Before & After with Pixel Perfect

It is not unusual for me to have absolutely no idea what day of the week it is - and today was one of those days. Thankfully I remembered in time to join up with one of my favorite link-ups (which is a good thing since I have an appointment this afternoon!). I LOVE before and afters. Processing can make such a huge difference in a photo (for better or worse) and while this edit is definitely outside of my usual style (if I have such a thing) I really like it and enjoyed playing around with the edit.

30/365
SOOC

vintage
Edited in PSE7 Paint the Moon "Sugar Cookies" + Pioneer Woman "Vintage"

Do you have a favorite action that you use often? I really need to get some new actions!

Very pretty Faith! I love Paint the Moon and PW too.....I really love making my own actions and presets though. I just found this site though, on this very link-up! http://ilafrancephoto.blogspot.com/search/label/free

She has a ton of freebies, but I haven't tried them yet....I just downloaded some myself! But they look great!

Mandy said...

Cool! I've never used any Paint the moon actions! And I've only ever used the eye pop action from Pioneer Woman. I should play with more actions from them!!
M y all time favorite actions come from Florabella Collection. I LOVE THEM. Use them with every. single. photo. Hands down the best money I have ever spent on anything photography :)

Beautiful picture, and edit!

See I really love the combination here and I wouldn't have thought of it. You keep reminding me to use Sugar Cookies...and to pair it with vintage is perfect. I'll definitely try that!

I love your SOOC! But I am really diggin the edited version. I have the Sugar cookie and I use it a lot.

I need to download that one. I edit everything with Florida from Everyday Elements - Everyday Actions. I just love the lighting options in it.
