Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing body shape , part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
Welcome back, we are going to continue to work on this image and in this movie,…we are going to work on adding some contour and shape.…We are going to create a new layer, we are going to do that by way of shortcut…on a Mac it is Shift+Command+N, on the PC, Shift+Ctrl+N.…We will call this contour, choose a Blend Mode of Soft Light and so a Soft-Light-neutral gray, 50% click OK.…Alright, we are going to do some Burning and Dodging here.…let's select the Brush tool, press B on the keyboard.…We are going to take our Opacity down to about 50% there; we are also going to take our layer Opacity down as well.…
I'm going to take this to about 50% here and I make a pretty small brush and what I want to do is just bring out the shadows…to add a little bit of shape to this portion of the image here.…So I'm going to go ahead and darken these shadows, and I'm going to slowly build these up.…I'm also going to be able to blur this out.…So if we go too far with this, that's OK.…We will be able to blur this and bring it back a little bit.…
