How to Add Dodge and Burn Highlightsgilliandarby
Get some tips from PaintShop Professional Bob Taylor on how to add subtle light and dark highlights to enhance your photos. To leave your original image untouched, create a new layer, set the layer color to grey (html #808080) and set the blend mode to Overlay. With your foreground and background set to white and black, you can use your paintbrush to add light (dodge) or dark (burn) highlights to different parts of your image. These highlights are subtle, but if you turn off the visibility of the grey layer you will see how they look on your original image.
