Okay, so I did have some help. I used the free actions from Paint the Moon Photography for both photos.
Here is the first photo of my little Jude. I love his big beautiful eyes.
For this photo I used Vanilla Pop from Paint the Moon, and I also figured out how to use the healing brush to erase the boogies and clear up the red on Jude's cheeks. His nostrils look a little strange, and I couldn't figure out how to fix that, but all in good time:)
Before. I cropped this one in iPhoto, because I still haven't figured out how to crop in Photoshop.
After. I used Urban Delight to edit this one. It's not a great example of editing, but it's all I've got:)
I was looking through all the actions at Paint the Moon, and hope to one day afford them all. She really does amazing work, and I am completely baffled by the little amount of sleep that she can function on, with a baby and 6 year old, whom she home schools! Anyways, she takes beautiful photos and if you haven't heard of her, I suggest checking her out. She has some freebies, tips and tricks as well as very helpful tutorials, and I absolutely adore her work.
Have a wonderful day!
