Before and After- Face shots
The only thing I used in photoshop CS2 is the Healing Brush Tool. This is my first time using it. Does anyone know how I could change the hair color or eyes? Tell me what you think. -Steve

looks quite good but would be easier to see on a larger image. i'm a beginner to retouching too... check this thread out: http://www.dreamweavercafe.com/cafe/....php?tid=34077
i found a tutorial thats really good (link on that thread).
to cut a long story short i used adjustment layers with masks to change colours.
hope it helps?
I fixed the small image problem. Just click on the thumbnail to open up a MUCH larger picture. Thanks for the info.
to change the color of the eyes there is a very easy way to do that, and you will surely find hundreds of tutorials.
-1: Make a new blank layers.
-2: Choose a brush the same size as the Iris of her eyes (sorry for my english)
-3: choose the color you want her eyes to be.
-5: Just Paint the Iris, and erase all the part which are not the iris (like the black inside, the eyelashes....
-6: Change the blending mode of the layer from Normal to Color.
-7: You can now use Hue Saturation to really choose the right color.
That's all you have to do. There is may be some better way to do that, but this way usually work well and allow you to do not destroy your picture permanently since it is a separate layer.
You can use the similar methode for her hair by selecting and painting only her hair.... But I advice you too look at a tutorial, and this one is very good in my opinion:
Thanks, that helps a lot. -Steve
Good start on the retouch, if you want to give it a softer feel, try copying the layer and giving it a gaussian blur of about 10-15 and then lower the opacity until you get the dezired effect, it works wonders on trying to get that studio shot feel
On the blurred layer you can then get a soft edged brush and erase the blur on the eyes and mouth to bring back a little sharpness
had a quick go... put some adjustment layers on and then used the patch and clone tools. let me know what u think (9 sec gif):
see before and after photo's here
I used bits of your retouch as yours is already done v nicely. Hope thats ok.
PS - i dunno if there is a better way, but i used different adjustment layers for hair colour, iris colour, whiteness of the robe, skin tone, whiteness of the eye.

Just had a look at the retouch you did, if you look closely you can see repeating patterns on her forehead and under her eyes, you have to be carefull when using the clone brush or this can happen, one thing i do after using the clone brush is do small brushes with the healing brush or spot brush, it works wonders and helps to stop the repeating patters.
Here endeth the lesson!!
