Fix it Friday #48

This is my first attempt @ Fix it Friday over @ I Heart Faces.  Several regular contributors to the I Heart Faces community edit a submitted photo, so that the rest of us can see & learn new editing techniques.  The fun part is you can play along, and submit your own edits. 

What a great shot!  Nice angle, adorable face, bright colors.

Here’s what I did.  Now, this is much more editing than I normally do, and not sure this is entirely my style, but I do like the way that it turned out!

1. Curves Bump.  2. MCP Under Exposure Fixer – masked out hat and background

3. MCP Magic Powder 70%  - masked lips and eyes

4. MCP Eye Doctor – low opacity brush 25%

5. MCP Sharp People

6. Slight Crop

7. MCP Burnt Edges Low Res 60%

8. Florabella Lighten/Brighten 76% (one of my new favorites, even at low opacity)



  1. Wow, what a beautiful job! I have to check out those MCP actions... :)
