What a beautiful girl this week! I can tell her eyes are gonna sparkle!
First step : Bring up the exposure. That’s all I did here. I used MCP Actions Underexposure fixer THREE times at 100 % each to get the light up.
The rest of my steps:
1. Curves S layer - slight
2. MCP Actions Magic Skin 35%
3. CS4 Clone Stamp Tool to remove a few blemishes on forehead and nose
4. Florabella Collection Lighten/Brighten 49%
5. MCP Sharp People 100%
6. Florabella Collection Cosmopolitan 40%
7. Crop to 5x7
I have to admit (and you can probably tell) I love to use actions! When I first owned CS4, I purchased the Scott Kelby book and spent many a late night teaching myself how to use this awesome program.
So, I don’t feel too badly about using actions – I do know how to do most of these actions (or close anyway!) on my own. What time savers they are!
