In this movie, we will look at one more technique for sharpening eyes.…We will be working on the file portrait.psd.…Go and open that one up inside a Photoshop by double clicking it, press F to go to Full Screen view mode.…let's zoom in a little bit on this particular portrait.…Now, here we have this nice portrait.…We want to add a little bit more sharpness to the eyes.…One way that we can do that is by copying the eyes, so go ahead and make a selection of the eyes, I will grab my Marquee Tool…and make a pretty rough selection of this portion of the face and I copy that to New Layer…by pressing Command+J on a Mac or Ctrl+J on a PC.…
We will name this layer eyes.…The reason I selected just a portion of the image is because I don't want to increase my file size dramatically.…The reason I didnt make a good selection is because I'm going to be using masking to mask in the areas that I want to have sharp.…So I'm just making a real rough selection here so that I can move quickly.…Next, navigate to your Filter drop down menu, choose Other and then High Pass.…
