I have tried the Glitter Guru's way of retouching on several pieces. Attached is one of those for you to check out.

Maybe they've used a program like NeatImage? I think there's a plug-in for Photoshop.

edit: Here's a link for a swedish forum where it's demonstrated

New Document Window?

DigiCore,

Can you please tell me how to get two versions of the same file on one screen. I am interested in using the Glitter Guru tutorial that was linked but can't for the life of me do the first step: "...Then choose windows --documents-- new window. You will now have two versions of the same file on screen."

I am using PS CS2 and there is no Windows > Documents > New Window.

If anyone can tell me how to get this new window of the same document I would be grateful.

rnbluvva,
Here's how you do it in CS2
Window > Arrange > New Window for...

Her book goes into more detail on her technique, I highly recommend it.

Thanks so much DigiCore! Yes GG's book is on my list of 'to gets'. I have perused it at Borders and it has a lot of great stuff in it!

Hi Larbear. Welcome to RetouchPro!
You've achieved a striking effect. There is only a problem above the eye and along the jaw near the ear.

I'm more of a traditionalist when it comes to glamour: more pores, less oil .

Thanks for the input, I wondered about the jaw line after I figured out how to upload the image Just plain missed the eye though. Looking forward to participating in this group, sure looks like there is alot of talent out there. I welcome all the input I can get, hope I can contribute back as well.

Larbear, Welcome.

One suggestion I might have is to maybe bring up the brightness level a just a touch to open the face up a little bit.

I like your skin tones.

Your smoothing effect was very good - I know its a small image - but it seems like you may not have brought the smoothing over the whole right cheek (by the nose) and down to the top right lip area. Id like to see the same smoothing continue in these areas because it was so good.
