Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving the eyes, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
At this stage, let's go ahead and take a look at how we can add a bit more…sparkle to the eyes.…We also though, want to keep in mind that we've already brightened those eyes up…pretty significantly.…So, let's zoom in on the eyes here, and what I want to do is I want to merge all…of my underlying layers to the very topmost layer, so that I can apply some…sharpening to the eyes.…In order to do that, we'll use a shortcut.…On a Mac, it's Shift+Option+Command+E; on Windows that's Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E.…Now, I know that that shortcut is a bit of a mouthful, but nonetheless, it's really…helpful, because it allows us to combine all that we've done to this top…layer, and that's pretty critical for sharpening and for the effect that we…want to create here.…
I'm going to zoom out for a moment, in order just to evaluate what we have.…Well, we've increased our file size significantly here, because we have all…of this information.…What I want to do is make a selection of just the eyes and delete everything else.…
