Re: newbies work :)

Well it all depends on the image. When you are new to the technique it can take you 5 or 6 hours and maybe more. Try to select good pictures to retouch, the better the picture the better the results. There are other steps to follow after the D B, like color correction using adjustment layers and sharpen the image, and by the way, you might want to change the eyes color or brighten them, just play around with these... And of course if you can get a tablet you can cut work time maybe to 3 or 4 hours. As you go practicing you get more used to it and you'll find it easier...

I almost forget. 1rst of all, You might want to liquify some parts of the face like the nose or chin, and then clean up the blemishes and blotches using the healing tool before getting into D&B.

Good luck.
