retouching white beauty

Hello,
After a too long period of absence, i'm back ;-)
As i am familiar with advertising retouching and photography, i'm digging into beautyretouching.
So, for start, i used a rights-free picture (from DPR) and did my first beautyretouch. Here's the picture before and after. The original image is 5700 pix on 300dpi, and there still lots of skintexture, and flawless.
What do you think?

The way you fixed the hair was pretty clever. Wild hair is the toughest for me to fix; I tend to go a bit overboard. You managed it very minimally.

The biggest size it's too small to judge.

Also, you need to credit the photographer.

Re: retouching white beauty

CORRECTION: Please refer to Godmother's clarification on this issue in the next post.

I LIKE WHAT YOU DID!

[I don't think you need to credit anyone... in fact, if this is a DPR, Royalty-free - sometimes called rights-free - as opposed to Rights Managed stock photograph. A rights-free contract - such as those listed in Shutterstock and other Stock Photo Sites have long lists of agreement terms and usage rights, as well as what you cannot do with them. Such as Resell the image, print it on T-shirt, mugs, etc.. But rarely, if ever, have I seen a royalty free image site that states you need to credit the photographer. Rights Managed - Yes. Royalty free - No.]

Good for stock photography - not pertinent to this issue.

Re: retouching white beauty

Godmother,

I stand corrected! Wrong acronym and and wrong medium. I guess I got thrown by the rights free (common term in the advertising world) terminology. I defer to your expertise and awareness in this area.

Others who read my post... please disregard as it applies to this image. Defer to Godmother's response.

I do like what you did Kristof.

Re: retouching white beauty

I think it's always good form to credit the photographer, the model, the website -- whomever we can whenever we know those details. Whether or not it's customary or legally required to do so. Not doing so just because we don't have to (or because we feel we don't have to) is just not the right way to do things, from my perspective.

Everyone deserves credit for what they do, and just because stock agencies or whomever make people sign themselves into anonymity doesn't mean we have to - or should - do the same to others' work.

Nabbed the images from DPR ... thanks for making them available

Had a quick go at the same image as in the first post in this thread, didn't get a chance to finish it completely before bedtime ... but had a lot of fun with it

Re: retouching white beauty

In regards to the terms and conditions it says the file retouched cannot be greater than 800x600 pixels for web and public viewing. How the hell can anyone get a good look at a retouched pic at that size???
