Shoot and Edit: Family edit

April 28, 2011 Sarah Coggins

I experimented with an action for my edit this week. I chose to use CoffeeShop Vintage from The CoffeeShop Blog. I adjusted the levels on the photo first and then ran the action. After the action completed, I adjusted the Tint and Colorizer layers to my liking. I wanted to retain some color, but keep it softer than the original. Finally I cropped the shot slightly to remove the distracting bit of picture frame in the top left corner and the light fixture to the right.

Join in the fun with Jill Samter Photography and Ramblings and Photos:
