Dodging

1 Create a New Image Layer; Layer>New>Layer

Name it "Dodge"; change the blending mode to "Overlay", and check the option to fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% gray).

2 Change the foreground and background colors to the default; White and Black; press the D key. Your foreground color should now be white. Choose the paintbrush tool, set the brush's opacity to a low value: 10-30%. Remember that you can change the size, edge hardness, and opacity of the brush easily using the keyboard (see Paintbrushes on page 26).

3 Paint the area of the image that you wish to Dodge.

4 If the edges of the dodge layer are too obvious, you can blur the dodge layer using the Gaussian Blur filter.

Paint with a white paint brush with a low opacity over the image to dodge
