Unleashed Edit: Layla in Purple (speed edit version)

By Charlotte Reeves

This "speed edit" is sped up around 40x from the full 35 minute editing tutorial, which is available in our Unleashed Education Premium Membership and Editing Unleashed Membership.

Chocolate brown Layla looks gorgeous staring up from that carpet of purple blossoms. The symmetry is nearly perfect and the focus is perfectly on those pretty eyes.

But there’s a couple of problems. Where has all the colour gone? And what can we do about that obnoxiously bright tag and collar?

The good news is, all the colour is still there lurking in the RAW file, just waiting to be extracted. And Charlotte also has a great Photoshop technique to share to help with the collar and tag. Problems fixed!
