Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing hair highlights, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
Welcome back.…In this movie, we're going to work on some of the highlights in the image.…What we're going to do that is by copying the retouched layer by clicking and dragging it to the New Layer icon…and then we'll name this new layer highlights or just high for highlights.…Next we'll select the Patch tool -- yes, the good old Patch tool, and then we're going to make a selection of this highlight here.…Make sure our Patch is on Source, so we can click and drag to a nice clean source, and then we want to hide those edges.…So we're going to press Command+H on a Mac, Ctrl+H on a PC and go to Edit, Fade Patch Selection.…
Now I can dial in how far I want this to go and I can just knock down that highlight, just a little bit, right about there.…I think that looks really nice, before and after, click OK.…Again, before and after, just a nice way to take that down.…Let's work on a couple of other highlight areas and we'll work on this one on the shoulder.…I'll select that by clicking and dragging around that and move to a new location.…
