Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Project 5 pt. 1: Improving color and tone, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
What we are going to do is work on this image and look at how we can enhance the color as well as add a little bit shine…to the skin, add that high-end look to the skin with this particular image.…Well, first things first, let's work on the color and tone.…Go and open up this file on Photoshop, I've to go to Full Screen View Mode…and then double-click the Zoom tool to take it to 100% so we can see the image.…let's take a look at the original file.…Heres the original, the before, heres the image after it is been retouched, some great retouching here,…little bit of body sculpting, little bit of blemish removal, little bit of soften of the skin…and the image is looking really good, it is using all the techniques we've already learned.…
We have a layer above titled color, let's turn that layer on and zoom-out a little bit so we can see entirety of the image,…I'm going to zoom-out just a little bit here, that looks pretty nice.…I'm going to be clicking this layer titled color and I'm going to navigate…to a place we haven't gone before, it is Image, Mode and Lab Color.…
