Welcome to RetouchPro. I went to your web site and see that you are very talented. It looks like you are a pro at glamorizing photos! I can’t wait to see some of your entries on this site. So stick around and try out some of the challenges, and don't be afraid to comment and teach us some of your techniques!

Thanks Sjm

I'm using Photoshop 7 for all my design work and they have a great new tool called "healing brush tool" as I always start working with. Then I'm painting with my "brush tool" til I get it just right. I paint in different layers using not more then opacity 20... When I feel I'm finished with the picture I always end up using the "blur tool" to get the shiny look.

Hope that helps

Maa

Welcome!
Just visited your website, very nice! You've done some lovely retouch work, and skillful makeup application.

I've just recently started in the field of portrait retouching, and would be interested in reading more about your technique for achieving that very smooth look.

Boy, you've only just arrived, and we're picking your brain already!
(we do that a lot here).
