    I had a go at editing these photos in Photoshop to try and give them a porcelain-look. I quite like them, although the contrast is a bit high in some. The 3rd one is my fav because the eyes really have that doll-look to them.

    Thanks!

    In answer to Mark, well I didn't really do that much to the photos in Pshop. All the pictures were taken with natural light next to a window, so they were very vivid and made the baby's eyes shine, and they had a good reflection of the window, too.
    I desaturated the pictures in Pshop to begin with. I then adjusted the contrast, made it quite high, and then adjused the levels to get that very sketchy-look. I sharpens the baby's eyes and mess around with levels/contrast again until I got the look I wanted. In the 4th one, I smudged/blurred the skin slightly to help bring out the eyes. I softened some of the edges on all the pictures, too, using the smudge tool.

    hi ya ella, thanks for that :)
    though it doesn't sound like much done in photoshop, tweaking anyone of those steps you mentioned can really have a huge impact on a photo (even its subtle). Well done and cheers for sharing! :)

    The last two are super duperlicious!

    Just some PS tips if you want (if you already know these things then just discard it to me babbling...): you can also sharpen the eyes more that everything else in the pic by using any sharpen tool a lot then take a snapshot and go back the open image (under history) select history brush and click the box on the left (right next to where it says snapshot 1 or whatever u called it) so the little hist. brush icon appears in it. Then on the original image paint over the eyes.

    One other thing, if you have neat image or get it can give people a very soft, porcelainy look too.

    Nice photos.

    Very cool pics, they give a soft feeling very well suited for the subject.

    Cute baby too :p

    I like the 5th one the best. It has a very soft warm feeling to me. Photoshop is a great tool.

    Wow! These photos are wonderful! Love the soft innocent look. :sillysmi:

    Wish I could move around in Photoshop so effortlessly. For me, everything is a major accomplishment. But, it'll come with much more practice--not to mention the great tips I'm getting here.
