A Simple And Clever Way To Remove The Bags Under The Eyes With Photoshop

Dani Diamond of Fstoppers recently shared a pretty quick and clever way to removing those dark patches you have under the eyes of your subjects.

Ignoring the commonly used patch tool, Dodge/Burn tool and Clone tool which either copy the texture as well as the color or smudging the texture altogether. Instead, Dani opts to use the curves tool which allows improving the dark tones while not affecting the texture. The entire tutorial and more examples can be found at Fstoppers.

    “…use the curves tool which allows improving the dark tones while not affecting the texture.”

    Which is exactly what Dodge and Burn, set on light medium or dark tones, are for. It’s unfair to just ditch them with Patch and Clone who are way more destructive :)

    By the way, DIYphotography.net is one of the very very best website I like to read. Thank you a ton for all the greatness you’re gathering here, I’ve never had the occasion to say it.
