Clean It Up

At this point, you can still refine the result, but let's get away from the Highlighter and Fill tools and take a look at the Cleanup and Edge Touchup tools. You can drag across your image using the Cleanup tool to slowly lower the opacity of an area. This can be useful when attempting to rid your image of specks that don't quite touch the subject of the photograph. Or, if you hold down the Option key (Mac) or Alt key (Windows), the Cleanup tool will increase the opacity of an area, which will allow you to bring back areas that should not have been deleted (Figures 14.43 and 14.44). Then, to make the edge crisper, use the Edge Touchup tool. If you hold the Command key (Mac) or Ctrl key (Windows), a crosshair will appear in the center of your cursor. Move the crosshair to the place where the subject of the photo should end, and Photoshop will create a crisp edge in that position. That can be useful when Photoshop leaves too much leftover information near the edge of your image.
