Facial glare reduction

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. Relative newbie here. My niece posted an iphone pic of me nephews and nieces, but it has glare on it (the faces most importantly). I have tried noise reduction, contrast etc. I want to piss about so it's as realistic as possible. Below is crop of the worst bit.  Any help is VERY gratefully received. ? Cheers.

There is an alternative way to dodge/burn in order to darken or lighten parts of an image.


1) Add a blank layer above background layer and set Blending Mode to "Overlay".

2) Use the brush to paint on the overlay layer. Black to darken and White to lighten.

3) Adjust opacity to suit...
