Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing the overall color and tone, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
At this stage of the project, what I want to do is go ahead and organize my…layers, then work a little bit on the overall color and tone.…So first let's click in our topmost layer. Shift+Click in the underlying…layer, then press Command or Ctrl+G, and let's name this group face - tone.…Because these are the adjustments that we made to the face, some pretty subtle adjustments there.…Next, color and tone.…Well, there are many different ways that we can modify or enhance color and tone.…One technique that I want to try is to use Color Balance.…So here we'll click on our Adjustment Layer icon, then we'll choose Color Balance.…
Now with Color Balance, we can make some real dramatic changes.…We can swing these sliders one way or another to come up with some distinct looks.…Yet many times it looks like the color is sitting on top of the image.…It's not embedded into the overall tonal structure of the photo.…So what you can do to have a bit of fun is to try in some blending modes.…For example, let's experiment with the blending mode of Soft Light.…
