I LOVE taking photos and then editing them to make them more beautiful. I have much to learn, but am enjoying what I've been learning lately about masks. Here's an example of how I took a picture of Whitney from Christmas and changed it from yellow and drab, to soft, bright and lovely. First I used my program's auto balance feature to balance out the colors. Then I used a mask to brighten her eyes a little, and a clone brush to fix some imperfections on her face. I smoothed her skin a little, added a Gaussian Blur to the entire image, and used an undo brush to sharpen only her face and hair. Lastly I added a vignette around her. The program I used is Sagelight. Here's the before and after.
