Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- Another set of tools that we can use…to manipulate the color…that is already on the canvas…is located here in the tool palette.…It's the dodge tool, the burn tool,…and the sponge tool.…The dodge tool is really handy…for raising the contrast in certain image areas,…so if I apply it here, you see that I can easily…amplify the contrast of these colors here.…
This tool is frequently used to create…fire or glow effects,…magic effects,…and stuff like this.…This is really helpful in creating…really glowing and striking effects.…We can adjust the way it works…here in this little pull-down.…We can choose to enhance the shadows,…the midtones, or the highlights,…but the highlights is normally the…best choice when we use it to…ramp up the contrast in our image.…
Then we have the burn tool,…which is the counterpart to the dodge tool.…Again, we can choose to manipulate…the shadows, the midtones, or the highlights.…I will choose the midtones now and…that way we…darken certain areas of the image,…but note that the light areas are…not touched by this manipulation.…
