I've been a pretty avid user of Photoshop for some time. I like to re-touch my photos, or my favourite ones, before putting them on Flickr, Facebook etc. Its nice to look back on near-perfect pictures, I think. Anyway. Currently, my photoshop method relies on removing blemishes with the blemish tool, using a surface blur on the skin, adding some shadows, and then using diffuse glow to top it off. My pictures never quite look like the 'airbrushed' ones you see in magazines, or even in YouTube and blogspot videos. I want that nice creamy skin - whilst still keeping texture, just blemishless, vibrant eyes and hair, and a nice balance of colour with the attention left on the face. I want it as near as possible, I guess. Is there a detailed guide somewhere which someone works from, or would someone be so kind as to post one. I've seen a DVD for £150 which teaches you the step by step methods - and the results are breath taking. One persons work I particularily love is www.bressane.com Anyway, I look forward to hearing your replies K.
