(music playing) Hello, I'm Tim Grey. For 15 years, I've been working to help photographers make the most of their photographic images. That's included writing books and magazine articles, speaking at workshops and seminars around the world, and producing a variety of video training titles. One of the things I tend to focus on in my own photography, and when teaching photography to others, is to avoid distractions within the frame. In large part, that involves looking a little more closely at the subject through the viewfinder. And finding ways to ensure that everything in the frame adds to the overall photographic composition without creating distractions. Of course, sometimes those distractions can't be avoided. And sometimes you don't notice them, because you are so excited about the subject in front of your lens.

Whatever the reason, your going to find situations where you want to remove distractions or blemishes from your photos. And in this video workshop I'll help you master that task. I'll start by reviewing some of the overall concepts related to image cleanup, and then I'll dive in to the tools you'll typically use for cleaning up your images in Photoshop. We'll then take an in depth look at some of the cleanup techniques I recommend to help you work more efficiently, and produce results of higher quality. I'll then guide you through some more advanced cleanup methods that will help you cleanup images even with challenging blemishes.

Along the way, you will see many examples of the challenges you likely found within your own photographic images, but more importantly you will see real world solutions. So lets take a look together at some of my favorite tools and techniques for cleaning up blemishes in your digital photo.
