Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Ok, I just had to try this technique. Please let me know what you think. It's my first time using this.

Ant, seems like you ruined my retouch!

Most of the time I spent on removing your "not always easy to understand" felt-tip marks.

Anyway, thanks for your comment.

The usual techniques, I would say. I don't think there are any secrets in here,... only errors.
And it's always good to hear that someone points them out for me.

I do like this one.
I dont like how alot of people are turning her so pale and white,
And i think this one keeps alot of the healthy tanned glow in the photo.

There isn't. One by one. There aren't any magic bullet filters unless you're just trying to please yourself. Ro's Degrunge technique is a powerful tool, but not if it's the only one you use. Likewise the more complex version he also described, using multiple high pass layers. All are just tools, and, like the cloning tool or curves, the minute you leave evidence that you've used it, you've lost the game. The only way you win is if no one can tell you were there.

Everyone says "Natural! Make it look real," and of course, that's a crock. No one looks like this.Anywhere. Ever. Not even Tyra Banks. (She's close, though). The standard today is a long way from the air brushed slick surfaces of Playboy centerfolds from the 70s, but the fantasy is no less rigid. The fantasy now is that this "might" be real skin, and you "might" even find it on someone living next door to you, it's just perfectly flawless "real" skin. (And you won't find it next door, either.)

Here's an effort with just dodging/burning and healing. If it was a real job, I'd probably consider it about half done.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

My take on your photo. Hope you don't mind me playing with it. I took out the catchlights in her eyes, and added some eyeshadow. Hope it looks decent.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Ant...I really like this example you provided. Not just the skin, but the lips and the eyes. The moisture seen on the lips and in the eyes is really nice.
