Quick Tip: Photo enhancement in 10 seconds – PhotoshopTweet
In this quick tip I will explain how to easily enhance a photo using a very neat trick.
If you’re thinking about using Sharpen, it’s not a really good option, since it can ruin some details, such as hair or more detailed textures. If you overdo it, it will look really awkward.
So here’s the proper way to do it!
Open the image in Photoshop. Go to Layer > Duplicate Layer.
Go to Filter > Other… > High Pass. Set a value between 1-4 px or until you can see a raw contour of the objects in the picture.
Go to Window > Layers and set Blending mode to Overlay.
Observe how much the hair stands out moreÂ sand how clear it is. Check the eyelids also and notice the same change.
Notice the texture and the contrast between the midtones and highlights. The skin and lips are more clear now.
The picture looks more alive and provides more details. It’s as if you’d be standing in front of the real model.
