Edit Me Summer Show Off- Freckles!

I followed a tutorial on how to make freckles pop. Since Freddy has just a few of them.. hee hee and Tiny has such cute ones on his nose. I couldn't wait to try it out.

I used Photoshop Elements 8.0.
First I converted to B&W
Adjusted my levels to lighten up the picture and I increased my blacks
I added a blue tint with an occupancy around 10%, then flattened my image
I copied my background layer and selected my top layer
I selected Filter > Other > Highpass and then selected soft light
I did this a second time with a higher radius, I didn't make masked layer like the tutorial (because I don't know how)
I flattened my image and presto freckles in all their glory.

The Before & After

Here is the tutorial I followed by Maryanne Gobble.

Your edit is terrific! While the original is already great, the black and white conversion makes it outstanding.
