Photo touchup 101 tutorial
This has been done a thousand times and probably better than I have done. Nevertheless, I’ve included a PDF for you to download in order to get some of the basics for making good portrait pictures great by using a couple of simple techniques. When you’ve gone through this, do a search for ‘photo touchup tutorials’ and see what you get.
Using these basic 101-style techniques you can be the talk of your family with your photographic skills (I know because I’m that family member). A simple understanding of Layer Masks will open up new doors of creative touch up. Enjoy.
