Re: How do I add more curls?

Hi... you could always try the clone stamp tool.
You could aslo use the Marquee tool and select
the curls you want and jump it to a new layer and
move it to where you want it to be. And mask it in
to make it look like it was there. Well thats what I do.

Hope it helps. Good Luck

Kezzy

I would suggest the curling tool, it's in the same group of tools and the comb and straightners. You could even run the perm filter on it and it will do it all for you as if by magic. Photoshop's dead easy.

Lolli try this tut and see how you get on
layer masks may seem complicated but they are not and are invaluable and well worth learning in fact you have probably spent more time googling than what it would take to learn

What I would do:
- select existing curl
- copy and paste - that results in a new layer
- move to the place where you want to add a curl
- transform the curl, maybe also mirror, rotate etc. (transform has some extra options like waves, bows etc. which can be modified or can be done manually) Too extreme changes makes the hair look fake, as the thickness changes.
- add a layermask (on bottom of the layerpallette - looks like a sheet with a hole inside), fill with black (makes layer unvisible) paint with white where it should be seen
- finally some cloning in an extra layer above
- do these steps wherever you want to add curls

If you have additional pictures of these curls in other pictures from different angles or other, similar curls, the steps would be same, but could lead to better results.

Good look!

P.S. I am shure there is no perm filter ;-)
