Fix-it Friday from Iheartfaces - With a Twist!

This is a different kind of
~~fix-it Friday ~~

I heart faces for me this week. 

It's the middle of the night . . . and . . . I'm working at my REAL job . . .
and do not have access to my laptop or any professional editing software such as
Lightroom or Photoshop.

So I decided to use FLICKR and

and see what I could come up with using those two services alone.

Actually . . . I really quite LIKE the final result :D

Here is Susan's SOOC image that we begin with . . .
I sooOoo think she and her family are sooOoo adorable!

After opening the photo at
I moved the ROTATE slider to the left slightly to give it a little bit of a tilt kick.

Then using the EXPOSURE
 advanced feature - I bumped the highlights and brightness to the right.
Under colors -slid the temperature to the right and warmed the photo up quite a bit, also increased the saturation just a little.

Next I sharpened by moving the slider to the right slightly.

Next up:
under the CREATE / EFFECTS tab I added a little Orton-ish processing
and backed it off slightyly.

I added a bright and warm TEXTURE that gave it a warm summery look

Added a little grain with the FILM GRAIN

And finally - under the ADVANCED tab added a very slight s-curve and a slight levels bump to the right.

Last but not least - added a fun FRAME and some TEXT!

I REALLY quite like the result
(ahhh . . . I really am a BIG fan of aren't I??)
