Retouch Tool

To see the printer friendly version of this tutorial, click HERE

This isn't a tutorial as such because to do a tutorial for everything the retouch tool does would take months!

I'm just going to show you the different effects of the retouch tool and maybe you'll see an effect that will help you in one of your PSP projects

I used this doll to show the changes, Feel free to right click on it and Save As to your hard drive and use it to practice the effects of the retouch tool. 

Doll from Candybar Dolls

Ok, let's get going.

LIGHTEN RGB

 

 

As you can see, I used this tool to lighten the hair on the doll. It's best if u use quick clicks of the mouse button to lighten it or you'll end up with white streaks if you hold the mouse button down too long.

DARKEN RGB

 

 

SOFTEN

 

 

I used the retouch tool to soften the edges of the dolls hair and the stars

I had to add a drop shadow so you could see the effect easier

EMBOSS

I used a flower tube for this one because it showed the effect better

 

 

DODGE

 

 

This is an effect you get with quite a few plug ins

BURN

 

 

SATURATION UP

 

 

SATURATION DOWN

 

 

LIGHTNESS UP

 

 

HUE UP

 

 

HUE DOWN

 

 

SATURATION TO TARGET

All the To Target one change the the effect by using whatever colour, pattern or gradient you have in your top styles box

 

 

LIGHTNESS TO TARGET

 

 

I added a drop shadow to this one too so you could see the effect better

HUE TO TARGET

 

 

COLOUR TO TARGET

This has to be my favourite one of the retouch options! I use it in a lot of my PSP work

 

Choose a colour you would like to change the hair too, I chose blue!

You have to have your brush size small so you don't turn her face blue!

 

 

I hope this 'tutorial' has given you some idea of what the retouch tool can do. Have fun experimenting! :o)
