Pageant Enhancement

I have been trying to learn how to do this, and have had some people send me photos to use for practice. Here is one of the photos sent to me, but I have no clue where to begin, I have looked at some glamour tutorials, but they look like jibberish to me

Can someone please help me or point me in the right direction on where to start and how to do these?

Cheryl

Can you offer some specifics?

What part of the child are you trying to enhance? Whiten the eyes, change the iris color, colorize the cheeks? What's the goal?

Everything...

I have to make the skin look smoother, light makeup, whiten the eyes, everything that is required in a pageant enhancement. I just don't know how to do any of it

Are you on a deadline with this?

What software are you using?

No Deadline

She gave me this to use for practice. I just really want to learn.

I have Photoshop7, PSP7,9,X - which ever is great.

Thank You

If you really are serious about learning...

The experts here are truly amazing. But if you want some superb books, I would definately purchase anything by Katrin Eismann. TRUST me on this! www.digitalretouch.org is Katrin's site. But I think you can get them used on Amazon. Also, check out "the glitterguru on Photoshop From Concept to Cool" by Suzette Troche-Stapp.

Thank You.

I have heard great stuff about her work and books, money is just way tight right now that I can't get one.. not even from Amazon, atleast not for another month or 2.

Thats part of the reason I came here. Is there an easy to understand tutorial on the internet? even if its only covering one thing at a time?

are you familiar with masking in PS?

If so, you can start by masking off the different sections of the baby's face and outfit. You're going to have to work on each one of those sections separately anyway.

This is just a quickie...

But it looks a little better. Iris's a little bluer, skins a little smoother, lips a little pinker. Don't want to go too far with a little one. Would look "fake".

Masks

I am still new with PS, but I think I can figure out the masks, I am a fast learner.

How did you do everything to her photo? like the eyes and the skin and the lips?
