Customer Share with Step by Step Tutorial on Before to After

Gina Neary of Pea Head Prints sent in two incredible before and after shots and with her permission I am sharing them here.  In addition, after each she wrote briefly what steps she did to achieve these after shots.  I hope this inspires and teaches some of you how one of my customers is using her photoshop skills combined with MCP Photoshop Actions.

 

Here are the steps she said she used for this 1st shot:
1. Basic Exposure Fixer (MCP Quickie Collection)
2. Touch of Light on the baby (Free in TRY ME section at MCP Actions)
3. Patch tool (chin only for redness)
4. Non-Destructive on white backdrop (MCP Quickie Collection)
5. Skin Cast Blast / Bye Bye Lobsters, adjusted to low % (MCP Magic Skin Actions Set)
6. Powder Your Nose for imperfections (MCP Magic Skin Actions Set)
7. High Definition Sharpening (Free on MCP Blog)
8. Crop

    Wow. What a big difference in the before and after pictures. It’s amazing how much cropping and photoshopping can improve an already great photo.
