Fix-it Friday #69 at i heart faces

This Fix-it Friday photo was submitted by Rachel Durik, an IHF contributor. Here is the original photo:


And here is my edit (image is clickable to see it larger):


Doing such an intense crop on a low-res photo made it quite grainy, but you get the gist of what I was wanting to accomplish... focusing more on the couple and their faces.

Workflow in PS CS4:
~fixed shadows/highlights
~adjusted levels
~Noiseware at low opacity
~warmed up tones by adding a color fill layer with a golden tone and set to soft light, lowered opacity
~added a vignette

Thanks for looking and come check out the other edits at i heart faces!


  1. I really like the nice tight crop! Great job!

  2. I really like the idea of the tight crop that you did! :)

  3. Love this crop! Most of the edits I've seen have cropped it in one way or another, but yours is the first horizontal one I've seen, and it's great!

  4. Very unusual crop. First I've seen - I like it! Good job!

  5. Ladies, thank you all for the lovely comments! Rachel, I'm honored that you stopped by my blog. You've made my day!
