Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying the tone and sharpening, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
All right, at this stage of the project I want to make a few more subtle…adjustments in regards to the overall tone and also sharpen the image and then…eventually evaluate our overall progress.…All right, well, the last adjustment that I want to make here has to do with brightness.…I realize that I want to bring a little bit more brightness into this area of the photograph.…So, I am going to reopen my color and tone folder here. I'll click in the…topmost layer, then I'll click on my Adjustment Layer icon, and I'll choose Curves.…I want to create a new Curves adjustment in case I ever want to go back and…perhaps turn this one on or something like that.…
So here I just have a new Curves adjustment. I am going to brighten this up a little bit.…Again, it's brightening up the entire image, but I am focusing in on the face there.…Next, invert this. Press Command+I on a Mac. Press Ctrl+I on good old Windows.…Then press the B key to select your Brush tool or click on it in the Tools panel.…Then I want to paint in this case with white.…
