Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a catch light, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie, we are working on the file catch_light.psd.…Open that one up in Photoshop, after go to full screen view mode, and then let's zoom in on this image and let's go ahead…and double click the Zoom tool that will take it to you 100% and we have this photograph that we have seen previously.…We have already done some retouching on this image, right?…it is looking nice, except one of the things I need to do, is I need to improve the catch light because I've a catch light…in this left eye over here, at least my left.…On my right, this eye it is a little bit covered.…it is covered by the hair; I don't see much of that.…
So I need to bring that over to add a little bit more life to the image, a little bit more vitality…and this is going to be a really simple technique.…If you ever have catch lights in any images, you can use them in multiple locations.…So what we are going to do here is grab our lasso tool, zoom it a little bit further on the eye.…We are going to make a real rough lasso selection around this catch light.…
