Re: Glossy Skin

Did a different softer version just to show the steps a little more clearly..
(There are a few combined layers just to show some steps that would normally be hidden/combined)

Hope this helps some..

Thanks a lot - and there is already one question:

the mask of the darker layer is an inverted blue channel mask, right?

but the light mask is "something else" :-)
When I invert the mask of the dark layer I do not get a result like this...or is it inverted and the former white zones are painted black?

Any idea what I´m doing wrong?

Blue channel.. hold down Ctrl, click on thumbnail to make selection (after selection is made, make sure RGB is selected in channels menu)
back to layers menu
click create new fill/adjustment layer
Select Curves (The mask should show up as the blue channel) This will be the light curves layer... paint on the mask with black to cover the hair and eyes
Shft+Ctrl+D (Reselect)
click create new fill/adjustment layer
Select Curves (The mask should show up as the blue channel) This will be the Dark curves layer
Ctrl+I (invert mask)

Adjust curves layers to bring out the highlights and shadows
Also can paint on the masks as needed (as in bringing the hair back like stated above)
