    Re: bad textures

    As far as chest and that "bigger" texture you've got to Dodge and burn.

    Local texture, pimples etc you fix by cloning and healing, but only use brushes that are slightly bigger than the every single pimple you're trying to smooth out, do the ones that are most prominent first etc.

    For that "crispy" look, you need to only sharpen what is absolutely necessary, not all over(use mask to isolate the effect).

    And please fix that background mask(shoulder and neck mostly).

    P.S. It's a good image as it is, keep on shooting and evolve your retouching with every new image that you do.

    Check out Natalia Taffarel DVD, it has all the basis of retouching in it.

      Recently I was working on an image for a client. I was doing my normal everyday skin work to some models who had devastating skin. As I was working, a question that a attendee to my Las Vegas retouching class asked popped into my mind.

      Texturizer Problems - Help!
      by Jakaleena
      Hey guys,

      I just scanned some denim material for use as a texture, but when I use it there's a seam showing. I've tried everything I can think of but I can't get the seam to go away. The vertical seam seems fine, it's the horizontal seam that's the problem.

      Can anyone...
