Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Project 5 pt. 2: High-end skin color, tone, and shine, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In the previous movie, we worked on this file ben_bassu.tif, we will be working on this file in this movie as well,…go ahead and open that one up and zoom in on the image.…What I want to do in this movie, is work on the tone, I want to add a little bit of visual interest to the skin.…So we are going to just start off by working on the highlights.…Now, there are a couple of different ways that we can grab the highlights of the skin,…then next we are going to work on the shadow.…So let's look at our first way.…We are going to go down to this color layer and go to Select Color Range and we are going to click on one of the highlights.…In this case, the highlight on the leg that will work well for me and this won't be a perfect selection…that will be a good starting point, we will revise this or modify this further, click OK.…
Next, we are going to navigate to the adjustment layer icon and chose Curves and we are going to brighten up this area.…Now, in this case, it looks really white and strange, that's OK, click OK.…
