This is an image from a shoot last Tuesday with Andrea. I loved everything about the image, except the shadow underneath her right eye. I've tried everything that I know to remove it. The image was captured with a CAnon 10d and the post was done with Photoshop 7. I used one 3'x3' softbox camera left and natural light from a bank of windows that were to the right of the model. Please help.

Still no image. Looks like you have it posted somewhere that either doesn't allow linking or only allows member access.

I think your trying to link to MS Passport and it appreas not to allow linking to another URL. Plus the ampersan represents a space [someone else jump in here]. All I get is a request to log in.

Here's your code:

Even with no image there are a number of ways of removing shawdows. Of course there is the old clone method but with the PSCS new tool box there are other ways also.

Patch Tool - This is under the healing brush (bandaid icon on tool bar) which I use a lot for this and baggy eyes. Make a selection and then move this selection over a texture area of the face that matches the eye area. This will lighten the dark area but not make it look too fake. If it does then before you click to accept the selection go to Edit/Fade effect and back it off. Will make your selection look more natural.

Burn and Dodge - From the old days of darkroom work we all remember cardboards with holes in them and holding our hands under the lens to lighten and darken areas. Well PS does have a burn and dodge tool but I have never liked it much. It always seems to color shift no matter how light the brush. And once done I was not able to correct if I felt it went too far. That is why I use the Layers menu for this. Go to Layers/New Layer menu at the top of PS. By doing this a pop up menu comes up that will allow you to make an Overlay layer. Go to Mode for this layer and click on Overlay. Then check the box at the bottom for 50% gray. This creates a netural layer that will have no effect on the layer. Pick a soft edge brush with the paint tool and reduce the opacity of the brush to 10% or less. You can now paint over the image with black or white for the dodgeing and burning. Black will darken and white will lighten. Plus you can even paint over any areas that you felt went too far. Too light then stroke over with black. Plus being a layer you can even reduce the opacity of the whole layer if you want for a light effect.
