90 Second Advanced Edit On Soft SkinColor
peeps, Let's take I hope it and scary right there. We're gonna take a quick break from the mixology is and again do another advance edit. We're into a 92nd edit on this image. We're gonna go through and basically do some retouched to really refine the image from where we have it here. And if you remember from the last tutorial we did that 12th soft skin color mixology where we took this image from import right here. And we got it here in less than 10 seconds. So it already looks fantastic. But, you know, to deliver one of these images digitally or basically to put it on the block or whatever, I want to do some basic retouch. We're gonna do that inside the light room and again show you how powerful the brush presets could be from the preset system when it comes to these types of images. So let's put in 90 seconds up on the clock. And you know what if I go over by just a little bit because of explaining stuff to you, please forgive me, but let's try and stick to it. OK, here we go. So 96...
oclock. Let's go ahead and hit. Start. We're gonna use an adjustment brush. I'm gonna grab this little skin softener right here, and we're gonna just feather this and paint it right into her chest and we're gonna go over the arm. I'm gonna go right there. We're gonna go over the face basically, and I'm just painting it kind of like over the areas of skin while avoiding like the eyes and and, uh, any areas of detail that I don't want to kind of kill. I'm gonna bring that right over this area in her arm. I'm gonna go over her legs on this side, and that is looking fantastic. Now, what we do is click new and in areas that I want additional strengthening of this effect, I'm gonna repaint this little effect, gonna paint right here, just kind of over the arm a little bit and also painted just over this side of the leg a little bit as well, and I'm gonna do is click on that pin. And now we're gonna control the strength of this and we're gonna drag to the right to kind of just further soften those areas just a bit Let's click new one more time. Let's go ahead and drop down and we're gonna go into Let's do a little bit of an iris enhancer. I'm gonna zoom in on her eyes and we're just gonna paint this right over the iris. So we're gonna go right around that little loop right there. And that looks great. Really The same thing on the other side. Gonna hold down alter option. I'm gonna paint it out of the shadows. And I'm also going to make sure that we're not kind of hitting the whites of her eyes on either side as well. So let's do that. And then let's kind of pink this out of the shadows just a little bit. We're gonna zoom back out, and from here, we're gonna hold down alter option and adjust that pin to get to the right strength. Just so it's not overpowering, so I'm pulling it back just a little bit. Now let's click one more time. I knew I'm gonna go down. We're going to a lip in hands or more time. We're gonna zoom in. We're gonna bring this over the lips and paint that right in right there. That looks great. Let's zoom out and again. I've just the effect of that. I'm gonna click to the right and just drag it up so we kind of get a little bit more enhancement in the lips. Let's click New one more time. And this time we're going to a hair or lashing enhancer. We're gonna pull this over that hair and just kind of get that golden hair to really just pop. You have this beautiful blonde hair. It's really wanted to kind of stick out of pocket this image. I'm just shrinking down the brush and increasing the size of brush by using my mouse wheel holding out alter option to click and unpainted from areas that I might not want it. And then one last thing. Let's go ahead and we're gonna do a radio filter with a D sharpener right here. I'm gonna click and just pull it out from the center. So basically, this is just gonna de sharpen. The outside edge of the image will also pull down the exposure a little bit, and we're done with our advanced edit shy call these two minute. It's I don't know, sometimes air 90 seconds sometimes they're two minutes. Either way, they're pretty damn quick. Let's take a look at where we got. So basically, if you remember, we create a virtual copy after we applied that initial preset the soft skin color precent. OK, so when I click back to see the before on this, what we're gonna end up seeing is the before with the preset applied. So that kind of gives us an idea of where our retouching just took us. So I'm gonna turn the lights out, make sure that we're in the develop module, press back slash And here is that before And here is the after. So that is crazy. Like how much we've done with this image just right directly inside of light room to really refine and get a fantastic, gorgeous looking boudoir porter right here. Hopefully all enjoy this tutorial and I'll see you all in the next video
