Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Fixing details and brightness, part of Learning Photoshop Portrait Retouching.
- [Instructor] In this movie I want to share with you…a technique that you can use…in order to smooth or soften skin.…For this technique we'll be creating a few layers,…we'll put those layers inside of a layer group,…and work with a custom or hand painted mask.…So it involves a few steps,…and the first step is to copy the background layer twice.…To do that, press Command + J on a Mac,…or Control + J on Windows, two times.…We'll go ahead and name the top layer texture or details.…
Next, we'll name the layer underneath,…softness or smoothing,…'cause that's exactly what we'll be doing on each layer.…Now let's first work on our soft layer…and we'll go ahead and turn off…the texture layer above,…and let's also turn off the background layer…just for a moment, so that we're sure…we're just on this one layer,…this is all we're working with, is this one right here.…Next we want to zoom in on the image,…and here I want to zoom in really close,…so I can see all the details that we have in the photograph.…We can see all the pores in the skin and whatnot.…
