picture of an adorable little girl. It also has the same problem that I have to deal with on quite a few of my pictures: dark shadows in the face!

Here is my edited version.

I duplicated the original and then on the duplicate layer did a curves adjustment and put that layer as a mask so that I could reveal only the parts I wanted to lighten. I did this a few times as I would do different adjustments for different parts of her body. I also added a very slight "flattery" filter from Virtual Photographer to her tutu and darker skin areas.

Check out the other great "fix-its" at I Faces :


  1. I love the brightness and softness you were able to create...great edit!

  2. This baby is adorable. I love the softness you applied. Also looks like there is a soft vignette.
    Wishing you a picture perfect Friday!

  3. Beautiful job. Someday I hope to be able to edit proficiently. Loved your edits.

  4. Thanks for the tips and advice on my picture.. great ideas on how to reduce the harsh highlights! Thanks again!


It's always so nice to receive feedback! Thank you!
