Course Overview

Unlike many of the basic Photoshop courses out there, this one focuses on the much sort after skills of photo retouching. Starting with the basics, we’ll teach you simple but effective techniques to remove blemishes, iron out wrinkles, wipe out stray hairs, and prep your images for more detailed retouching.

From there we’ll introduce you to professional skin enhancing techniques such as high pass filters, blur layers, and other tips to smoothing out your model’s skin. We’ll also teach you how to use light and shadow effectively, and show you methods in dodging and burning for that sculptured look.

The final part of the course will cover retouching those finer details such as lips, eyes, and fingernails. You’ll learn valuable skills with the Liquify tool, and we’ll teach you how to judge what should and should not be retouched. We’ll also give you advice on filters and cropping, to achieve that finishing touch.
