Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

Started in mid-2002 with PS7, then CS, then CS3, now CS5.

Vast majority of work is restoration & reconstruction, both commercial and volunteer for Operation Photo Rescue, plus freebies for a few friends. Occasional commercial product retouch/color change/color match/corrections.

32bit W7 Home Premium, I-5 Quad @ 2.66 Ghz, 4GB DDR3

The only plug-in I employ is FFT, though I've tried Neat Image, Polaroid D&S remover and a few I've forgotten. Haven't found anything (other than FFT) that works as well or is as predictable as PS's native abilities. ESPECIALLY with CS5.

I'd appreciate any observations regarding my opinion of plug-ins.

Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

I'm using Photoshop CS5 32-bit for retouching (portrait, headshots, beauty, fashion, etc.) Nik and Noise Ninja are main plug-ins although I seldom use plug-ins in my retouching unless the client requests a certain look where a plug might help accomplish that.

Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit
4 Gig Ram
Photoshop CS5 Extended
Nik Software
Noise Ninja

Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

I use Photoshop for a wide variety of tasks, and not only "retouching".

Photoshop CS5 64-bit for everything (+Camera Raw for RAW images).
My own action sets to speed up frequency separation, sharpening, etc.
My own action sets to speed up batching conversions of images.
For batching I go Bridge > Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor.
I do have the FFT-plugin but I rarely encounter situations where it can be used.

Attached a few of my actions that I find useful while retouching.

Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

I may be a tad late to this party, but currently I use PSE 8 on a Windows platform. My statis is Hobbist, (but will take a buck or two, if someone wants to pay me). I may try out Paint Shop Pro, if the money situation improves.

Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

I have been full Time retoucher since photoshop 4, started with 2.5
Today i branched back to photography.

Really never used much plugins, as i always ditched them after trying them. It is only recently that i begun to use Nik color efex pro to some extent in the workflow. At some time i used some noise removal plugins, but not anymore, it was in the film scanning days.
Actions for conversion resize and sharpening.
PS CS5, Capture OnePro and Aperture for RAW, Mac computers, wacom tablets.

Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

Hi folks. Found this site and joined yesterday (or was it today?).

I'm a photographer, not a retoucher per se. While I have sent out work to be retouched, I have primarily done the bulk of my editing/fixing/retouching. I work on the Mac platform in 64-bit and my tools have been:
-Photoshop CS5
-Lightroom 4
-Adobe Camera Raw
-NIK software complete collection
-Wacom Intuos 4 tablet (am still getting comfortable with it)

I have used some Lightroom pre-sets but no Photoshop actions or plug-ins.

Thanks
