Touch-Up Tuesday: Babies Smooth Skin

It's no secret... not all babies are born with smooth silky milky skin, but that doesn't mean we can't capture them in such a way :)
Here are a few editing tips that may help you out!

To start this image off I zoomed in, started in the top right corner & worked my way around her face, removing blemishes with my healing brush in Elements, then slightly edited her skin tone, removing redness. Next step was to slightly crop, then use my burn tool to completely darken the background & around her body. Added a bit of focal soften around her face, slight vignetting & voila... finished!

See not too much to it, but a wee bit of editing brought this image a long way. Plus she's my sweet little niece & that face could melt any heart♥
Hope this helped & happy editing!
