Everything being discussed here so far can be considered a great way of achieving the end result. The important consideration here is flexibility. If you use a GRAY layer in an overlay/soft mode, you can dodge and burn with white or black till your heart's content.. The problem is, that if your dodging and burning are on the same layers-- no flexibility... If you REALLY wanna get your hands dirty and do things the smart way... Here's a method that I developed to help get the job done with the most flexibility and control...

After I remove the pimples and do light spotting on an image, I create a layer set and call it "D&B". In that layer set I create(in this order from bottom to top) adjustment layers... Curve(LIGHTEN), Curve(DARKEN),HUE(DESAT),CURVE(CONTRAST). On the LIGHTEN curve, I lighten the mids and fill the layer with black to hide. With this layer, I'll paint with white at about 1-5% depending to lighten dark spots on the skin. on the DARKEN curve I darken the mids and fill with black as well so that I can use this to darken light spots on the skin-- the goal here is to even out the skin tones. The HUE layer is used to desaturate the image. Lord knows we get tired of looking at a monitor. Desaturating helps my eyes when I'm working on fine detail. The CONTRAST curve is helpful to display the dark/light spots better-- again for my old eyes... I select a point on the CONTRAST curve that represents the dark/light spotting of the skin and I pump an S curve in it to bring out the contrast so I can see it better... After zooming in to about elevendy billion percent to work on the fine points of the skin, I begin to zoom out and use larger brushes... When I'm finished and happy with the results. I turn off the CONTRAST and HUE curves and VIOLA.... total control. Now you can color adjust your little heart out and not effect the dodging and burning. You've got total control of the dark and light curves and you can easily revisit them with your little paint brush.


Are you ppl even trying?

I'm not in a good mood this morning, maybe that's why I think this IS REALLY REALLY REALLY ANNOYING!!

Have a nice day everybody

Exactly that (I've quoted her already ya know?)

So... you really need a Tutorial? That's the most detailed explanation I've read about this technique

You have other ways to aproach it, but it's all the same concept.
And D&B (using one technique or the other) takes hours, a lot of hard work.
Good luck, it's the only way to go!

Re: So... no one is gonna upload that D&B tutorial, wth?

It is true a tutorial with pictures etc will not really add any more value to the words already spoken. Look for any doge and burn tutorial/method and apply what you see there to what you have read here.

Basically things with the same essential color only show up because the light falling on them creates shadows and equally it creates highlights. Reduce both and there is your method.

I have watched it done and it takes a long time, it is a simple technique that requires a lot of patience and great resolution original (if you want to do it right)

May be it would make me upset if I could understand it... but english is not my native lenguaje and I really don't know what you mean by: i don't mind because you're so far away from me

You can't find the post because it's not longer there ... he edited for some reason.

But Shelby quoted him, so you can read it from her quote.... what's the problem, hun?

Your beautifull name relay softness why are you so aggressive?
