Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving the tonality of the face, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
The next thing I want to take a look at is how we can work on color and tone.…Let's go ahead and zoom in a little bit on this image.…As we do so, one of the things I notice is that the forehead is a bit too bright up here.…So I'm going to darken that up.…I'll do so with Curves.…Here I'll click into my Curves adjustment layer, use the Target Adjustment tool,…and simply click-and-drag down.…I want to darken up this tonal range, these tones here in the top of the image.…Now if I don't want to color shift, what I'll do is I'll change the blending…mode of this layer to Luminosity, so sometimes you'll need to do that, so you're…just getting the darkening tone.…
Other times what you'll need is a little bit of color in there in order to match things up.…Well either way, once we have made these little micro adjustments here, I'm just…going to use one point, just darkening that up just a touch there.…We can go ahead and invert this.…Press Command+I. Next, grab your Brush tool.…You are going to paint with white, with a low opacity.…
