Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Silver Fox" with Amy Dresser

Wow! My first webinar with Amy Dresser, and I am hooked. I'll be watching the YouTube rentals this week. I'll probably start with this one again, Silver Fox, since there was so much great information that it will take me a few viewings to get it down. My head is spinning a little but I love it. Thanks so much!

Wow! this one has got to be your best show so far would love to see another one similar on portrait/headshot of real people or actors (a younger female prefer).

Yes, that was a great webinar.
Amy is very talented and has great feeling for retouching.
I would love to see some techniques that she uses a lot for Jill greenberg
to get that illustrative look

When I go to the youtube channel for additional webinar rentals I get a pop up that The videos are not available for my country (I live in the Netherlands by the way).
Will they be availlable anytime soon?

Anyway, I had a great time watching the show, keep up the good work!

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Silver Fox" with Amy Dresser

This was my very first webinar and it exceeded all expectations, although I must admit that I accassionally became lost on the way. (I use PSE 8 and I am not that familiar with CS 4, but it was well worth attending)
At one point my video feed froze even though I could still hear the audio. A quick exit and a restart cleared the problem.

I too, cannot get the U-tube videos in New Zealand. Perhaps they are not yet available outside the USA.

A most enjoyable experience and very well presented. Thank you.

Wow, this was fascinating. Loved the use of real people. Where do I do to ask about some of the techniques she used that I was not familiar with?

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Silver Fox" with Amy Dresser

Thank you,
When Amy opened the "silver fox" in photoshop she invoked a set of pre-recorded or saved actions. What were these actions and were they automatically applied or did she work through the actions one by one. I suspect the latter but I'm not sure.

regards

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Silver Fox" with Amy Dresser

OK, first question was how did she "pick a color layer? " How do you do that? And where did she pick the color from?

What is "stamp visible?"

It was difficult to see what she was doing. Is there some way to have the brush be a different color so that you could follow what she was doing when she was cloning etc?

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Silver Fox" with Amy Dresser

Let's see...

Amy's action makes the empty folders and layers she knows she'll eventually use. It also makes a copy of the background layer. So it doesn't "do" anything, just sets her stage.

Stamp visible is making a new layer that has the merged data from all the visible layers. I believe the shortcut is shift-ctrl-alt-E

Perhaps someone that watched today can help with the picking a color layer part. I monitor the broadcast software, but didn't actually watch today, so it's been a couple of weeks for me.

And Photoshop has no way to change the brush color.

How about what was the size of the feathering she used when she lightened and darkened areas of the face?
