So, I totally spaced and didn’t remember to keep all the steps I did to edit this photo. This photo was for this weeks I Heart Faces challenge: Purple. By the way: I am in no way a Photoshop pro. I have mostly taught myself. 🙂

  • I always start with exposure. I like to take the fog our of the photo.
  • I used the dodge tool to whiten the eyes. And, then the clone stamp under her eyes. (I usually don’t like to edit that much, but I wanted this photo to make her look a little doll like. :D)
  • I played with the curves to my taste.
  • I added a solid purple layer and screened it to give a sort of purple glow.

That’s about it. 🙂 I always suggest that anyone interested in editing their photos google tutorials on how to do any techniques they want to learn. It’s a TON of help. 🙂

The numbers have been reset! Help me get in the top 10! I ♥ you!

    OK, your little one is WAAAAY too cute! What a sweet little gal! This is a great edit – I never thought about adding a colored layer. Great idea! I'll have to try that. This is a great edit. A lovely improvement from the SOOC, but not overdone. Fantastic! 🙂
