Edit Me: Week 19

Time for more editing fun.  Nate is in bed but talking to himself and Lance is sleeping in my arms.  Lucky for me, I have a laptop and can still edit while sitting on the couch.

This picture was taken by Deb Duty.  It' s a perfect picture to get us in the mood for fall.

Here is the before: 

And here is my edit:


I opened the SOOC in ACR, adjusted the yellow slider to give it a warmer feel, adjusted the blacks and the fill light.  Then I opened it in PSE9, duplicated the layer and set it to soft light (opacity 50%) to give the image more depth.  Then I ran Pioneer Woman's action Boost.  After the action, I added two Kim Klassen textures: Scratched Magic and Serious Magic.  One of the textures was set to soft light at an opacity of 30% and the other was set to the Screen Blending Mode. 

Enjoy your week!
