Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving skin mini project, part of Learning Photoshop Portrait Retouching.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we'll look at another example…of how we can clean up the skin and also deal with…the brightness or the shine on the skin.…This comes from a real world project…where I put these two photographs together of my friend.…Just sent them to the client,…the client said, great, we want to use these.…What I neglected to do was to zoom in on the photograph.…If we zoom in on this image,…here we have a high-resolution file.…So when we zoom in really close,…what we see is that the skin needs a little bit of work…and there's some shine here that I hadn't accounted for.…
So how are we going to fix that?…We'll begin by working on a retouching.…Create a New Layer, and I'll name this one, Skin.…Next, press the J key to select the Spot Healing Brush…and then you can press Shift + J…to toggle through your retouching tools here…until you have the right tool,…which in our case is Spot Healing Brush tool…you want to use a nice small brush.…You always want to make sure you're sampling all Layers…so that you can do your retouching up to the topmost Layer…
