Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Cleaning up hair, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In this movie we'll be working on cleaning up the hair and just by way of interest,…it's kind of fun to see what we've actually done so far.…If we turn off the black and white layer, we can see all the retouching we've done, all those little spots.…So again, we're just hitting these really small spots.…Alright, we need to do some more small detail work.…Yet, we have to work on the flyaway hairs.…Let's work on the easy stuff first.…We're going to move to the top part of the image and then zoom in a little bit on this top part…of the image and we're going to create a new layer.…So let's click on the New Layer icon and we'll call this layer r2 for retouch 2.…
Next, we're going to grab the Clone Stamp tool and we're going…to make the brush a little bit bigger by pressing the right bracket key.…My opacity is about 40%.…That should actually be pretty good.…I'll take it perhaps a little higher that I think that might even be better.…What I want to do is just minimize these flyaways and eventually we're going to bring this background to pure white.…
