  • Can't get proportions right

    My husband has a fun feature on his phone that picks the best face in a series of photos. Unfortunately his phone didn't even recognize my sweet baby's face as a face and mishmashed her face together from the series of photos. I've tried bringing facial features up and down, but it's just not looking right. I'm not sure if I should leave her with a giant forehead or bring in the colors around her. Any ideas?

    lemc227, Welcome to RetouchPRO
    Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
    Poke around, have fun!

    Brought the top part down on a copied layer, lined up the eyes then cloned the leftovers out.... a little cloning and healing and here you are

      This happens a lot. Most of the time on a cell phone.
      Larger one if wanted.

        Her forehead, though larger here, looks right and more like her actual appearance. Now I know what direction to head in - thanks!!!

          Thought I'd give it a go.

              Need Brutal Honesty

              I really need to get some feed back on what I'm doing. I only have very small files to work with right now, so it's affecting the quality, but I need some feed back. I know in this one the step wedged transitions need to be fixed and the shadow on her forehead, but other than that ... what's working...

              Were Photos In New Yorker Altered? Need guidance
              by aloneatlast
              You may have read the New Yorker article about the retoucher of models, Pascal Dangin.

              My question concerns the photos the New Yorker included in the piece, to show his skill. They can be seen here:


              The idea is the bottom photo...
