I Heart Faces {Fix It Friday}



Original Picture





My Edited Version


I'm a big fan of the fresh, sunshiny look in my photos, so I stuck with actions from Paint the Moon's "Fresh" action set.
First I used "Pop My Flare" to bring in a bright burst of light.
Then, I added a sfaux sun flare effect from the same "Fresh" collection (around 20% opacity) to give it a subtle dreamy effect.

I really like the final product.  My edits are not drastic, but I feel they make the picture bright and happy. I love to bring my personality to pictures.  It's a fun way to express myself!

Happy Friday All!

That's a gorgeous shot - and like you said, while it's not a drastic difference, it's enough to make the photo more unique and brilliant.

Thank you, I am enjoying using Rayn as my practice. However, I am going to have to sit down one day and have you teach me some wonderful things that I have not figured out on my own! One more month of summer! Happy late Anniversary and Congratulations on almost being done with your master's degree.
