Video: Filling an empty glass with liquid

What we're going to do today is a little basic retouching. So now I can go back to my other file with Hit Enter and it happens.

Filling an empty glass with liquid

What we're going to do today is a little basic retouching. On the screen, we see two goblets. And what we need to do is to put liquid into one of the goblets, actually, water. We're going to put some water in here. Now, if you want to know how it looks, take a glass, look through it and you'll see the things behind it, which, in this case, is a window which is pretty out of focus. Put some water into that glass and you'll see a totally different thing. That's what we're going to create here except we're going to do it real easily. So I happen to have another file.

So I'm going to look at this filled wine glass file here and there we see that we have a glass that has some liquid in it, right there. It's a nice chablis, it looks like. We're going to turn that into water in a minute. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take my Pen tool and I'm going to select this liquid here. So I'm going to start at the bottom here, come up to the top, and pull that up like that and then get a smaller little handle so I can go right across here, and then over to this area right there and then back down to the original spot where I'll pull that out.

Now I kind of go in there and adjust these a little bit, so I can get them just the way I want them, like that, like that and everything else looks pretty good. So now that I have that path, I'm going to say turn it into a selection and I'll go in there and say Copy. So now I can go back to my other file with the empty glasses and say Paste, and it goes right into position. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to put it right there where I want it inside that glass. So now what I would need to do is to adjust it so it looks like it fills that glass properly. So I'm going to hit my Cmd+T to bring up my Transform tools and I'm going to make it a little higher and a little wider on the sides here, just so, it starts to look like it's filling up the glass like that.

Hit Enter and it happens. And there we go. So now, what we're going to do is make that chablis into some water. So we can see that it's kind of on the greenish and yellow side. So I'm going to go into my Adjustments here and look at the Curves. And the Curves is where I'm going to make the adjustment. So right now, it's set to CMYK. So I can see that's a little yellow and a little green. So I'm going to go into my Yellows, and in my Yellows, I'm going to kind of pull them back a little bit. Just pull them back so they're not so strong. Bring this down even more, about like that.

' Kay, hm, it's a little on the pink side as well. So I'm going to go into my Magenta and pull back on those a bit about, about just like that. And click OK, and maybe those yellows could be toned down just a little bit more. There we go. Click OK and there we see that now we have a goblet filled with water. And we see something through which could be what we're seeing back there, it, it is a window and so on, but it was a simple retouching by taking what we needed from another image, and incorporating it Into this image that we needed to retouch.
