Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Gry Garness Feedback

It was great to see how Gry work. This was a very good complement to Gry's book I just bought. Thanks for making this happen! I'll definitely
catch her next one! (And I'll make sure to use Safari and not Firefox to watch it.)

I did find the commentary distracting - I'm used to having the presenter go through their entire presentation without interruption and then take all questions at the end. It's hard to hold the questions until the end, but this keeps things on track and nothing gets left out because of lack of time.

Also, as others have said, it would be great if the session could be recorded and made available "on demand".

Thanks again and can't wait for Gry's next event! :-)

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Gry Garness Feedback

Gry has put up a page for the Configurator panel she demonstrated. She's also uploaded it to Adobe Exchange, but says it might take a couple of days to actually show up there.

Here's the link to Gry's page
Here's the link to the Adobe Exchange page

Remember that Photoshop CS4 is needed to run the panel. And also, this panel is more to show what Configurator can do, rather than to be of actual production use.

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Gry Garness Feedback

This was a quality broadcast, and I'll invest in her books soon. One thing I'm confused on though is how to determine what values the eyes should be, right at the start, using curves. I'm not really sure what to be looking for here, and how to work out what values to change the rgb channels in the curves layer to. Could anyone PM me this information? It's the only thing I can't get my head around. Cheers!

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Gry Garness Feedback

this is what I captured:
put a sampler in the black pupil and one in the white of the eyes.
kids white is more blue
teenagers neutral
as we age more red than green
old people more yellow

for the woman she gave 216/209/203 for the whites
50/49/50 for the pupil

someone explain the reason for her shift to 233...that is where I got lost....

Loved the presentation, very well done, will be looking forward to more webinars on these subjects. Would like to have her reference sections of her CS4 book that covered the areas that she was talking in.
Excellent job, keep up the good work.

She first color corrected the whole image based on the eye colors. Then she decided a slightly brighter image (or eye white, I'm not sure if this affected the whole image). So, first a color correction, then a brightness boost. This is the reason you saw a jump in the numbers.

The only chapter that talks about skin and only chapter usable in the very outdated book by Lee Varis 'Skin' talks about the correct numbers for skin, but I think on the Internet you get more (and better) information, and of course a chapter in the highly recommended book by Gry Garness.

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE - Gry Garness Feedback

Thanks Doug -- Appreciate Gry's sharing & you putting it together for us. Just discovered you guys about a week ago after purchasing Gry's CS3 eBook (yes, I haven't yet moved on to CS4). Decided to join up here after viewing. Loved the rebroadcast and the detailed techniques she covered. The broadcast itself cut out only once for a couple minutes near the beginning, but was perfect after that.
