[Tutorial] Effectively remove shadow from picture
Here is a small tutorial - " how to remove shadow from picture "
there are other techniques but i think this one is most effective.
load picture in Photoshop.
duplicate the picture
change mode to grayscale (not original , only the copy)
apply gaussian blur with radius value 6.
now select original picture.
now click on -- select > load selection (channel - gray ,
select invert box)
now you can see the selection of shadow, here you can add or subtract area with lasso tool,
now click on edit > fill (content mode-- 50% gray, blending mode-- color dodge)
now set the opacity on the fill window as you desire, it may be 100% or 20 to 100 % ,
Now click OK and see the difference.
if it help you, let me know..
any one with better method to remove shadow?

I think your technique is very similar (if not the same) as the one Katrin Eisman describes in her book as a "fill flash" technique. I've been using it for quite a while now and have gotten great results with it! Thanks for bringing it to our attention again. It's a great technique and I think should be in everyone's "tool kit."
I found this method in a monthly magazine's tips and tricks section about 2 years ago.
I dont know that it is from Katrin Eisman book.
I am looking for that book..
could you please mention the full name of the book and the publisher.
good photoshop tutorial book's are very rare in my place.
Re: Effectively remove shadow from picture
Thanks for the tip. I'm really new to using photoshop and it's taking me a while to learn the program. is there any kind of guide I can use to learn the basics. I tried to follow your directions but I don't know how to change a image to greyscale besides... Image>mode>Grayscale and that changes that flatten all the layers. Thanks for any help in advance.
