"HOW IS THIS SET DIFFERENT TO OTHER PHOTOSHOP ACTIONS I ALREADY OWN?"
This Photoshop action set has taken over a year to develop, and is designed specially for the most perfect editing of toddler and cake smash sessions. This set is independent of the LSP Newborn or Portrait Photoshop Actions and is designed specifically and meticulously for the challenges and joys presented with a toddler photo shoot.
If you already own other LSP Actions, such as the Signature Newborn, you may notice that some of the action titles are a little similar. BUT no actions are duplicated (aside from the usual sections Social Resize and Select and Fix, which features in all main LSP action sets).
Though some are named similarly (there are only so many ways one can say "brighten up face" without becoming confusing!) the actual commands and settings differ within and are crafted to best suit toddler skin.
"IS TODDLER SKIN EDITING DIFFERENT TO NEWBORN EDITING?"
Though at a glance, you wouldn't think skin editing should be too different between newborn babies and one year olds, but the seasoned pros will tell you otherwise!
The heavy reds, deep jaundice and purples of a newborn are not seen in a baby 6m+. The tonal variety needed for high end and perfect editing of a toddler is somewhat different. Newborn toning actions can be heavy handed and appear green/yellow or gray on a toddler's delicate skin.
Not to mention the skin texture is entirely different: Newborns tend to have small scratches, milia (the little white bumps over the nose), neonatal cephalic pustulosis (baby acne - spots) and flaking skin of varying degrees over the wrists, ankles and body. One year olds and toddlers generally do not present with any of these typical newborn skin challenges, in fact most have beautiful translucent skin, but they do come with their own specific set of issues that needs to take a different editing approach in comparison with newborns or adults, for the best quality results.
Toddlers can have little bumps and grazes as they get mobile, orange noses from baby food, dry red patches over the skin. Eyes and noses can be a very specific red from some pre-session tears or teething. Skin can look blotchy and feather-mottled, especially over the arms and legs. Delicate toddler skin tones are a totally different tonal depth to newborn or adult skin, which you may have noticed already when editing.
This set contains everything you will need when it comes to cake smash editing. From color matching the cake and decor, to fixing rumpled seamless backgrounds, to fairy lights, cake smash finishers, seperate black and whites, a batch editing section and SOOOO much more!
When editing newborn use the Signature Newborn Photoshop Actions and use this Cake Smash Cute Photoshop Action Set for editing cake smash, first birthday, and toddler photo sessions for the best, most accurate and highest quality results. For Adults, use the LSP Portrait & Studio Vogue.
