Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing shadows, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
All right, now that we've cleaned up all these small details, we're ready to move on to the shadows.…Before we do so, I just noticed that I neglected to retouch these little…flyaway hairs up here.…They're pretty small, but nonetheless I really want to clean those up.…So on the same layer let's press the S key to select our Clone Stamp tool.…We'll lower the opacity here just a little bit and what we're going to then…do is Option+Click or Alt+Click some nice good background color there and…just remove this content and again they're really small. You might not even…be able to see those.…But it would just bother me if I left those in.…
So let me go ahead and retouch those, and then also just a little tiny blemish…down here on the lip that needed some touchup work.…Now that we've done that, let's work on shadows.…To work on our shadows let's merge everything to the top.…We'll use a shortcut to do that.…On a Mac you press Shift+Option+ Command+E. On Windows you press…Shift+Alt+Ctrl+E. I'm going to go ahead and name this layer shadows.…
