Red:Hair clean up
Blue: heal
Green: sharpen, looks soft in the small thumbnail.
Yellow:dodge

Thank you very much!
So what technique can suggest for that? so that i'll research it in here.

Red: even color background = just paint over it with same color
Green: any sharpener then make layer mask all black then paint white over the bracelet

Is this guy for real?

When you go out to eat and you have a good meal, do you walk back to the kitchen and explain to the chef that you sometimes cook at home for your family, and then ask him if he would be so kind as to jot down the recipe and where he gets his inredients from for the dish you just scarfed down?

woa! I'm just asking there sir, if its ok with him. but I understand what his trying to say and explain sir, that's why I'd just do it and try to retouch it by myself, as you can see, I uploaded some of them here so that I can get some comments/critics for me to know what's lacking or needs improvement. sorry sir!

A good start would be to improve the face or the hand/arm, they need to be normalised some to the same lighting, you could brighten the eyes, remove stray hairs etc

i think, ch33sewiz, that someone else needs to take your job. you cant ask people here to do YOUR job. i would suggest figuring it out on your own so u dont piss of a lot of people here...

Re: touch up a photo, please help

even though i think you are a bludger...
i took a crack at this photo
because i thought it would be fun

i tried the amy dresser technique on her arm
and i liquified it a bit
changed some colours around
bit of dodging and burning
overall sharpen
added a highlight to the hair

and some other things
took me about half an hour

anyone want to critique?











edit: i left the hairs in at the sides because without them the photo looked "overly photoshopped" i think it looks better with them there.
