  • Repairing shadows

    I think all these tutorials are great. I'm having a big problem with shadows especially in large areas.Is there a tutorial on this? Is there a gerneral rule of thumb for this? Please help a person seeking knowledge on all aspects of Photoshop.

          Problem with shadows I think.
          by Canna W
          I tried to post this pic as a regular pic at flickr, but one of my friends picked up that it was a composite.
