Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving hair tone, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In the previous movie, we worked on the image hair gap and tone, and we'll be working on that same image here so go ahead…and open it up if you don't have it open. I have it open in Photoshop so I'm just going to jump over to Photoshop.…What I want to do in this movie is look at how we can work on the tone in the hair.…This is going to be a pretty simple technique yet it leads to some pretty profound results. Click on the Adjustment Layer icon and…choose Curves. Next, what I want you to do is to add a contrast curve so we have some real nice contrast. …We want to look at the hair and the tone of the hair.…
Now at this stage, one of things I see is that it's shifting the color of the image. I like the contrast, I like the density…all those things, but I don't necessarily like the color that I'm getting so let's click OK.…Invert the mask. Press Command+I to invert that mask on a Mac,…Control+I on a PC. Then with your Brush tool,…grab white as your color,…And then paint where you want to bring in more color and tone.…
