This week’s Fix It Friday photo really didn’t look like it needed much “fixin'” to me! Cute pic, great composition; in the past I would have been absolutely thrilled to get a capture like this one. And really, I don’t know that my fixes are an improvement, but I did enjoy playing. I always open photos in the RAW editor in PSE 8 now (thank you for that tip, Andrea!) and do any adjustments to brightness, contrast, clarity, etc. I then open it into the regular PSE viewer and take it from there. I chose to do a mostly de-sat version, and then a second edit using MCP’s Texturizer action with a dark vignette texture. What do you think?
Head over to I Heart Faces to see some really wonderful edits; post-processing really does work magic, even on a picture that doesn’t look like it needs any processing at all!
