Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by.

Today I have a Photoshop retouching video that I’ve recorded for you.

This is video 1 of 3 where I’ll be showing you all the retouching steps that went into making my Madame Spooky picture.

This first video is likely to the the longest of the all running for roughly 30 minutes and the reason for that is that it covers some extra information at the start about Lightroom Preferences etc…

  • How and why I export images from Lightroom as Smart Objects
  • Double RAW conversion
  • Removing blemishes
  • Work on the eyes (Whitening, Brightening, Adding Colour)
  • Whitening the teeth
  • Luminosity Contrast
  • Dodging and Burning

In the second video I’ll cover softening the skin, whitening the skin, enlarging the head plus prepping the image for the floor and background will be uploaded later today and available real soon.

In the mean time though it would be great if you could let others know of the tutorial by sharing it across your social media or any other cool places you hang out 🙂

Right, must dash…things to do, places to go and people to see.

Have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
Enjoy,
Glyn

    Thanks Glyn for sharing you’re PS skills with us.

    Excellent tutorial. Couldn’t be better. Everything you do really
    enhances the picture of Nadine.

    My own head is swolen (is that spelled correctly?) too.

    Regards,
