good job everybody!!
Yes, a bit on the dark side but a good start!
I'm in a bit of a hurry right now, but, as Ken pointed out, I mostly used The blank Layers technique described in my tutorial ... (for your picture, Blank Layers set to: Darken, Lighten, Overlay) ... Please, let me know if you need more details...
Glad everything got cleared!!
P.S. In cases like this, It is always better to post 'both eyes' since, if nothing else helps, it still could be possible to copy and paste ...
Thanks everyone for working and helping with this image. I tried your tutorial Flora( thank you Ken for the suggestion). Did you lighten the whole side of the face? I am posting my first try!! Please give futher suggestions please.
Phil I am going to study your techniques as well. Thanks Dave for trying . Neb
Yes. I did lighten my picture (Levels). But I had not seen your post of both eyes. Use Shadow/Highlight to balance both sides of the face instead.
Some detail is lost in the rim of the glasses. If you have used a blank layer for the corrections then you will just be able to erase the bit that has spilt onto the glasses frame.
.... I just don't seem to be able to 'catch up' regularly .... sorry ....
Anyway, here is what I did...
First I run the image through Shadow/Highlights to lighten it up a bit ....
... then, usually, in these cases, if possible, I tend to borrow from the other eye, but here I had only one to work on ....so I used Katrin Eismann's 'Copy and Paste Into' technique ....
Here is how I did it:
* Selected an oval of 'good skin' right under the glasses rim and lightly feathered it .... the oval selection was big enough to cover the glare. (Attachment 1)
* With the oval selection still active ... (marching ants around it) I pressed 'CTRL + C' to copy it and CTRL + D to 'deselect'.
* Selected and lightly feathered around the glare .... (Attachment 2)
* With the glare selection still active ... (marching ants around it) I went to Edit > Paste Into (or simply press CTRL + SHIFT + V).
If necessary, I use the 'Move' Tool (Auto select Layer and Show Tranform Controls boxes checked ... on PS top bar) and 'stretch/turn etc.' the pasted object into position ...
* In Attachment 3 you can see the result ... which, of course, must be adjusted for light, shadow, luminosity, noise etc.
Attachment 4 is a snapshot of my 'workflow' for your picture ....
Hope this helps .... and sorry again for my delayed answer ....
