"LearningWhilePracticing" has one of the most practical approaches when it comes to learning. Our goal is to let you be operational as quickly as possible while at the same grasping all the concepts required. Being able to work on your projects through a software while learning it at the same time, is a source of motivation that will make you go further.

Concept: Our concept is to provide for each software, a bunch of "how to do" videos, answering the most frequently searched terms. Because of how dynamic technology is, more and more videos will be added up gradually. For some software, we even opted for a full coverage.


Exercise Files: For each video, exercise files are provided in the ressources section. That way, you will be able to work on the exact same ... See full profile

So you want to have fun and learn all the stools? Click on this tutorial right now 2. Plan: Hi, guys, and welcome to Premium for the Shop tutorial number two from the Siri's off learning. While practicing in this tutorial, we're going to learn how to do a full body enhancement. This story all will be divided into five steps, the first step being the chest enhancement. The second step will focus on the waste reduction. The third step will focus on the tanning. The fourth step will focus on the dodging effect that is going to be used to make the eyes , the eyebrows, the lips and the hair appear clearer and more in contrast with the whole body. And finally, the glossy picture effect that we're gonna be using, which will bring some life to the picture That way, in the end, this picture can be featured into magazines or posters on look extremely professional. 3. Step 1 Chest Enhancement: Let's start with Step one. Chest enhancement. First things first. Off course, you have to open this picture that you can find in the exercise fights, and we are gonna double click right there in order to unlock the layer that we have. Once our layer is unlocked, we're gonna select the elliptical selection tool. We're gonna zoom right here in order to have access to a more enhanced breast area, and we're going to proceed to do a selection right there. So I'm gonna shift the selection of it to here a bit more like this. And then in order for me to preserve this selection that I'm gonna be using for the second breast, I'm gonna change that selection and transform it into a path. So here, this button right here allows me to make work path from the selection, and I'm going to save this work path by double clicking on it and renaming it breast. Then I can again transform this path into this election. Now what I'm going to do in order to do an enhancement is hit the control and T key on my keyboard, which will give me the free transform menu. Now for the free transform menu. I'm going to simply make the breast as big as I wanted to be. Okay. And in order for this part right here to remain at the level that I need to I'm gonna hold the control key so that this small white arrow right here appears and I'm gonna drag and drop it like this. This is gonna band the selection that I that I have, as you can see. So what I'm going to basically, is I'm gonna work my way in order to make the new breast look as realistic as possible and as reasonably big as possible, not go over, but also show an appearance change. Okay, Like this, I'm almost there. Just a bit off reduction right here, and I'm gonna hit the enter key. So I'm also going to go back to the move tool, and I'm going to shift it a bit to the right in order for me to erase the white spot right here. So sorry. I'm just gonna hit the control. I'll see in order to have the selection, and I'm going to move it like this. So you need to have the selection off the part that you need. You need to have the part that you want selected, and that way you have it moved the way you want it to be. So when this has been done, I'm going to do the same step for the second breast. So I'm gonna go back to the path that I have previously established. I'm gonna load it as a selection. I'm gonna make sure my mouse is clicked on the selection tool so that I can just move the selection. And in order for me to move it on the same horizontal line, I'm gonna maintain the shift key on my keyboard, and I'm gonna move it right here. So I first start moving and then I hold the shift key and I'm gonna move it almost up until , let's say there, Okay, now I'm going to hit the control T once again, and I'm going to start making it bigger than I want. So as you can see, I start having here a purple line that appears, which tells me that I'm starting to be at the same level as the one next to it because actually, for the shop is recognizing the variation that I've done for the previous selection, and it's adapting it to be almost equal to the one next to it. Okay, so I'm trying to make the new breast as realistic as possible. I don't want to go over the edge. I