retouching

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by Corwyn, Aug 15, 2009.

  1. So this thread got me thinking.

    I really need to learn how to do some of this stuff to improve some of the quality of my portraits, but I am really clueless about how to do these techniques.

    I have PS 7 and have tried to play with it and follow some of the online tutorials, but I am not getting anywhere really productive.

    I was wondering if you all could recommend some books that do a good job of teaching these techniques.

    Also, is PS 7 OK for this or is part of my problem that I am just not using the right software?

    Yes, PS7 is OK for that. I highly recommend Photoshop Mama's tutorials. Photoshopmama.net [NET - I keep confusing with .org and .com]. She also has quite a nice assortment of tutorials on youtube.
