Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Flamenco project pt. 2: Shape and height, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
I'm glad you are back because I've realized and I actually like what I did in regards to editing this image.…There is one thing that I want to fix and that is the shape.…Right now these legs are really straight; I need a little bit of more of an S-curve there.…So, let's merge our layers.…There are couples of different ways that you can do this.…The easiest is by way of shortcut.…Remember that one on the Mac, Shift+Option+Command+E, PC that's Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E.…Now, I'm going to make a selection of the areas that I want to work on which is this portion of the legs.…I want to copy that to a new layer.…
So, I will go to Layer, New, Layer via Copy.…Now that I've this on its own layer, I call this dress.…Free transform that; Edit, Free Transform.…Then I'm going to right click or Ctrl+click and choose Warp.…What I want to do is just bring out some of the shape here, so I'm going to bring a little bit of shape out here.…Bring it in down this way.…OK, a little bit more curvature on that I think that's going to look better, I will press Return.…
