Preview of Coming Attractions! Baby PowderRoom Action Update and Tutorial!

I have been wanting to update Baby PowderRoom (the original will still be available for download) and also write a step-by-step tutorial on editing a blotchy baby for some time.  I asked my Facebook fans if they could send me an unedited baby image that needed a lot of photoshop help.  I received quite a few great images but I could only pick one and I decided on an image from Julie of Julie Harding Photography.  Julie was generous enough to send me an SOOC (straight-out-of-camera) unedited underexposed and blotchy image for me to use in my tutorial.  Thank you so much Julie!

This tutorial will show you how to fix exposure/color issues, quickly remove red blotches, use my updated Baby PowderRoom, and add an optional textured background.  I am really excited about this tutorial and hope to get it up in the next day or two.  This action and tutorial will work in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

I know as photographers we should strive to take perfect images, but sometimes the best images from a shoot are ones that aren't perfect SOOC and need some editing help.  :-)
