Hello guys I am Vaibhav and in this tutorial I am going to show you how to use Dodge and Burn in Photoshop to enhance your images. Last time I discussed about Removing Stray Hairs in Photoshop which is a recommended tutorial if you are a studio or fashion photographer. I am going to use Photoshop CS6 for this tutorial but you can use older versions of Photoshop also. Inside Photoshop I am going to use Dodge and Burn Tool, Layers, Blend mode etc.

STEP 1

Open your image in Photoshop. If you look at her neck then you’ll notice that there are lots of blemishes. I am going to remove these blemishes using Healing Brush Tool. First create a new layer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+N/Cmd+Shift+N and rename it to “Heal”. So grab Healing Brush Tool from the toolbar or press Shift+J again and again until it comes. I have written a whole article on “Removing Blemishes Using Healing Brush and Stamp Tool”. You may go through that article for further understanding.
