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.

Here, after cleaning up the effect by painting on the layer mask, is my final result:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
