Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing hot spots, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie, we are going to learn a really important retouching technique, and that is how do we deal with hotspots.…This is a spot on peoples faces that are just too shiny.…we are going to work on this image reis_hot_spots.…Go and open that one up inside a Photoshop.…I've to go to Full-Screen View mode and then zoom in a little bit.…We have this great photograph from one of my students Chris Reese (ph).…Thanks a ton Chris.…One of the things you will notice is that there are some bright spots on the forehead, on the nose,…on this part of the cheekbone, and what we want to do is bring those down.…Now, in this particular case, those hotspots arent horrible.…
Although, it would be nice to bring those down just a bit.…What we are trying to do here is simulate what would have happened, how if there would have been a makeup artist,…they put more powders in this portion of the head.…That wouldn't have been as shiny.…you will notice that this isnt as shiny as the nose because there's more makeup up here…because that absorb the light versus reflect to the light.…
