Retouching books and DVD tutorials

Hi. Could you recommend me some good books or DVD tutorials about retouching.
I already watched DVD tutorials from Chris Orwig. It was really informational, but I want more. I heard about Kelby training DVDs as well... I would be greatful for more tips.

Adobe Photoshop Restoration & Retouching - Katrin Eismann

Check the reviews at Amazon and search here at RP for other opinions. This book is considered by many to be the best around on retouching. Restoration topics excellent too.

She does DVDs too if you prefer that format. They are very good too.

Re: Retouching books and DVD tutorials

Hey,
I'm new at retouching, so I'm looking for same now. As far as I have encountered, Orwig's dvd's are great, cause he provides a lot of techniques and tips.
I really enjoyed watching Guy Gowan's "Cosmetique techniques" as well—he introduced me to calculations and working with channels. I also have his "Retouching workflow", though haven't seen it yet.
I could also recommend Gnomon workshop—Photographic Retouching in Adobe Photoshop with Meghan Farrell. Workflow was totally revealed during retouching two photographs in 13 clips.
And the last one—it's not about retouching, but close to it—I found my knowledge of channels insufficient—so I watched Photoshop CS3 Channels and Masks Advanced Techniques, to understand better how stuff works, like channel mixer and calculations, and what I can do with them.
Hope smth of it will be useful to you.

Thanks for the tips!
BTW, I just found this trailer to a retouching DVD from Calvin Hollywood. It looks absolutely amazing, but its in german and his Photoshop is also in german - what a pity

Re: Retouching books and DVD tutorials

It looks fun, thanks!
No reason for being upset! I think this entry would be useful—http://www.calvinhollywood-blog.com/...s-this-sunday/
Calvin says that he'll produce an English DVD this winter, sounds good for me.
Also I'll try to join the webinar this Sunday.

The Jessica Loew one is pretty good, quite cheap too.

Stay away from the DigitalPhotoshopRetouch one though. Rip off.
