Fix it Friday! Attempt 2

Well after a trying my First Fix it Friday last week I and getting some nice positive feedback, I decided to give it another go. Here is this week’s attempt.
First the original image from I Heart Faces…

Then I did a tiny bit of tweeking in LR3. This picture is pretty much perfect as is so it didn’t need much.

After making some duplicates my first edit was simply to apply the Pioneer Woman’s Boost Action. I love how the Boost action brights everything up.

My next edit is also one using PW’s actions. I applied the Seventies action, with a slight bit of Edge burn to it.

My next edit I used the Raspberry Tea action from The CoffeeShop actions. I think this may be my favourite of this group.

And finally one more edit using Coffee Shop Attic Vintage Action, which I think is my 2nd favourite of this group. I love the softness it gave to the image. I chose not to apply a texture to the action.

Head on over to I Heart Faces Fix it Friday and check out the other great FIF submissions! I’m headed over there now with my tea.

    I like your edits. All subtle, but they all add just enough to each photo.

    Love your edits … especially the 70’s, and the vintage looks … I don’t have any actions downloaded on my computer, as of yet, so I try to recreate them on my own … I went for the vintage look myself, this time. This little girl just had the face for it! Great job … and, keep up the good work! 🙂

    I think the coffee shop attic vintage one is my favorite.

    I am definitely contemplating the Photoshop purchase. Your edits look like so much fun and it can do so much more than Picasa!

      For the price you can’t beat Photoshop Elements. I have 8, but 9 just came out. It has picked up the amazing content aware feature from CS5 which is very very cool. I would try the free 30 day download of PSE9 and see you if you like it. It is about $99, but you may find it cheaper. I found it at Costco for $79. I am sticking with 8 for now though…maybe next fall I will upgrade to 10 lol.
