I can see what you tried to achieve, LaDair. I like that. But unfortunately you blew it with the catchlights, imo. And of course the hair remains a pain.

Brenda,

To mask out the shadow:

Dupicate the background>> make new layer under that duplicate>> fill new with whatever background you want>> Erase the unwanted areas in the copyied background... select the unwanted then click delete..or.. just use the eraser to reveil the background.

Hope this helps,
-Keven

Well Rokcet, that's what nice about opinions. Everyone has one. Mine is, obviously the opposite or I wouldn't have posted it in the first place.

As far as the hair it needed digitally combed anyway. The clump that was sticking out (picture right) when separated from the shadow was totally out of place and made the overall shot look worse. It should have been taken care of before the shot was taken and since it wasn't there was no need to keep the reality of a wayward clump of hair.

Re: plkease I need retouching tonight

Here's my take on the 2 images. I didn't replace the white background.

Re: plkease I need retouching tonight

First I would do the corrections & then change the background.

The white one can use a background, but I think the red one looks just about right. I am leaving the house right now, but I'll be back later tonight.

Are you kidding? No offense, but I see why you only charge $8 a picture.

I guess thats the difference between $8 per image and $250 an hour for retouching. Just out of curiosity, what do you spend your $8 for all that hard work on? A latte and a biscotti at Starbucks?

Look Im not trying to be a dick or anything, but all of the examples everyone has put up here are really pitiful. If you need sugarcoating well, sorry your not gonna get it from me. the picture went from a shitty picture to begin with, to downright awful after everyone took their licks at "retouching it". I sure hope you guys dont wipe your ass with the same attention to detail that you work on images LOL

And Lolli, you really need to take a better picture to begin with!

Sorry for the brashness, but if anyone is going to disagree with some legitimate response Im all ears
