Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Darkening the edge of the eye, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie, we will be learning a wonderful technique for adding edge definition…to eyes in order to increase visual interest.…We are going to be working on two images.…The first one is eye_edges, the second one is jenny.psd.…So on a Mac, hold in the Command key and select both of them.…On a PC, hold down the Ctrl key and select both those images, then Ctrl-click or Right-click and choose Open.…Now, both these files are open inside of Photoshop.…First I've to go to full screen view mode.…We are going to be working on this one first.…If this one isnt open for you, navigate to the window dropdown menu and choose eye_edges.…
Alright, well let's zoom in on this image.…Now, what we want to do here is add a little bit of edge definition to this portion of the eye.…So first things first, we need to select that portion of the eye.…We are actually going to use this eye edge to increase it, We are going to use what we have to make it even better.…Grab your brush tool, we want a real small brush, in my case I'm going to say actually 5 pixels looks pretty nice,…
