Erika Thornes goes over several ways to remove fly away hairs in a photo she’s editing of a little girl. Erika uses the spot healing brush in replace as well as using the clone stamp in Adobe Photoshop.
- This is my niece Stella.…She is a great kid,…and she wanted to give her grandparents…a picture for the holidays.…Unfortunately it was really really cold…the day that we had the opportunity to go out to the park,…and we weren't able to convince her to wear a jacket…so she's shivering a little bit…and her hair is a little out of control,…and since we didn't have time to do a re shoot,…I thought we'd edit this photo…so that we can give a nice copy…to her parents and grandparents.…Now, we're going to be doing a lot of hair retouching here,…and I say that the hair retouching is not so magic,…the other things were kind of magic…because there's a variety of techniques…to clean up hair on a kid,…and they're very similar to all the techniques…that are used on an adult.…
But let's go through those tools…and let's get this cleaned up.…Alright, we're going to zoom it.…Just like before,…I'm going to use the spot healing brush…and I'm going to actually keep it on darken mode.…Now, normally we'd have it on normal or replace…but I've been finding on with things like this…
