Re: touch up a photo, please help

I dont understand... if you new to retouching, how did you get a job for a mag as a retoucher... I dont understand what the real problem is, the photo is not bad... it shouldnt be that hard to fix. The only problem may be the actual size of the image being small. But I see good detail and model has good skin

Secondly, every mag has there own style and someone just editing the picture without direction is just shooting in the dark. Past covers or guidence would help here.

Lastly, I agree, it does not sound like your asking for help, more of a favor. If this was for you or a family member I would try may hand. But as this is going to be a cover for a mag... something that is going to make you or someone money... this should have some sort of compensation.

I'll try editing it later for fun... but im only going to post a small thumbnail.

OK it’s finally done... I think. Honestly I did too much to say it all... As I asked for DIRECTION and never got any, I just did what I felt looked good.

Let me know what you all think. Comments welcome.

I did two versions, one regular and the other sepia. The originals below are there for comparison reasons. There a bit soft from the output reduction.

Re: touch up a photo, please help

Hi, sorry, been busy!
Firstly thank you very much for what you did for the photo.
Im not a retoucher in the mag, im just a layout artist, layouting spreads. i was just ask if i could edit/retouch the cover photo, so that it looks good when printed. but im very new to retouching portrait photo for magazine, and i dont have the time at the moment to study tutorials, but im on it now, just struggling

about the retouching of the photo, you can retouch whatever you like, i just need a some ideas how did you that, so i can also practice it. a workflow, so that i will follow it on our every cover. thanks a lot

and...hmmm.. can you give me a hires copy of the sepia one, a psd perhaps, so that i can study it. can i?
a huge favor!
