Using Adobe Photoshop, you can easily make teeth seem naturally whiter in photos. Once you have your photo opened, follow these steps.
- At the bottom right of the screen, click on the Adjustment Layer icon, then select Hue/Saturation.
- Under the “Properties” bar, click on the small hand icon. Then click on the most yellow part of the teeth.
- Click and drag the arrows all the way to the right for both Hue and Saturation. This will help you see which areas are affected.
- At the bottom of the “Properties” bar, click and drag the bigger arrows closer to the smaller arrows.
- Then click on the white area above the blue area, and drag it until the teeth are fully colored on the picture.
- Click on the bigger left arrow and drag it more to the left. Then click on the smaller arrow on the left, and drag it more to the right. This will help soften the colorization of the teeth.
- Put the Hue and Saturation back to 0.
- You can now adjust the Saturation and Lightness to your liking, but only pay attention to the teeth.
- As you might have noticed, the whole picture was affected by that change. To only adjust the color of the teeth, first, select the mask, then press Ctrl + I (Windows) or Cmd + I (Mac). Once you do that, the picture should go back to its original state.
- With the white color selected at the bottom of the toolbar on the left, click on the Brush tool. You can adjust the size and type of the brush on top.
- Then go over the teeth with the brush tool. You can also adjust the Opacity of the layer to make the teeth look more natural, and you’re done!
