I ♥ Faces - Fix It Friday

It's Fix It Friday again over at I Heart Faces! Here's the fixer upper for today called "Sweet Grin." Isn't he a cutie?
And here are my fixes. . .

I used Photoshop CS4, MCP Actions & PW Actions , and here's what I did (roughly):

  1. Basic exposure fixing
  2. Cropped in a little closer
  3. Cleaned up complexion & eyes with the healing brush
  4. MCP Light Fog Fixer
  5. MCP Eye Doctor
  6. MCP Magic Powder (25% Opacity)
  7. PW Soft & Faded (Color Fix Only)
  8. PW B&W Beauty (B&W Fix Only)

If you want to see how other people fixed this photo (or try your own hand at it!), head on over to I Heart Faces and check it out!


  1. Your color picture is just perfect!! I always try to achieve that perfection, but come up short... well done!!!

    Great job on both!

    God bless-

  2. I love the warmth of the first fix! It looks really great!

  3. very well done! both edits look great :)

  4. Love that first one! (The second one is great too, but I'm partial to the first. :-))

  5. I love the first one! His eyes are great!

  6. I'm likin' the black and white.

  7. I love that the tones are all fixed in your color image without a "plastic-y" feel. Nice work here!

  8. What a wonderful set of fixes!

  9. Thanks so much for all of the kind words, everyone! I'm definitely an action junkie, but I'm slowly learning to use them...responsibly :)

  10. i've got a new computer coming, then i'm going to order some of the MPC Actions, so i was glad to see you used some of them. your picture looks great!

  11. Thanks Alice! I LOVE MCP Actions - I hope you enjoy them once you get your new computer!!
