7 Bad Habits of a highly ineffective Retoucher

7 Bad Habits of a highly ineffective Retoucher
Or titled I wish I sucked less lol so thinking a loud as what keeps me from improving and point to issues I see over and over feel free to add in if you have any advice on bad habits to work on and change. In No particular order here they are:

1. Rushing work:
It’s always a problem have to sit back and take it easy work proof treat it like a fine wine no reward for speed quality is what counts.

2. Working while sleepy or tired:
Duh yeah I really wanted it to look that way tired eyes are clueless eyes.

3. Plugin use just because I purchased it:
Well it’s just a tool not all tools for all jobs lol I find myself trying to find a need to use plugins that well really aren’t needed because I purchased them.

4. Not Checking the output:
More than once I downsize for the web and uploaded an image just to go what the heck is that PS must have a bug in it or actually I do to much band pass and images can get wonky.

5. Shortcuts and more shortcuts:
Some times certain things cannot be done well if you don’t take all the steps macros and actions are great but certain settings need to figured out on a image by image basis but I always try to find an easy out lol.

6. Paying attention to detail:
Instead of paying attention to forums, TV, video games people yada yada while editing.

7. Finishing:
Just like this list lol it’s the final touches that can make or break a image so finish it for goodness sake go over the image multiple times at different percentages and views actually walk away take a break and then do the final review…

So that’s why I suck anyone else???

* Take constructive criticism hell who am I kidding did you just call my baby ugly them fighting words lol....
