I’d like to say it’s minimal work(as it looks minimal), but I spent like half an hour tweaking with the lighting and totally loving my new found ability to marquee a certain area of my face, then “layer via copy” and then “free transform”-ing it to my desired size.. If I’m not happy I’ll warp it a bit…and YAY! I have bigger eyes and a smaller nose.(I added shadows to the sides with a soft brush using a colour i picked right off one of the shadows on my skin with minimal opacity. 🙂 :))
Eye bags removal is SOoo noob. I’m wayyyy past that. Hahaha kidding, the clone tool and healing brush tool are like heaven sent. They will totally save the day.
Magic Wand tool on the hair and then colour balance to get my reddish-copper hair.
The lighting is by making a background copy and then changing it to overlay and then using diffuse glow.
Ahhh. The satisfaction of being a less noobish photoshop user.
And so children, that’s how Jolene got her latest facebook profile photo. Yay yay yay.
I’m not a liar, so I didn’t go all the way. Ahem.
