Fix-it Friday!

I can't believe it's Friday already! This week just flew by! This week's photo for Fix-it Friday was taken by Jennifer over at Confessions of a Working Mom. It was a pretty adorable photo to begin with, but I had fun editing it!

Original:
Fix #1:
I use Paint Shop Pro 9 for all my photo editing. Here's what I did:
- Reduced the noise
- Adjusted the brightness and contrast
- Adjusted the color saturation on her shirt, eyes and hair clip
- Cropped portrait

Fix #2:
From Fix #1, I:
- undid the crop
- converted to black & white
- increased the contrast a little bit more
- cropped landscape

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Very very cute. My hubs is getting me photoshop (full version!) this weekend so I can start playing around with the photos he takes. I am all excited to overdo stuff! Then, all your advice will come in handy, so the pic will actually look good!

Great edits, I love the crop angles. Especially #2, looks like the cover of a greeting card =)

Lovin' the landscape crop! I'm usually the first to go there, but didn't even think of it this time.

Great job!
