Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Using curves and blending modes for tone, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
In order to further work on the overall tone, in this movie, we're going to take…a look at how we can use curves and blending modes to either darken or brighten.…Here I'll go ahead and click on the Adjustment Layer icon, and I'll choose…Curves, and this first curves adjustment, I'm going to change to Multiply.…Now that darkening effect is way too intense.…No big deal. Simply press Command+I or Ctrl+I to invert your mask.…Next, grab your Brush tool.…You want to paint with an opacity…that's really low, say 10%.…We're just going to start to paint across a few areas that we would like to darken up.…
So, go ahead and paint across the eyebrows, just adding a little bit more of an accent there.…I think that's kind of nice.…I am also going to paint over the ears just a little bit, bringing down…some of these highlights, so, not quite so prominent, because we know that…our eye goes to areas of brightness, and also areas of contrast.…So just reducing a bit of that in a couple of different ways, and we'll go over…
