HI

I tried to give her a little glamour treatment

removed blemishes, hot spots on face
lightened eyes
added eyelashes to fill in
darkened lips
blurred background
sharpened
color corrected

Hope u like!

also included a close crop so you could see the face

Hi - I wanted to give this a try too. Very nice photo.
I used a chanels adjustment layer set to luminosity monochrome checked to reduce the red. Then lowered the opacity of that layer.

quick 3 minute job.. various custom actions that soften skin, highpass filter, add contrast then desaturate, color filters ADD yellow that make the image look surreal, etc etc

Added hair
Curves for contrast
Sharpen

Thanks,

I might need to look into calibrating. There was no red on my end. Glad you liked it.

Yes it's quite a problem when posting images around here. What was perfect on your screen, suddenly looks "gawdy" (much too red) when posted.

- Try the colour option "Don't colour manage", and then save using the "Save for Web" command (<Shift><Ctrl><Alt><S>).
- If your colours are about right, there's a button at the bottom of the "Save for Web" screen where you can "try out" the image in your browser.
- Also, after uploading to RetouchPRO, you can click on your image in "Manage Attachments" and see how it's going to look.

Here's mine. Did a lot of little things. Also rotated and cropped (had to clone a bit of tree).
Tried to be a bit more "natural" than "glamour".