just want to make the transformation. That looks actually pretty real. Okay. And now I'm gonna go and hit Enter and I can t select. So there we have our new breast. So if you feel that it's still not satisfactory, you can hit control. I'll see. Okay, You select it once more. You hit control t and you say, OK, well, feel it could be a bit bigger. For example gonna go like this. Okay, Andi, I hit enter again and there you have it. There are feel now that it's much better than it. Waas. Now what's left to do is to do a bit off clean up right there because there are certain lines here that I'm going to define later on, but that start to look not much, really. So I'm going to go to the spot healing brush tool right there. Okay, I'm going to select a portion that is not very big so that it can cover as you see what's outside of the line on what's inside off the line. And I'm gonna click right here in order to start confusing that part with the rest of the body. I want to get rid off those extra lines that I have, so it's actually very septal. Okay? I just want to get rid off them a bit, not completely. And I mostly also want to get rid off that part because it's starting to look a bit unreal . Okay, if I feel that I've done a mystic can always go back to control all see and get back to where I waas OK, It's the undue key. In photo shop, I do as much as cleaning as possible. Okay, just cleaning on the edge. I make sure that I am between what I want to correct and what should be taken for the correction. Okay. Like for here, for example, you see can help me build a bit. But not too much can help me build what was left. So I tried to find the right spot for it. Okay. In order for it to stay realistic as real as possible. Okay, I can also drag and drop like this. Okay, so here it doesn't give me something satisfactory, so I really have to try to find the best correction possible. Okay, It's a matter of taste, but here, I'm just clicking until I get something as clean as possible. Okay? Something that I feel satisfies me. And whenever I feel that I made some extra step that I don't want, I simply hit the control all see, in order to delete it, Okay? Just going to correct a bit right there as well. There we go. Now I feel that it's already better. Okay, so there it is for the first step, and now we're gonna go for the second step, which is the waste reduction. 4. Step 2 Waist Reduction: So for the waste reduction, which is the second step, I'm gonna go to the past tool right there. And from that point right here, um, define a new portion, which is the portion that I want to remove, and I'm going to select it right there. I'm going to call this portion. Waste right. And I'm going to load this portion as a selection right there. Once this portion has been loaded as a selection, I'm gonna hit the control T in order for me to be able to transform it. And I'm simply gonna drag it right there. And I hit the control key in order to do same thing I was previously doing. In order for me to be close to the line, I need to close that line. The curvature here needs to be close, so I work in a way to close it as good as possible. Okay, so it's a matter of trying. If it doesn't work out, I can always hit the shift Control Z. So here, I'm gonna hit the selection one and just shifted a bit more. Because sometimes when you hit, enter, it goes away and there you have it so that's the first reduction. So in order for me to get rid off this white mark right there, I'm going to use the sport healing brush. And I am gonna simply hit here in order to reconstruct what was missed. Now, regarding the white space right here, I'm going to use this tool, the clone stamp toe, since it's a whole unified background. So I'm going to hit the old key right here, and I'm gonna click with the mouse, which will define what part it will start copying right here. So, as you can see once, my mouse is starting right here. Once I start to drag and drop, it's gonna simply copy with the cursor with the cross. So it's gonna copy what's in the cross inside the circle. So I'm gonna hit control C going to redefine the area right there. And I'm going to use a brush brush size that is pretty small. In order for me to reconstruct here, that area that has been erased, I make sure that my opacity and flow is at 100%. And I'm going to use a hard, soft sorry, a hard edge brush not too soft edged brush. OK, I'm going. Define again the white area. So whenever I go over the white area, sometimes when you don't see anything or start seeing things that you don't want, you can simply redefine it. Okay? You re defining their You continue. It's true. Okay, so that's it for the first part of the waste reduction. Now I'm going to do the same thing. For the second part. I'm going to go back to this tool right here. I'm gonna go to that point. I'm going to try to go within the middle right