BRIGHTEN THE EYES by lightening the whites One

BRIGHTEN THE EYES by lightening the whites One way to quickly enhance a portrait is to draw attention to the eyes. The eyes are the most important feature of the face and the key to a person s individuality. Whether the whites of the eyes are bloodshot or just appear dull, lightening them can enhance the whole face. Brightening and desaturating the white area draws the viewer right into the subject s personality. Lightening the whites of the eyes is a multistep and multilayer process. You first select the whites and remove the redness using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Then you brighten the eyes with a Curves adjustment layer and change the blending mode of the layers. People do not have perfectly white eyes, so this adjustment requires not only making a precise selection, but also viewing the entire photo as you apply the changes. Because the adjustments are on separate layers, you can easily go back and modify the adjustments to enhance the overall image and keep the subject looking natural.
