Video: people - teeth, hair

[Narrator:] In this movie, we'll learn a few more techniques for "retouching people". Open up the image "portrait.jpeg". Press F on your keyboard to go to full screen mode. One of the things that I wanna do with this image is bring out a little bit of the highlights in the hair. Yet, while we're here lets work on the teeth, as well. Image is really nice and warm yet we have a lot of yellow showing up on the teeth. So, let's do in and make a real rough selection around the teeth. I'm not too concerned about the selection here, so make a real rough pass around the teeth.

[Narrator:] In this movie, we'll learn a few more techniques for "retouching people". Open up the image "portrait.jpeg". Press F on your keyboard to go to full screen mode. One of the things that I wanna do with this image is bring out a little bit of the highlights in the hair. Yet, while we're here lets work on the teeth, as well. Image is really nice and warm yet we have a lot of yellow showing up on the teeth. So, let's do in and make a real rough selection around the teeth. I'm not too concerned about the selection here, so make a real rough pass around the teeth.

Once you have done that, "control click" inside of the selection or "right click" and choose "feather" and we'll feather this with the radius of, approximately, two pixels - great! Go to the hue saturation adjustment layer. From the dropdown menu choose yellows. Lower the saturation. Lower, a little bit more than you think you would, on this one. Go to the master channel and bring the lightness up.

We see we have a little bit of a problem over here 'coz our selection wasn't perfect, which is fine. We'll fix that with masking. Click "okay". Let's go ahead and fix our mask. In order to fix our mask, we're gonna view it in the quick mask mode. So, if you would hold down the "shift" option on the Mac and click the mask, or, in the PC, that's gonna be "shift alt" and click the mask. This shows us a quick mask view of our selected area -- the mask that we've created.

And I can see that I have some overlap on certain parts of the face. So, now that I'm painting with black, I'll go in and fix up those areas -- you'd wanna change your brush size based on the area that you're working on in your image -- and lower the opacity for the back of the mouth over here, a bit smoother transition back there -- and then let's shift option click the mask -- on the PC that's shift alt click -- before and after. Okay, much better -- still a few errors we wanna fix up and I'll just go in, in this view mode and paint with black -- fix up the areas that I wanna correct.

Bring a little bit more of the gum in there 'coz some yellow was coming in on that. Okay, "before-after" teeth look a lot better. Remember the trick we looked at before. Copy this layer with the command J or go to layer, new layer of your copy and change the blend mode to soft light. This will bring back some of the depth, some of the texture on the teeth. It's gonna make him a little bit yellow but that's okay. So here we have before and after with that final layer.

Brings back nice depth there and let's look at "before" both of those adjustments. Here are the teeth and here are the teeth after. The white isn't over the top, it's subtle, it's nice -- it looks realistic - great! Of course, if you wanna dial in more de-saturation you could go back to your adjustment layer. Go to yellows and pull even more yellow out and brighten them up more, as well. For now, I'll leave mine as they are, but know that you can go back and adjust those, further. Okay, let's get to the hair.

The hair, I wanna brighten up the hair, I wanna bring out some of the highlights in the hair. So, I'll do this with a curves adjustment layer. Go to the adjustment layer icon -- choose "curves". Brighten up the image, overall. Just focus in on the hair. Okay great, that looks nice. Let's go to the blue channel, warm it up just a little bit, little bit of yellow in there - click "okay". Currently, this is affecting the entire image, which doesn't look good, so I'm gonna fill the mask with black - and I can do that by pressing command I on the Mac, control I on the PC.

Alright, so I'm ready to paint in some highlights. Choose my brush. I'll choose a brush size of, approximately, 60 - take my opacity to - oh, right around 70. Even if this is too much I'll be able to back this off and I'll do that by lowering the opacity of the layer. So let's click through the image, paint in some of these highlights. If we want more, bring up the opacity. If you happen to overlap a little bit like I've done here, intentionally, on the face, you can press the X key which will change the color to black and then you can mask off that area that you have incorrectly revealed with your mask.

Let's look at before and after - great! Really nice! So from this, we're learning that we can use "curves" to brighten specific areas of our images. And, curves can work really good with eyes -- and we learn how to do that in the next movie.
