Maggie Before and After Using PhotoShop 6
Lowered saturation to - 65, softened the purple rings under eyes, defined her eyelashes with the burn tool, straightened her crooked pouty lip a bit with the liquify button as well as straighten out her chin a tiny bit, smoothed her skin with about an 11% opacity paint brush of her skin tone, used the burn tool on her hair, removed blemishes, removed white dots on shirt, just slightly burned her lips and eyebrows for definition, dodged the whites of her eyes slightly.

    The altered is lovely - the original is too pink in the skin tones. Those eyes are lovely and they are highlighted beautifully in the second version...good job.

Thanks Amanda! I spend a lot of time playing in PS!
I checked out your gallery and I just LOVE the 2nd photo of Gin that you took - the lighting and composition are awesome! She is a beautiful model with a great smile.

Thank you Kathleen, I wanted to maintain all aspects of the child - just refine the details in a manner of speaking... I never want a person to look at the photo and say what have you done? This doesn't even look like the same child!! LOL! so, thanks for your kind words. She is a beautiful child (my friends daughter) so she is easy to work with.

I really appreciate you explaining how you did this. I have been playing around with PS for a little while and there's so much to learn! But I have especially been trying to figure out how to smooth skin tones & you just helped A LOT!
