Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Project 1 pt. 1: Cleaning up skin with Heal and Dodge, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
Welcome. In this movie, we will be working on the file skin1.psd.…Go ahead and double click that one in Bridge, to open it up in Photoshop and press F to go to full screen view mode…and then double click the Zoom tool to take the image to 100%.…Then press the space bar and click and drag to reposition the image.…We are going to work on softening the skin of this particular image and we are going to start off on a black and white image,…so that we can learn some techniques that we will later apply to color images.…Well, first things first, we need to clean up the small skin variations or small blemishes and then work on some wrinkles.…
So let's go and create a new layer and let's do that by way of shortcut.…On a Mac Shift+Command+N on a PC, Shift+Ctrl+N and we will call this layer basic retouch.…Next, we are going to select the good old spot healing brush and I'm going to zoom in even further.…Command+Plus on the Mac, Ctrl+Plus on the PC and I'm going to go ahead and just work on the small little blemishes.…
