Step 9: Paint On The Mask To Clean Up The Selection To clean up the eyes, simply paint over any problem areas with your brush. Paint with white to add to the area that the Hue/Saturation adjustment layer is affecting, or with black to hide the effects of the adjustment layer. Photoshop paints using your current Foreground color, which you can see by looking at the Foreground color swatch near the bottom of the Tools palette: The Foreground color swatch shows the color you’re painting with. With the layer mask selected, press the letter D on your keyboard to reset your Foreground color to white. To quickly switch to black, press the letter X , which swaps the Foreground and Background colors. Press X again to switch back to white. To change the size of your brush, use the left and right bracket keys on your keyboard. Press the left bracket key ( [ ) repeatedly to make the brush smaller or the right bracket key ( ] ) to make it larger. Press Shift+left bracket to make the brush edges softer if needed, or Shift+right bracket to make them harder.
