Retouching workflow

Another question from me...

I was wondering what is your workflow when retouching. What do you do first, what at the and. How do you organize your layers in photoshop, which layers are in the bottom which ones on the top, do you use groups, etc...

Also, when you are using clone stamp or healing brush (for strain hair, bigger imperfections,...) do you use an empty layer and heal there with "sample from all layers" option on, or do you merge all layers on top and correct there? Or maybe completely different method?

I would be really happy if some of you pros would give a few tips, hints, directions about this.

Thanks a lot!!!

Re: Retouching workflow

The Golden Rule.

Organize everything the way I'd like to pick it up. Named layers. No dead ends or erased layers. Good, clean layer masks on everything.
