How do I whiten teeth in Photoshop?

By SYMONE SEVEN

 A bright white smile is an inviting way to introduce an image. We as the photographer’s should be mindful of the difference a white smile can make in an image. I also pay attention to the white’s of the eyes as well for a clean image.


Steps to getting a white smile in photoshop

  1. Click the QUICK SELECTION TOOL

  2. Click and drag over the teeth to SELECT. Use OPTION - to erase

  3.  Click Adjustments

  4. Click on the HUE/SATURATION adjustment layer

  5. Choose YELLOWS from the color options, and turn down the SATURATION and turn up the LIGHTNESS.

  6. For extra whiteness, reselect by going to the SELECT TAB, 

  7. Then click RESELECT

  8. Now you have the teeth back selected, go to SELECTED COLOR adjustment layer

  9. Turn down the BLACKS inside of the WHITE color option

  10. Done.
