we have talked about how to emphasize the eyes of a person
with the aid of Lightroom, and today we
are whitening teeth with quite similar methods. This we
can carry out with the adjustment brush too and no crafty
setting is necessary as we will find this among the default
settings of effects.
First of all, take a slightly (or very) yellowish smile
for the action. You can use a RAW or JPEG file —Version
3 of Lightroom can handle the latter format as
I said, all you need to do is click on the Adjustment
Brush in the Develop section,
and then find in the Effect menu the Teeth
Whitening option. It is right under the previously
discussed Iris Enhance.
Without teeth whitening toothpaste
lower below in Brush section, set a comfortable
brush size (Size). You can check the size
if you drag the mouse over the photo. If your mouse has
a scroll wheel, you can simply regulate the brush size with
it. Make sure that Density remains 100%
Once the brush is set, whitening can commence. With careful
moves of the mouse paint over the tooth surface and the
result is immediate. While working, you can change the brush
size in accordance with the size of each tooth.
A smile to boast
you accidentally go over the tooth and paint the gum too
(or rather de-color it), use the Erase
option in the Brush section to erase the
painted surface thereby restoring the original state.
The teeth will glow white afterwards. In for the next portion
of caffeine and nicotine.
