Hi Everyone,

Thought I’d kick the week off by giving you a ‘heads up‘ about the next issue of Practical Photoshop Magazine

Due to hit the shelves any day now, in this latest issue (17) I’ve a 7 page article showing the complete retouch of one of my recent series of pictures Rock DJ.

Throughout the tutorial I take you through a whole mix of techniques including:

  • Dodging & Burning
  • Adding Details
  • Extractions & Refine Edge
  • Adding Smoke using Blend Modes
  • Making light beams
  • Coloured Lighting Effects and more…

In addition to the written tutorial I’ve also recorded a video which is included on a CD with the magazine and also has the image files so you can work through the very same image from start to finish; hope you like it.

Hey on the subject of Practical Photoshop Magazine in addition to retouching walk throughs I’m also going to be adding shorter articles covering different aspects of Photoshop. I’ve a few already lined up but if there’s anything specific you’d like me to cover then feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email and I’ll be sure to work it in.

Right I’m off so have a great Monday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
Glyn 🙂

    They don’t sell this magazine where I live (Peru). Any other way to obtain/view the article without buying the magazine? Cheers, Dustin!

    Hi Glyn,
    I’m not able to buy the magazine due to geographical problem. Is there any way for me to view the article?

    David / Dustin,

    I don’t know about Glyn having the article posted elsewhere, but the paper based Practical Photoshop magazine is available in electronic versions too.

    – Zinio offer an eletronic version of the paper mag which can be viewed on a computer or tablet device –

    – Ipad owners have the additional option of a Practical Photoshop app which allows you to purchase digital editions of the magazine that sit within the Apple Newstand app –

    Hope that helps,

      Top man…cheers for posting that David 😉
