- [Voiceover] Hi and thanks for joining yours truly, Derrick Story, while we explore Portrait Retouching with Aperture. The image editing tools in Aperture are far more powerful than many realize. When working on portraits, you have a professional set of adjustment tools at your fingertips that allow you to get the most out of each image. A few of the techniques we'll look at include enhancing and softening skin textures, adjusting clothing color for just the right look, changing backdrop hue and intensity to perfectly match the subject, highlighting hair color, brightening teeth.
We'll also explore black and white portraiture, color monochromes, and using plug-ins to expand our creativity during post-production. So take your portraits to the next level by joining me for Portrait Retouching with Aperture.
