How to Add Shine to Skin Quickly and Easily Using Photoshop

While the kind of shine one gets from oily skin is something that most people would like to avoid, a touch of shine in the right places can give skin a radiant glow that really enhances an image. This awesome video tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily add a touch of shine to your subject's skin using Photoshop. 

Coming to you from Aaron Nace with Phlearn, this great video tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily add a touch of shine to skin using Photoshop. This can be a great way to add a bit of glow and radiance to skin, and it can really enhance a portrait in the right circumstances. Just like any sort of post-processing technique that involves modifying skin, however, in general, a subtle touch is the best way to go about things to avoid it becoming too artificial-looking or gaudy. Generally, I like to finish an editing session, then step away from the computer for a few minutes to grab a drink or something and let my eyes rest before sitting down to evaluate things one more time before exporting the files. I'll often end up toning things down just a bit at this point. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Nace.
