Welcome back. We are ready to move on with our skin softening. The next step that we'll take will help increase contrast and at the same time maintain some of the texture. Because this is a fashion retouch, we're okay with softening the skin, yet we still want some texture there. So the next steps we'll take will help us maintain texture and increase contrast. There's a folder titled "Gray Scale" and that folder shows us what we'll be doing. You can use that as a reference. We'll replicate that folder though now. Go ahead and create a new layer set by clicking on the New Layer Set folder icon.

Welcome back. We are ready to move on with our skin softening. The next step that we'll take will help increase contrast and at the same time maintain some of the texture. Because this is a fashion retouch, we're okay with softening the skin, yet we still want some texture there. So the next steps we'll take will help us maintain texture and increase contrast. There's a folder titled "Gray Scale" and that folder shows us what we'll be doing. You can use that as a reference. We'll replicate that folder though now. Go ahead and create a new layer set by clicking on the New Layer Set folder icon.

And name this folder "Gray Scale," New. And we're going to use that shortcut again just when you thought you were done using the shortcut to merge all the layers to a new layer, on a MAC Shift, Option Command N, E. On PC, Shift Control Alt N, E. Name this layer "Gray Scale Soft Light." Okay. We're going to use the channel mixer here to convert this layer to gray scale. Go down to the adjustment layer icon and choose Channel Mixer.

In the channel mixer dialogue window check Monochrome and then what we need to know is subjectively dial in the type of black and white image, the type of tonality we want. So I know for this particular image 66 and 24 green works pretty well. Click Okay. Currently this is affecting every layer underneath it. We want it to only affect that layer immediately underneath it. And we can do that by creating what's called a layer clipping mask.

Let me show you what I mean. If you hold town the Option or Alt key and hover between these two layers, so just move your mouse between the two layers, you'll notice that the icon will change. You'll see the two circles that overlap. When you press your mouse button when that icon is visible, you'll create a layer clipping mass and what that's doing is saying I want this layer only to affect the layer immediately underneath it. So go ahead and do that. Hold down the Option Alt key, click between the two layers. Excellent. Next step, target the layer gray scale soft light.

Change the blend mode to Soft Light. Here's where you'll see the magic happen. Excellent. So we increase contrast and we also brought back a little bit of skin texture. Looks really good. Good work on this image so far. We'll continue working on this image in the next movie.
