    Re: Attention to detail

    Someone did a great job. But it's the methods we all use. Of course you path everything out when it's a product shot, of course you use multiple images that show of parts of the product in the best way. Nothing out of this world.

      And your definition of "out of this world" is? What?

        Probably aliens.

        Seriously, I was thinking we're gonna see some thought process, not just a speed up.

        As you know, reasons are transferable image, and program to program, and tools are just tools.

        Still, great job, but I don't consider this to have a "before" and "after", as it is always a composite.

          I think much of the time people are looking for a specific formula. I've tried to point out to others that they often aren't looking for a set of actions but a way to navigate the process from start to finish.

            Gotta love the youtube comments!

            "I am curious, since all of the photographs were created on a closed controlled set, cannot the photographer adjust the lighting better to minimize the amount of retouching required to make the watch look good?"

            Sure.

            Besides the superb retouch, the watch is sexy as hell! On-par with the latest Speedmaster Chronograph, not that usual flashy gold rolex thing.

              In the comments it's said that's a sped up 2 hr retouch. I think 2 hrs is quite fast for that amount of work. Lotsa pathing.

                Two hours, my butt. I'll bet 50 to 100.

                  It shows at least the majority of the actions. You can see how fast the cursor moves. The video is 9 minutes. This would be a speedup of a bit more than 13 times if he finished in exactly 2 hours. Does that seem totally out of line with what you're watching (bleh couldn't resist)?

                    Great, keep it up. This is why photographers and designers think we can somehow finish 30 images a day. We're just machines, right? Who don't eat lunch, get up and stretch, you know…….

                      Ha! It would have taken me 2 hours to make the masks. Upside is I would have charged more!

                        Ugh. That's not what I meant. You could use a youtube downloader, load the resulting flv or whatever into an application that allows you to slow playback. Look at the factor used. Make note of any work skipped. I don't think I could have accomplished that in two hours, but I didn't go through the video in depth to see how many paths were cut or how much adjustment. You're also not examining a high resolution finished image. There might be little halos or something. Anyway I'll leave it at that.

                          Re: Attention to detail

                          This is about 40-60 hours of work. Whoever said 2 hours is delusional.

                          Great work, and a good post Benny. If anyone ever asks "Why should I learn the path tool" I'll show them this.

                            If you pause on some of the up close stuff, you'll see the work is fairly loose. The person who claimed two hours was the person who posted the video. Look at comments. I merely pointed out what parts were shown in the video and the appropriate time scaling for such a thing. You can see a lot of the edges are still quite rough if you look closely.

                              Just drawing the paths would take a while. all the selections, all the drawn highlights/shadows.....

                              If you think that's the appropriate time scaling for such a thing, I would like to hire you for some product retouch. It would take me 2 weeks to do all of it, but you can do it in a day

                                Hi all, i'm looking for resources regarding product retouching. All what i know is totally self learnt (classic retouch, brushing, color adj, etc). I need to improve the concept behind this kind of retouching like for exemple enchance the product and make it look better than it really is, make pop or...

                                Here is a baby photo I did for a client. Before and after both included. Also, please keep in mind, after compressing for display on the web some of the detail is lost and the contrast seems a bit different too. On the final large file everything is dark that's black and the tone is even.

                                Hi, I'm trying to get my first retouching job - I need some help/advice tips from pro's that do this kind of thing day to day.

                                Hi!

                                I shot some stuff at home for practicing how to retouch products.

                                The thing is, I don't know where I have to go with it...


                                I don't know how to continue:
                                what thing should I pay atention? What should I fix? What should I enhance?
