In this movie, we will be working on the file jaime_nelson.psd,…this one comes to us from that Fashion Photographer Jaime Nelson in New York.…Thanks Jaime.…What we are going to do in this image is look at how we can use some advanced color techniques…to enhance the color of the makeup.…Go and open up this file in Photoshop.…Press F to go to Full Screen View Mode and zoom-in a little bit.…Alright, well, here we have the original image and this is the image after some…of the basic retouching and cleanup, before and after.…Now we are ready to begin to work on the face, in particular on the makeup.…
So let's zoom-in a little bit further here, so we can really see the makeup.…The first thing that we are going to do is copy our retouched layer.…So let's go ahead and click-and-drag that to that New Layer icon and let's name this new one color.…Next, we are going to navigate to our Image dropdown menu, choose Mode and go to Lab Color.…We don't want to merge the layers, so don't Merge.…Now we are in the Lab Color space.…
