After a curves adjustment, I created a new layer. Painting over the chocolate with a soft brush set to about 10% opacity. Click the alt button to change color as you paint the various tones.

Re: Im Needing Advice /Held

Hi

As far as software, have you tried Photoshop Elements 6.0 ? It's a lot less expensive than the full Photoshop, and it will go a long way to help with Photo editing. You might find Verson 5.0 even cheaper on e-bay. 6.0 has a few more upgrades and I think it's well worth the difference. Check on the Adobe site for a free trial offer, if they still have it available for download.

There are a lot of skilled people on this site that might know of other software that is free or near free, but I am very happy with Elements.

Hope this will help.

Hankw

Re: Im Needing Advice /Held

This is my try. I use Photoshop CS3. As there was a difference in the eyes, I am posting a retouch with both choices.

Re: Im Needing Advice /Held

I used Healing brush tool to remover sopts of choclate and Level Adjustment layer to retain the light and shadows. I've not used any third tool.

Photoshop is very-very good software for it.
