Oh my god, my photos are too ugly. How do I post to Moments? Why did acne pop up suddenly on the left? It was fine yesterday. What should I do when I will take pictures? My skin is a little dull, and the dark circle seems to be very serious, but I need to take ID photos later!
Are these words familiar to you? Think about it carefully. They seem to happen in our lives all the time. But if you are still troubled by these problems after learning Photoshop, then you really need to read this article!
Look at the picture above. The left is the original picture, and the right is the picture processed by Photoshop. In this way, is the difference too obvious? Only the shortcomings of the face were removed, and lipstick was applied, without damaging any details of the original portrait. The whole person instantly became ten times more beautiful!
There is only one Photoshop difference between you and becoming beautiful! Of course, if you forget to make up or don’t have time to make up, you can also use Photoshop to customize a set of makeup for you.
Let’s take a look at how this change is accomplished.
- Remove Spots
1. Open the material picture. Use the shortcut key—”CTRL+J” to copy a layer.
2. Click on the Channels. You can see that in addition to the RGB channel, there are four color channels. Click on each channel in turn and find that the spots on the face are clearest when the blue channel is selected.
Select the blue channel and copy a blue channel. Select the blue channel copy. Click in sequence the menu bar—filter—other—high pass.
Set the radius value to 31.8 pixels.
Remember that the channel is the selection area. It is independent and attached to the original image to save the black and white image of the selected area. It’s defaulted that white part means it is selected and the black part means it is not in the range.
The high pass in this step is to display the spots more clearly. Only when the display is clear, the computer can more accurately calculate the parts to be selected and process.
3. Click in sequence the menu bar—image—calculation. Modify the blending mode to strong light. Click OK.
4. You can see that there is an additional Alpha channel. Hold down the ctrl key and click the thumbnail of the Alpha channel with the mouse to generate a selection, and click the RGB layer to return to the layer panel.
5. It can be seen that the good skin and spots on the image have been clearly divided by ant lines. Execute the menu bar-select-invert to select the spot area.
6. Use the shortcut key—”CTRL+J” to copy the selection into a new layer. Click in sequence the menu bar-image-adjustment-curve to modify the brightness of the spots to blend with the surrounding skin.
7. Now we can see that the spots on the face have faded a lot. Click on the spot layer. Select the brush tool, and adjust the hardness and opacity of the brush. Use the brush tool to erase the eyes, eyebrows, and hair. Reduce their exposure. Right-click and choose Merge Down.
8. Select the Spot Healing Brush Tool in the toolbar, and smear the spots on the face. As you can see, the spots disappeared after application. It should be noted that the size of the brush cannot be too large, because the Spot Healing Brush Tool stamps the detected surrounding colors on the stain.
If the brush is too large and the colors are too mixed, the computer cannot correctly recognize the skin color around the spots, and the spot healing will not be completed.
- Adjust Brightness
9. In order not to make the entire picture look overexposed, we execute the menu bar-image-adjustment-curve to darken the entire image.
Execute the menu bar-select-color range. Click on the highlight part of the face. Adjust the tolerance, so that the entire highlight part is loaded into the selection. Click OK.
10. Use the shortcut key—”CTRL+J” to copy the highlight layer. Execute menu bar-image-adjustment-curve to brighten the highlight part. Double-click the name of the layer and name it with the “Highlight”.
- Trim the Details of the Facial Features
11. Right-click the third tool in the left toolbar. Select the Lasso Tool to select the white part of the eye. Right-click the selected area and select the Feather. Then modify the feather radius to 3 pixels. Copy the white part of the eye.
Execute the menu bar-image-adjustment-contrast. Modify the value of contrast to -50 to remove the noise from the eyes. Select the curve, and make it brighter. Name this layer eyes.
12. Select the layer 1. Use the lasso tool to select the eyeball and modify the feather radius to 3 pixels. Use the shortcut key—”CTRL+J” to copy the eyeball layer. Select the brush tool. Modify the foreground color to white, and modify the brush setting.
Then click or click and drag on the highlight part of the eyeball. Brighten up the highlight part of the eyeball, making the whole eye more attractive.
13. Use the lasso tool to select the lips. Modify the feather radius to 10 pixels, and copy a layer.
Execute the menu bar-image-hue saturation to adjust the color of lips. Make it looks ruddy and shiny.
14. Execute the menu bar-filter-blur-Gaussian blur. Modify the radius value to 3.8 pixels.
15. Execute the menu bar-Image-Adjustment-Brightness and Contrast, and adjust the contrast to 56. Highlight the highlights in the lips.
15. Click the uppermost layer with the mouse. Click the fourth symbol in the lower right corner, and select color balance.
Set the first column to -20 to minus a little red; set the third column to 20 to add a little blue. Select the brightness/contrast. Set the contrast value to 30, and increase the contrast a bit.
