Chapter 10. Photograph: Retouching Portraits > Digital Nose Job - Pg. 311

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Four: Press Command-T (PC: Control-T) to bring up the Free Transform bounding box. Hold Shift-Option-Command (PC: Shift-Alt-Control), then grab the upper-right corner point of the bound- ing box and drag inward to add a per- spective effect to the nose. Doing this gives the person a pug nose, but you'll fix that in the next step. Step Five: To get rid of the "pug-nose" effect, release all the keys, then grab the top- center point and drag straight downward to make the nose look natural again, but now it's smaller. When the new size looks about right, press Return (PC: Enter) to lock in your changes. If any of the old nose peeks out from behind the new nose, click on the Background layer and use the Clone Stamp tool (S) to clone away those areas: Option-click (PC: Alt- click) an area next to the nose to sample it, and then paint (clone) right over it to complete the retouch.
