When it comes to portraits, everyone wants to look their best. But with today’s high-resolution SLRs, every spot, blemish and flaw can appear in startling detail. There are of course a few shooting techniques you can use to minimise these, such as bouncing light with reflectors to avoid strong shadows, and using off-camera flash to control the direction of the light to complement the model. However, you don’t need to get bogged down with different techniques and equipment to get great portraits, because Elements has a range of tools specially designed for seamless Photoshop retouching.
In this Photoshop tutorial we’ll show you how to retouch photos like a pro in 10 steps, using Free Transform and Liquify. We also show you how to clean up skin using the Healing Brush and Clone Stamp, how to smooth skin with Gaussian Blur and lighten it using Curves, as well as how to remove unwanted colour using Selective Color
