The eyes instantly change color. Step 6: Adjust The Hue, Saturation And Lightness To change the color, simply adjust the Hue, Saturation and Lightness options by dragging their sliders left or right. Hue will change the basic color, Saturation changes the saturation of the color, and Lightness affects the overall brightness. Be careful not to drag the Saturation or Lightness sliders too far to the right, though, since things can quickly become unnatural looking. The image in the document window will continually update as you move the sliders so you can see a live preview of the changes: Dial in the color you want with the Hue, Saturation and Lightness sliders. When you’re happy with the new color of the eyes, click OK to exit out of the Hue/Saturation dialog box (Photoshop CS4 users can leave the Adjustments Panel open since there’s no need to close it). Here’s my image after changing the woman’s eyes from blue to green:

The Hue/Saturation adjustment makes it easy to select any color you want for the eyes. Step 7: Select The Brush Tool If your initial selection of the eyes with the Lasso Tool wasn’t perfect, cleaning things up is as easy as painting with a brush! Select Photoshop’s Brush Tool from the Tools palette, or press the letter B to select it with the keyboard shortcut: Select the Brush Tool. Step 8: Select The Hue/Saturation Layer Mask If we look in our Layers palette, we see our Hue/Saturation adjustment layer sitting above the image on the Background layer. One of the great things about adjustment layers is that they include a built-in layer mask, which makes it easy to control exactly which areas of the

image are affected by the adjustment layer and which are not. All we need to do is paint on the layer mask with our brush, but first, we need to make sure the layer mask is selected. You should see a white highlight border around the layer mask’s thumbnail, which means the mask is selected. If you don’t see the highlight border, simply click directly on the thumbnail to select the mask: Make sure the layer mask for the adjustment layer is selected. 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

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
