I saw the opportunity for a tip here.

You wouldn't need to turn the visibility of all (for example) 15 layers off one by one. You'd either;

A: Alt or Option click the original layer to hide all the other layers.

B: Put those 15 layers into a group so you only have one eyeball visibility icon to click.

C: and D (maybe E as well...)

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

I just share what is convenient for me There are so many shortcuts in PS so I'm using only the main ones. Otherwise feels like your brain is the sequence of shortcuts

Re: Glamour portrait workflow...

Here's my (simplified) workflow which varies depending on the image:

1. Copy background layer
2. Clean background and extend if necessary
3. Clean minor skin problems with healing brush and/or clone stamp
4. Finish cleaning skin imperfections with a soft light 50% grey (and/or curves) D&B layer
5. Adjust specific areas and skin tones with selective color, hue-saturation and/or curves
6. Adjust makeup/hair
7. Add highlights/shadows with a new D&B layer
8. Paint in more highlights (if needed) with white brush
9. Adjust overall brightness/contrast with a curves and/or levels layer (I do this earlier if the photo is too dark)
10. Adjust overall color
11. Adjust sharpness (if needed)
12. Save image and duplicate
13. Flatten duplicated image and crop

I do all of my work on separate layers and would be lost without layer masks and my Wacom!

i always find using the history pallet easiest and most convenient. By clicking the top one, you go back to the beginning, then i just use ctrl+z back and forth.
