Fix It Friday

Its another "Fix it Friday" at I ♥ Faces. My favorite day of the week! Someone submits a picture to I ♥ Faces and then we get to play with it!!

Original Shot (Its already a great one which makes it hard to play with!)





This version is sharpened, and the saturation and contrast levels are adjust a little bit, then cropped.




This black and white is a fun one, though I can't take much credit for it since I just ran some actions. I first ran an action from "Coffee Shop Actions" on it called "Powder Room" it gives the skin a really even tone and makes the eyes sparkle. Then I used an action from Coffee Shop called "Coffee With Cream" this really lightened up the image. My final step was to run one of my favorite black and white actions called "Ally's B&W".



This last one is super fun...I added a grungy texture over the edited image. I pasted my grungy pattern onto the image, and then chose "overlay" for that layer. Then I partially removed it with the history brush across the face. I think this one might be my favorite this week!
