      I don’t provide the Photoshop files for tutorials, only images that are required to complete the tutorial. If you’re referring to the image of the woman’s eyes, then it’s not necessary for you to complete this tutorial. Just use any image you like that has a face! It shouldn’t be too hard for you to find one!

    Hi again, I’m having an issue with the highlight/shadow layer at the 10:00 mark. I’ve successfully created the layer following all directions, but when I turn off all other layers, I do not have a solid grey layer – it’s checkered. I’ve watched, done, redone several times to no avail. Help please! (sorry to be a pain!) Thank you so much! :o)

    I enjoyed your PTC video on Enhancing Eyes in Photoshop. Trying to master the technique over 2 days I feel I am using the correct procedure with the 2 ellipses but when I release my mouse, and then the keys, the trimming does take place but but I loose areas on both sides of the eyes. Using PS CS6 on a current iMac. The enclosed 30 second video show my results. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?

    Thank You,
    Bob Fox
