It is said that a simple smile can change the world. Isn’t it that we all like to smile when we pose for a photo? Having a picture perfect smile doesn’t stop at showing out your teeth, it is important that your smile gleams with your shiny white teeth. Whitening teeth is very easy with Photoshop.
What if you have a very nice photo that you would want to use for your Digital Scrapbook but you feel that it lacks that “Wow factor” due to your discolored teeth? Here’s a simple solution to salvaging that photo.
With the help of Adobe Photoshop or any other image editor for that matter, you can put your ugly teeth insecurity behind. For this particular tutorial, we’re using Adobe Photoshop CS5 version but basically, any version of Adobe PS works the same. You can also use Corel PhotoPaint or any free image editor that you have on hand as long as it allows masking technique.
Open Adobe Photoshop.
Open the photo that you intend to edit.
You can increase each image by clicking on it so you can easily see all settings used.
Before you try to do anything, zoom in the image to a comfortable size where you can easily select the teeth.
From the side toolbar, select the Magic Wand tool.
Activate the add to selection mode. Using the Magic Wand, select or highlight the teeth.
From the Top toolbar, go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation.
A pop-up window will open and then select Yellows from the drop-down.
Adjust the tone by moving the slider toward the right as this makes the color yellow get lighter. For more natural looking teeth, we strongly advice to refrain from over-doing this trick.
Just look how magnificent the “AFTER” image in this scrapbook page!
Easy peasy isn’t it? Now, you can confidently show your Digital Scrapbook to the whole world!
