Photoshop Image Cleanup Workshop

with Tim Grey

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hello, I'm Tim Grey. I often joke that part of the reason I got to the point that I could write over a dozen books on Photoshop is that I wasn't a very good photographer and needed to fix a lot of problems with my images. Fortunately, I've become a better photographer over time. At least, I like to thing so. But good photographic technique won't solve every potential problem with your images. Throughout this course, I'm going to show you a wide variety of techniques for solving many different problems you might experience with your photographic images.

No matter how careful you are taking your photos, sometimes things go wrong. You end up with dust spots caused by image sensor contamination, objects that simply couldn't be avoided, or problems with color, exposure, or texture in the image. In this workshop, expert photographer and trainer Tim Grey shows you a wide variety of powerful techniques for solving many common challenges. Learn how to fix everything from simple blemishes and red eye to color contamination, chromatic aberration, and image noise, and discover advanced techniques like using multiple exposures to remove a subject from an image. Note: This course was recorded in Adobe Photoshop CS5, but was created with users of both Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS4 in mind.

Topics include:
  • The ethics of cleanup
  • Reviewing the image
  • Nondestructive cleanup
  • Cleanup tools and techniques

(music playing) Hello, I'm Tim Grey. I often joke that part of the reason I got to the point that I could write over a dozen books on Photoshop is that I wasn't a very good photographer and needed to fix a lot of problems with my images. Fortunately, I've become a better photographer over time. At least, I like to thing so. But good photographic technique won't solve every potential problem with your images. Throughout this course, I'm going to show you a wide variety of techniques for solving many different problems you might experience with your photographic images.

We'll start by exploring some of the concepts related to image cleanup in Photoshop. And then, take a look at the primary tools available for performing cleanup work on your images. Next, you'll learn a variety of different techniques you can use when cleaning up your images. And gain a sense of which tools and technigques should be used in particular situations. We'll then examine some of the more advanced techniques you can employ to create the best file result possible. To help apply the concepts you've learned, we'll also take a look at a variety of real-world projects that will allow us to blend various image cleanup techniques.

The images I use in each lesson are included in a project files folder, organized into folders by chapter name with file names that reflect the content of the photo. I encourage you to use these images to follow along as you go and practice the techniques you'll learn. Throughout this workshop, you'll learn many skills for optimizing your images. You'll still want to do all you can to ensure the best initial image in the camera. But with the skills you'll learn in this course, you'll be able to resolve the issues you either didn't notice at the time the image was captured, or couldn't really do anything about. The result will be an improved eye for detail in your images, and a photograph's of a much better quality.

Enjoy.
