Re: d&b tutorial download

Karin. i think it's the fact that the extreme contrast tools layer will lie a bit about whats actually in the image and you may overdo the adjustment where it should have been a bit more subtle and also miss areas to adjust completely. So you need to switch back and forth a bit more.

The dual curves give you more control if you need it but needs to switch between layers to change between burn and dodge.The softlight is very quick to switch between burn and dodge but shadows and highlights will be on the same layer so if you wish to adjust them separately it wont be done easily.

The end result is the end result however, regardless if you used dual curves or soft light layer. It is your experience as a retoucher that will let you decide which one to use at any given image and when.

Oh and yes, if you overdo D&B it will look like a blurred skin effect since the technique in itself when applied to pore details will flatten the contrast (and contrast gives us the sharpness in the details). So being able to adjust the dodge & burn separately in this case is quite useful.

Re: d&b tutorial download

Hi Cli
Yes, I agree that an adjustment layer is more eficient than a pixel layer.
But why the luminosity blending mode?

if you go here you can see the work of the person who made the tutorial

i've used this technique a few times as well, and although my result wasnt THAT great (this was the first time trying it), you can check it out here.
