Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: In this video, Mahalo's Photoshop expert Justin Zagri shows how to give someone a tan. Photoshop Tutorial - Giving You a Tan --------------------------------------------------------------------- After receiving feedback from his client, Justin learned that the character on the far right in the movie poster looks too pale compared to the others. He needs a tan. To do this, first open the Smart Object of that character. Select the Pixel Mask layer and Duplicate it by pressing Ctrl+J (Command+J for Mac). Delete the mask from that layer by dragging it to the trash icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. With the layer still selected, turn on Quick Mask Mode. Zoom in on the character's face. Grab the Brush Tool, make sure the color is black and begin painting your character's face. You'll notice that what you paint is red. This doesn't affect the image at all. Once the face is completely painted, turn off Quick Mask Mode. This will select the character's face. Right-click on the selection and choose Select Inverse. Click Add layer mask at the bottom of the Layers panel. This will create a mask around the character's face. Now you can make changes to the face without affecting the rest of the image. Navigate to the top menu bar and click Image -- Adjustments -- Levels. Adjust the sliders to bring down the skin tone of the face. Try adjusting the Color Balance, too. You can find it also under Image -- Adjustments. Finally, grab the Brush Tool again. With the color white and the mask ?selected, brush over the character's eyes and eyebrows to remove any tan effect. Read more by visiting our page at:
