How to Whiten Teeth

To whiten teeth using Photoshop 7, use the Lasso tool to draw a loose selection around the teeth. (Instructions for Photoshop Elements are at the bottom of the page.)

On the menu, select Image | Adjustments | Hue/Saturation. The Hue/Saturation dialog box will open. We only want to edit the yellow color, so in the Edit drop-down list, change Master to Yellows. Decrease the Saturation to remove the yellows and increase the Lightness if needed. Click OK and deselect the teeth.

The result? White as white can be!

Photoshop Elements: Use the lasso tool to draw a loose selection around the teeth. On the menu, select Enhance | Adjust Color | Hue/Saturation. In the Edit drop-down list, change Master to Yellows. Decrease the Saturation to remove the yellows and increase the Lightness if needed. Click OK and deselect the teeth.

Connie learned this trick from The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby available at Amazon.
