Help Someone i am a NOOB - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Is there a way you make it so the paintbrush is not full force so you could say change lipstick color and still get the detail of the lips under the color?...

    Shrilly, the answer is opacity and blend mode. Using 'color' or 'overlay' blend mode will colorize without covering. There are 2 ways to achieve this....either set the palette blend option or the fill/ brush blend option. Use a new layer for every color used so that you can edit...lower/raise opacity etc..without disturbing other layers. Another good trick is to use the eraser tool at a low opacity to remove excess areas of color to give images a more natural look. Lots of ways !

    Yeah really, she is being way too hard on herself!! I am pretty good with
    PS now but I didn't know about opacity when I first started either. One
    thing I love about photoshop is the ability to create beautiful paintings
    without having to go buy expensive watercolors or oils. With the array of
    brushes its very easy to get a nice painterly effect, easier than Painter 7
    in my opinion.

    Every photoshop artist has their own technique so have fun experimenting
    with the tools, layers and blend modes. One of my favorite tools is the
    airbrush, especially since I love airbrush art.


    Happy Photoshopping! (its the only kind of shopping that doesn't hurt my
    wallet, ouchie....)
