Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving color, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
Here we want to take a look at how we can bring out some of the colors in order…to add to this overall surreal type of a look.…Let's zoom into the face and one of the areas that would be nice to work on is…the makeup color on the fingernails and also surrounding the eyes.…So here let's click on our adjustment layer icon and choose Color Balance.…Now with Color Balance what I am going to do is increase the Cyan and the Blue amount.…I am going to do this quite significantly.…Then I will go ahead and take this to a blending mode of Color.…A lot of times when you do that it will help you have a bit more texture in the image.…
Now here we want to invert the mask. Press Command+I to do so.…Grab your Brush tool, and then with your Brush tool what we are going to do is…paint with white over these areas.…We are just going to bring this color into this area of the photograph.…We will go ahead and do that over here on this side as well.…If we make any mistakes, we will just press the X key and mask that out.…
