RetouchPRO LIVE with Steve Caplin - 06/27/12
"Advanced Layer Masks"
RetouchPRO LIVE is a live talk show where we chat with an artist as we watch them at work. The audience helps guide the course of the conversation with their questions and comments. This is not a canned presentation or studio-produced tutorial. It's extemporaneous and candid, and as in-depth as the audience requests it to be.
Steve Caplin is a graphic artist specialising in photomontage illustration. His work appears regularly in newspapers (including The Guardian, L'Internazionale, The Sunday Telegraph and The Independent) and magazines (including Radio Times, Men's Health, Reader's Digest and many others).
Steve's advertising work has included commissions from Saatchi & Saatchi, Lowe Howard Spink, M&C Saatchi and Bartle Bogle Hegarty, for which he has won two Campaign Poster Awards and a D&AD award. Steve is also a Contributing Editor for MacUser magazine.
His books include Art and Design in Photoshop and the How to Cheat in Photoshop series.
No one clarifies complex commands in Photoshop quite as well as Steve Caplin. He thinks visually and explains visually, so he can demonstrate even the simplest Photoshop concept in such a way that even advanced users will go "a-HA!", while still remaining approachable and understandable to the newest user. Plus he's incredibly fun to watch thinking on his feet in response to audience comments and questions.
For our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE show, Steve will go far beyond the basic layer mask methods he demonstrated on his previous layer masks show. We'll presume you're already comfortable with masks (or have at least reviewed Steve's previous show) and explore the many advanced layer mask techniques This include generating masks from color ranges, refining masks, using Refine Edge multiple times for different mask regions, smudging layer masks, painting on hidden masks, and a lot more.

User comments about RetouchPRO LIVE:
"It really felt like a private 2-hour class where you get to ask specific questions which you wouldn't get a chance to otherwise."
"The quality of streaming was great, no problems at all, and I could see a difference in colour when adjusted by 1%."
"This was without a doubt a stroke of genius to plan, put together, and execute a class like this. It is nearly perfect for those of us who have a tough time physically as well as financially traveling to other locations for classes."
"...best thing for Photoshop and fotogs on the web. Period."
