1. Create a duplicate of the original photo.
2. Select the duplicate photo.
3. Add a layer to adjust the levels of the duplicate.
3. Decrease the light by moving the black slider over to the right until the blanket becomes blackness.
4. Select the original photo.
5. Drag the duplicate onto the original to create a layer with the duplicate photo.
6. Select the now duplicate layer
7. Add a layer mask - reveal all
8. Select the brush tool - Mode exclusion
9. Brush over the parts of the photo I want to look as they did in the original (the baby's face, arms, blanket).

Beautiful photos! Wonderful tenderness of this pretty baby!ReplyDelete
The pictures are beautiful. And, I'm taking a PhotoShop course on Creative Live; I know how challenging some photos can be.ReplyDelete
Adorable baby! :)ReplyDelete
Such a sweetly sleeping face! That sounds about what I do when blurring out backgrounds. I don't use masks, though, I just erase over the duplicated version.ReplyDelete
