Touch Up Tuesday: Photoshop curves

Hello! I'd LOVE to welcome all of you lovely people to the 11th Touch Up Tuesday at Paper Heart Camera!

................................. 


Touch Up Tuesday:

Before: SOOC

After:

My edit: First I ran my Brighten Me action. From the action I turned off Exposure, Black and White, and Color Fill. Then I turned on the Levels 2 layer. I lowered the Levels 2 opacity to 50%. Next I added a curves layer and adjusted the curves to my taste. Ran the noise filter and then I was done! Playing with the curves can really change a lot in a photo. If you haven't tried curves yet, and you have photoshop... give it a try!



Photography love...
