Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing eyes, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In this movie, we're going to work on the Eyes just a little bit.…What I want to do with the eyes here is add a little bit of brightness and a little bit of color.…I want to bring in some color that perhaps gets a little bit closer to the color of the shirt here just…to connect those two colors, I think that will be kind of fun.…So, what we're going to do is zoom in on the face and then click on the Adjustment Layer icon and choose Curves…and then add a brightening curve, OK that looks pretty cool, click OK.…Next, click on the Adjustment Layer icon and choose Color Balance, here I'm going to add a little bit of cyan, some blue,…it's going to create a nice Blue that tries to match that shirt color.…
Click OK. Well now, these adjustments do not look good.…How can I make them look good?…We'll click on the top one and then hold on the Shift key and click on the bottom one.…Press Command+G on a Mac, Ctrl+G on a PC, name this Eyes and then hold down the Option key on the Mac, Alt key on the PC.…You remember the Option key is kind of that rebel shortcut, when you press it different things happen.…
