Hi All

Ill introduce myself first before asking my question.

I have just returned to photography after a break of some years (too many). Just bought myself my first real digital camera a Cannon 450d. I know how to use a camera to best effects and have played with the photoshop programs so know some of the basics.

Now to my question. I have been using (poor word but it will do) my wife as a model and due to life there are some areas that require attention. Ive managed to do skin touch ups and some other tricks but found this on my internet travels...

What plugin or pen is being used here. I would appreciate any help that you could give.

And I look forward to trying to help other in return

Re: Hi All

Julian provided some good links. Be sure to view them.
Always work on a merged up layer (Ctrl-Alt-Shft-E) and use a larger diameter pen than you normally use. If it's important, work different parts on separate layers. That way you can always make/delete minor adjustments.
Try to work with just the edges. Working on interior parts of the image can lead to unwanted tell-tale signs that it was done, i.e. distorted freckles, skin smoothing, loss of color detail, etc.

Re: Hi All

Thanks for your replies. I have spent some time watching them and realising that youtube has a good collection of tutorials. I suppose I will only learn via mistakes so have been working in layered images for some while.

I have completed one photo and will have to post it but I need to reduce it considerably first!

Thanks again
