IMAGE SE­LEC­TION AND WHITE BALANCE Us­ing the eye­drop­per tool in Light­room, se­lect the image with the grey card and click on the grey card us­ing the eye­drop­per. This will change your white balance. Sync the set­tings to the fi­nal image you’ve se­lected to edit.

RE­MOVE UN­WANTED EL­E­MENTS Us­ing Pho­to­shop, clean up the image. Use Con­tent-Aware Fill to re­move the larger items, like the pho­tog­ra­pher’s feet. Use the patch tool to se­lect skin flakes and spots to re­move. How­ever, leave some skin flakes or the baby will look plas­tic!

RED SKIN RE­DUC­TION Next we’ll do some hue and sat­u­ra­tion ad­just­ments in Pho­to­shop. Se­lect the red chan­nel and take the Hue slider down to -180 un­til the ar­eas con­tain­ing red show as pur­ple. Move the colour hue, se­lect­ing the skin, and ad­just the Hue slider to +8. Mask the ad­just­ment on the lips so they stay red.

LIQUIFY As a last step, you can tidy up the shape of the wrap us­ing Pho­to­shop’s Liquify fil­ter and us­ing the Push tool to gen­tly ad­just any el­e­ments of the image that are not in the right place.
