This Friday’s picture on I Heart Faces was too adorable not to play with.

I only used PhotoScape for this edit.  This perfect little face didn’t need any fixing, I just wanted to brighten the background and bring out the color in her hat and gloss in her beautiful brown eyes.

Here is the Original:

Here’s my Fix:

Here are the steps I took….

Step 1 – Correct white balance.
Step 2 – Darken and Deepen the tones
Step 3 – Added a low level backlight
Step 4 – blew the background out of focus (.5 / very little), just enough to smooth the fur on her jacket and the corner on her lapel.
Step 5 – Added a curl border

How cute is she?!?!?!
