Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

Always do your pixel edits beneath your colour layers when you can. Thats to maintain as much non-destructive flexibility as you can for amends.

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

I shoot in raw so first I make the usual corrections, exposure, sat, contrast, etc in bibble pro before exporting to cs3. I make a dup layer to fix the blemishes. Next is degrunge. After that I save a psd copy.
I have an action that I run that makes a border and smart sharpens, then I add on my (C) if need be. I save another psd and resize for the web at 72 dpi. I'm still new and learned most of stuff from here

You can see my work here, all of the studio pix are using degrunge.

Good luck

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

From what I've read:

Overall Color correction-curves
Tone corrections - black point, white point etc.
Usually skin first - blemishes, wrinkles, redness etc.
All other retouching - always working on new layers
Image resizing if necessary
Sharpen last if necessary
Save PSD , then save to final tiff or whatever you like

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

for all that was said above I also do first notes (on transparent layer) what I need to do with photo, kinda a plan. Then copy background and put it on top of all the layers and keep it off. In this case you will have the original and can turn it on and off all the time and see either you overdoing it or need to do more. (and if you have like 15 layers you don't need to turn them all off to see the original)
