Two points: I wanted to make this teen really stood out from his surroundings, and I wanted to connect the sunlight prism colors with his cool, tie-dyed shirt.

I {Heart} Faces. Fix-It Friday 4-1-10


It’s Fix-It Friday #49 here at i heart faces!! This is our “just-for-fun” day when we learn new photo editing tricks from our Contributors as they explain how they “fixed-up” the special photo we gave them. The really awesome part is that we then all get to play along with the Fix-It ourselves!

This week’s photo comes from Jessie who blogs at The Lucas Zoo. This photo is of her adorable daughter, Violet.
original picture
My first fix softened the picture, then added a layer of my favorite color. *And her name IS violet*  I think a monochrome layer is fun and adds some uniqueness to the picture.  I also cropped and shifted the picture.
After I did the first fix, I realized there was design on the wall behind her that picked up the color layer.  So for my second fix, I erased that design and made the color fuller.  Kept the softened look.
It’s kinda hard to do much wrong with this picture, Violet is so cute!
And for your review….
There are so many talented participants in the Fix-It Friday so run on over to I ♥ Faces and see how they treated Violet.

The photography website I ♥ Faces encourages and advises all levels of photographers.  Amateur and Professional photographers come together to give advice, compliment, teach and promote photography.  Early in the week they host a theme challenge.  This week it was “Focusing on Angles” and I entered this picture. On Fridays they host Fix-It-Friday.  They provide a photo that you can work on and link back to the photo.  I think it is fascinating to see the multitude of fixes, all different and creative.  If you have an interest in photography, this website is for you.

This week’s photo comes from Natalie P who blogs at And Then There Were Three …although we’ve heard that soon there will be four! 🙂 This photo is of her adorable little gal, Abigail.

Original Fix-It Picture

Here is my fix. I wanted to focus on Abigail’s eyes (get it, focused?!?!?), so I removed the color from the picture *even though pink is about my favorite color* so that it was easier to be centered around her eyes.

Here’s the before and after:

I {Heart} Faces. Fix-It Friday 3-12-10.


The photography website I ♥ Faces encourages and advises all levels of photographers.  Amateur and Professional photographers come together to give advice, compliment, teach and promote photography.  Early in the week they host a theme challenge.  This week it was “Jump for Joy” and I entered this picture.  On Fridays they host Fix-It-Friday.  They provide a photo that you can work on and link back to the photo.  I think it is fascinating to see the multitude of fixes, all different and creative.  If you have an interest in photography, this website is for you.

I {Heart} Faces said this :

This week’s photo went through an amazing transformation and, to be honest with you, when we first sent this one out to our contributors we thought for sure that they’d be writing back to us “Are you crazy?! This photo is un-fixable!” Instead we received comments back that at first glance they thought this photo was not going to be able to be fixed, but then it ended up being one of their favorite FIF photos ever!

This week’s photo, which was sent to us by Amy Pinney, is proof positive that many, many photos are fixable and we can save many precious moments even if they are taken in less-than-perfect circumstances.

Amy wrote: “The photo I’m submitting is one of my daughter watching her Grandpa play Pinball. It’s very closely cropped to include just her face and arms propped on the machine, which you can only see enough of to know what it is. I’m very interested to see what the I Heart Faces team can do with it!”

And here is my fix:

Here is a comparison of the two shots:

I use Picnik for my photo editing.  If I had more time, I could tinker with this more, but this is it. For now, anyway.
