How to Fix Teeth in Adobe Photoshop CC
Hi there, this video is all about tidying up teeth. There's nothing wrong with these teeth but we're just going to enhance them a little bit like that. So off on trying to do it suddenly ish. Let's look at how to do that now. All right to get started, go to your own nine folder and then there's there's one called teeth. No one from free stocks dot org. Thanks. Free stocks like we did in the last tutorial, we need to duplicate this layer. Okay, just so that we can turn back any work that we've done. Just lower the capacity of it a little bit. I call this one, retouch on this retouched layer. If you've worked on it before, I'm going to zoom in on my teeth here. If you've done it before and you just use straight to the dodge tool, you'll probably be fine protect tones on and it does this kind of goes this weird red color, not good. So I'm gonna do before you go into the dodge tool. What you wanna do is you want to use the d saturation tool, so, sponge tool set to de saturate you do satura...
te them first, then you dodge them. Now the flow in this case 50%. It's going to be nice, brush size something that fits in here. I'm gonna zoom in. What am I at? I met up our size of 50 click hold and we're trying to make the teeth gray if you're like, oh they're going gray, that's what we wanna do, we wanna get in great to pull the color out of them and then we'll dodge them. They won't go that kind of sparkly red and yellow color. Cool. What you don't want to do is like if you can see gums, I can't in this one. But if you see gums don't make those gray, the person starts looking a little bit sick if you make their gums go great because everybody's gums are pink. Okay, so great teeth to start with, then click, hold down the sponge tool and grab the dodge tool. Remember the Dodge tool makes things lighter for this to work? You need to work on highlights and the exposure. I'm going to lower it down to something like 20% over here where it says protect tones. Let's turn that off, protect tones. Just try and look after skin tones which are in that kind of yellowy zone and that's actually what we don't want to protect. You want to get rid of that kind of skin tan, yellowy teeth color. So I got it quite low. So watch this. I'm going to click once my brush size here is kind of filling like the gap here I find with a bigger brush, it's less obvious that you've been in there. So I'm gonna click a couple of times now because you're new, you're going to click away at this until I go absolutely crazy white. Okay and that's fine. Um you'll get the hang of it after a little while you can see. I know they've probably gone a little too far. Now. We can turn it down a little bit later on. So if you feel like you've gone too far, stop there. Now. These ones in the background shouldn't be white, like that's just light, it's just dark back there so they don't have to be perfectly white. You're gonna lighten them up a little bit. So I'm just kind of clicking maybe a bigger brush. I'm going to go into the game here now. Don't worry if yours has gone way overboard happens every single time I teach this class, we're just going to get them like that. Now I've gone overboard as well. But what we can do now is on this retouched layer, we can lower down the opacity completely off completely, back on too wide. And just kind of find that where you feel it looks naturally. Okay, so on this lake here, I feel like 80% is kind of their zooming out a little bit, maybe a little bit lower. Cool. So remember when you're working on teeth, lower the saturation first, using the sponge tool set to de saturate, then go in with your dodge tool. Make sure when you're using the dodge tool though to unstick protect tones knowing that I'd like you to open up the second example. It's in your exercise files. 09. Retouch. It's called teeth Oh to thank you. Rock Selena. Let's click open now. This one here is I guess not as clear for the teeth. Okay. But that's cool. We want different examples so make sure you duplicate the layer. De saturate the teeth first, then look at dodging it and then look potentially and lowering it down using the opacity on that retouch layer. Once you've done that as well to practice your other skills, do the same thing with the eyes with the dodge tool and then maybe use a sponge tool to enhance the saturation or the color of the eyes and the hair. You might even look to do levels for this particular image just to kind of bring out the strong blacks. If you don't like this kind of like this flat back kind of instagram style, it's up to you when you're finished. I love you to share what you've done to save it here as a project, stick it in the comments or send it to me on social media. Instagram is the best place I am. Bring your own laptop. Alright, next video
