Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding shape and dimension, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In the previous movie we looked at how we could enhance shape by actually liquefying pixels.…In the next couple of movies I want to look at how we can enhance shape by burning and dodging.…So, let's go ahead and merge the shape layer down press Command + E on the Mac, Ctrl + E on the PC and then Ctrl click…or right click the Cleanup Layer and choose Duplicate Layer, let's name this one screen.…Yup, that's right, we're going to use a screen blend mode, this is going to be pretty cool, check this out.…So we'll go down to the Screen Blend Mode, now that doesn't look good at all,…yet we can fix this and we're going to make this look amazing.…
Next, we'll click on the Add Layer Mask icon, while holding on the Option key on a Mac, Alt key on a PC.…Now we're going to grab our Brush tool and we're going to paint with a nice a little Opacity, it's right, 30% of Opacity.…What I'm looking to do here is to just bring in some brightness and I'm going to try…to follow the brightness that I'm seeing in the image.…
