Step 1. Open Photoshop and open the image you want to edit. Type “L” to open the Lasso Tool. Draw a marquee around bra tag.
Step 2. Type “M” to open the Marquee Tool. Using the tool, move the marquee to a spot of skin with same texture and color. (At this stage if you can’t find a perfect match you may have to tweak skins luminous and color with a curves adjustment layer clipped on top of this layer.
Step 3. Type “CTRL+C” to copy the area, and “CTRL-V” to paste the area. Now move/stretch the new-pasted piece of skin over top of the bra tag. (Keep in mind shadows)
Step 4. Type “P” to open Pen Tool. Using Pen tool trace the existing shadow. Make this a selection feather somewhere in the range of 1 to 3 px. Fill the selection with the same color of the existing shadow. This can be done with the eyedropper tool or by pressing alt while using the brush or fill tool. Once color is filled mask or erase any excess.
Step 5. Create an inverted masked dodge and burn curve adjustment layer. Type “B” to open the brush tool and dodge and burn to build form.
Step 6. Lightly sharpen pixel that where altered during the initial edit. (Any method of choice) In this exercise I choose to create a “stamp” which is a copy of all the visible layers merge together on one working layer. This is done but pressing together keys Shift+Ctrl+Atl +E. Once that’s done select filter-Other-Highpass and a radius in the range of 1-3 works great for this particular image
Great tutorial! I can definitely see how this would come in handy. Although, as a photographer, I would have just redone the shot during the shoot.
