{FLASHY} Fix-It Friday #82

Over at I Heart Faces they do a weekly participation edit. A contributor offers up a picture and anybody can join in and edit the photo. Looking through entries and checking out the steps somebody takes to edit is a great way to learn!

This is my first time participating, hopefully I did the picture justice!

My Edit

I have to admit I don't always have a set workflow for editing. I like to play until I like it! Here is a quick run down of what I did with this picture.
  • Levels adjustment on all channels at 90% opacity
  • Second levels adjustment on all channels at 50% opacity
  • Brown gradient, hard light blend mode
  • duplicated background image at 85% opacity (this is to let the gradient come through)
  • duplicated background, screen blend mode at 45% opacity
  • High pass sharpen, overlay blend mode
  • High pass sharpen again, hard light blend mode
  • And a slight crop