there. Then I define this path right here. I'm gonna call it waste left. I'm going to load it as a selection and I'm gonna hit the control T and I'm gonna proceed to the reduction and then you think the control key. I make sure to load it here and another for me to not have to reconstruct a lot. I tried to cover the missing area with what I already have. I mean, I don't want to have to reconstruct a lot with the spotting brush otherwise can start to look pretty unreal. So I tried to make it as good as possible. And I hit the enter key. I d select. Sorry. I'm gonna hit the control outset and select it again, and I'm gonna try to get it a bit lower. Okay, there we go. And now I'm going to use the spot healing brush to in order to reconstruct the missing area on in order for the whole skin too much. Okay. So I can also do a dragon drop right here in order for the whole skin. Start matching can do things like this. Okay, in order to take what's on the surrounding off that skin, okay? And I can also use the healing brush tool, which needs just at the clone stamp an area to be defined. So I'm gonna choose this area right there, and I'm going to start covering like this so that it starts to get my area matched with the one next to it. As you can see, another reconstruction is actually much better. Okay, that's a process off surgery, trying to reconstruct what's missing. And I'm also going to use the clone stamp tool right there and start to reconstruct the missing quite area. Okay. I have to be very careful. Not go over the inches. If you have a tablet, that's even better. Okay. Can be way more precise with the tablet. Okay, Stake your time. There's no rush. Okay? And there we go. Okay. If you feel that it's a bit extreme, you can redo it again. Okay? Again, There's no rush on. There we go. 5. Step 3 Body Tan: So now that the waste reduction has been done, it's time now to work on the whole body time. So step three is the whole body town. So right now, in order to make correct body town, I'm going to use the burn tool, and I'm going to use an exposure off 10%. Now, I simply have two main thing. The head of the key health, the most bottom health on. I'm simply gonna cover the whole by the end face in order to give it satisfactory amount of Dan that I want. Once this has been done, I'm going to start working on the more defined time 10 lines, such as the chest area right here. Okay, so I start giving more 10 on the chest. Then I'm going to start giving more time on the abdominal area right here. Okay. In order to give more fit. Look, I'm gonna make it a bit bigger as well. Okay? Just some definition also right here, finishing on the shoulders, and I'm gonna give also some definition right here on the chest area, and that's it for the body town. So you need to do a whole body time first and then the specific areas right there that you need to put into contrast. Like, for example, here also want to get rid off the timeline. There we go. I got rid off. The timeline can go even a bit more. Okay, Do not go extreme, because otherwise you will saturate the picture. And you don't want to do that. No. For step for I'm gonna be working the Dutch clear. 6. Step 4 Clearing Face Features: so for step for I'm going to select the Dutch too, also with an exposure of 10%. I'm gonna many mice the size of the brush. And I'm gonna be working on the eyes area right here to make the ice stand out a bit more than the lips. I just want to give some contrast for the lips compared to the whole body. Don, I'm going to the same thing for the eyebrows. It's one time to time and I'm going to do as much as possible for the hair in order to make it stand as much as possible. Okay, so for the hair, that's not gonna be a big difference. But even if it's hardly noticeable, it's there. OK, if in a hardly noticeable difference is a difference. And there we have it for the Dutch. Clear? No, we're going to go to the final step. Step number five 7. Step 5 Glowing Filter: So for step number five. In order to give the picture more glossier effect, we are first gone and duplicate the layer that we have. And once this layer has been selected, we go to filter, blur and go, Schindler, we're going to select a blur off proximity 1.3. Okay, 1.3 pixels. The picture should look a bit blurry, but still visible. That's the amount of power that you need. That's why I chose 1.3 pixels and I hit. OK, now I'm going to select the layer mode right here and instead off normal, I'm going to use overlay and I'm gonna change the opacity to 42%. And the film 75%. And there you have a difference before and after. So here, after your picture, look a bit glossier. Okay? The blurring takes all the bad details out. So you get better picture that looks smoother and that looks way more life. As you can see, the difference between the two now hope you enjoy this tutorial and stay tuned for more to come
