Fix-It Friday #87 {I Heart Faces}

By Friday, February 18, 2011 3 Permalink 0

This is my very first {I Heart Faces} Fix-It Friday entry and I am so excited to share with you all my very first edit!

The whole idea behind this challenge is to edit the photo given every week. This week’s photo was taken by Andrea Riley.


{My Edit}

Here’s how I did it.

On Photoshop CS5

  1. I cropped the photo. Canvas size: photo 3 x 2
  2. Adjust brightness/contrast to B: 42, C: 10
  3. I used the MCP Mini Fusion action. With this action you are given the opportunity to play with opacity of different layers
    • Top layer, Increase Opacity to 36%
    • Second layer, Increase Opacity to 6%
    • Mini Fusion Folder: Changed color of Hazy layer to “565541”
    • Tone Folder: Changed Cool Blue Layer to visible
    • Merged all.
    • Changed Pink Cadillac layer to visible

For this look I simply used MCP’s Burnt Edges action (Burnt Edged Hi-Res I)

This was so much fun that I have considered joining in weekly from now on! Yeah!
