Tips and Techniques

PearlyWhites Version 2.0 includes a slider to adjust the amount of the teeth whitening effect added to your images. Simply move the slider to achieve the desired effect. You can choose between Less and More. A value can also be entered in the range from 0 to 100. The default is 50. The previous PearlyWhites Version 1.x plug-in was equal to this default value. PearlyWhites remembers the last setting that you used and will be used the next time the plug-in is executed. This allow PearlyWhites to be used in recorded actions and used in batch operations on a large number of images with Photoshop.

You can see the Before or After image by selecting the buttons under the image at the bottom of the filter window or by clicking in the Navigation Window when the button is set to After. Once you click OK, the slider value is saved until the next time the filter is used.

If you would like the teeth to appear even whiter you can adjust the slider to achieve the desired effect.

  • 1. Open Image
  • 2. Select Filter>Imadio>PearlyWhites
  • 3. The PearlyWhites user interface will appear
  • 4. Adjust slider to your liking
  • 5. Select OK
You can run the process more times if you choose to make the teeth even whiter.

To localize the effect of PearlyWhites, use the following method to vary the amount of teeth whitening by using the Photoshop History Brush applied selectively to the image. Example Steps:

  • 1. Open Image 2. Select Filter>Imadio>PearlyWhites 3. The PearlyWhites user interface will appear 4. Adjust slider to your liking 5. Select OK 6. Select 'History Brush Tool' from the Tool bar. Then select the box to the left of the last PearlyWhites image under the History Tab (this sets source for History Brush to PearlyWhites). The 'History Brush' Icon will now appear in the box to the left of PearlyWhites.
  • 7. Select the 'Open' image under the 'History' tab (this should be the image originally opened)
  • 8. Set the 'Brush Master Diameter' to a size large enough to brush over the teeth (this is located on the top of the Photoshop screen under the task bar) 9. Set the 'Opacity' to a desired level (75-100% is a good starting point)
  • 10. Apply the brush to the teeth area one or more times to your liking.

Advanced Tips

How to Create a PearlyWhites Action in Photoshop
  • 1. Open an image in Photoshop 2. Create a new action by clicking on the
    Create new action button at the bottom of the Actions palette. This will create and save the new action in the action folder you currently have selected (Default Actions).
  • 3. Name the action PearlyWhites and click Record
  • 4. Run the PearlyWhites Filter as you would normally. Select: Filter –> Imadio and click on PearlyWhites
  • 5. If you plan to use this action for use in a batch command, the Save As function needs to be recorded now. Follow these sample steps: 6. Select File –> Save As
  • 7. Now create a new folder name that is not part of your normal workflow for safety reasons. 8. Now pick the format in which you want the images saved. 9. Double-click on the folder you just created. This folder and file name is normally ignored in a Batch run, however under some conditions it will be used, and so picking a trash name and folder insures you do not accidentally alter images you want to keep.
  • 10. Select Save to proceed and save the file into the new folder.
  • 11. Now set the Image Options – Quality you desire. 12. Click OK. The Save As… function is now recorded as the Save step in the Action.
  • 13. In the Action palette, click the Stop Recording button. It's the square shaped button on the bottom left.
Recording Multiple Steps in Photoshop
  • To create one action with multiple steps (i.e. Filters) follow steps 1) and 2) as outlined above. For step 3) Name the new Action descriptive of the functions being performed, such as PearlyWhites – ShineOff. Click Record.
  • Follow step 4) as above repeating the process for each Filter. Select: Filter – Imadio – and click on PearlyWhites
  • Now repeat step 4) Select Filter – Imadio – and click on ShineOff.
  • Now perform the Save As function as described above. In the Action palette, click the Stop Recording Button. You have created an Action that will run two Filters with a single command. Now you can set up a Batch command to run this action on a full set of images from a specified folder.
Using the Batch command (Photoshop)

The Batch command lets you play an action on a folder of files and subfolders.

Similar to the action you created, you will be saving the processed files to a new location, you should create a new folder for the processed files before starting the batch.

  • 1. Choose File > Automate > Batch.
  • 2. For Play, choose the desired set and action from the Set and Action pop-up menus.
  • 3. For Source, choose the Folder option from the drop-down menu. 4. Click Choose… to locate and select the folder. 5. Click Choose or OK.
  • 6. Deselect Override Action "Open" Commands. 7. Select Include All Subfolders to process files in subfolders. 8. Select Suppress Color Profile Warnings to turn off display of color policy messages. 9. Select the Folder option from the Destination drop-down menu. 10. Click Choose… to locate and select the folder. 11. Click Choose or OK.
  • 12. Select Override Action "Save As" Commands. This requires a Save As command in the Action because the Batch command will not automatically save the source files. 13. Since Folder has been selected as the destination, specify a file-naming convention and select file compatibility options for the processed files: 14. For File Naming, select elements from the drop-down menus or enter text into the fields to be combined into the default names for all files. The fields let you change the order and formatting of the filename parts. You must include at least one field that is unique for every file (for example: filename, serial number, or serial letter) to prevent files from overwriting each other. 15. Select an option for error processing from the Errors drop down menu: Stop for Errors to suspend the process until you confirm the error message. Log Errors to File to record each error in a file without stopping the process.
