It's hidden under the hand tool in CS6

Benny, it's the rotate tool. I think it came out in CS5 or so. On my system the R key takes me there. If R brings up your rulers try CMD+R. The tool itself is behind the hand tool in the tool bar.

Damn. I searched everywhere using the word "rotate", and no result. Thanks.

original artwork
retouched artwork
*
curve move for contrast and look
hue sat layer to go with prior move

Then folder of silos (everything has a silo with moves contained therein):
foreground folder, a silo of person etc (this folder includes more folders with skin, jewelry, clothes, etc)
background folder, the inverse of the foreground silo.

grain layer depending on the image usually a fine grain but it depends it's not one size fits all.

* Final thing is to sharpen the image (and it's subtle) right between the retouched artwork and initial curve move.

Not all places do it like this I have seen/worked with simpler file structures but I never worked on the really nice A-list editorial/beauty/advertising images at those places. Lots and lots of curves mostly for color and/or density moves.
What do you mean by "silo"? Never heard this word before

Short for "silhouette", pretty much a detailed exacting mask.
