Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Curves adjustment and final image review, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In this final movie what I want to do is add some more contrast to the image.…So I'm going to click on the Adjustment Layer icon and choose Curves and here I'm going to do just a good old fashion S curve.…I'm going to brighten up the whites and I'll bring down the blacks and then I want to save my blacks a little bit,…so I'm going to bring up black points so those blacks, I have a little bit more detail on them.…Although I want to go for this real punchy high contrast image I think that looks really nice.…Click OK let's looks it at our before and after.…Here is before and after, zoom in a little bit so we can see that extra added punch and then you will notice…since a last movie I added another layer set and while that last movie was finishing up,…I added some type just so we can pre-visualize how this will look in the magazine.…
Now, this isn't the exact typography for the magazine, yet it's kind of close.…This helps us visualize how this image will actually work on the magazine cover.…Now, let's take a look at all of our progress from start to finish.…
