have forgotten how to do doge and burn using layers

Recommended Posts

tks for the reply, although i read this and this is something else.

it involved using layers and then filling the new layer with the colour 888888 which is grey, then using the brush to either darken or lighten on

the original layer ??

ok i remember....

first open up the photo you want to dodge or burn

click on the "add new layer"

unclick the check box for "background" ....make sure the "layer" is highlighted in blue.

open up the colour window by clicking "window" then "colour" then "more" place your cursor next to the "0" in "hex"

now delete the "0's . now type in 888888, that will give you grey

now click on the "paint bucket" in the tools section..... click and fill the layer with grey....

now type F4 ..... then the drop arrow for "blending mode" then click on "overlay" then "ok"

now recheck the box for "background" you original image will appear....

go to the colour window and depending on what you wish to do.. change the "V" lower numbers for darker and higher for lighter.

also, change the "transparency-alpha to about 8 for subtle dodging or burning, less harsh edges....

now click on the "paint brush" in "tools" and then select the size "width" ..

so.... after using the brush ....... click on merge

i found the above technique somewhere and it works for me..
