Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting the shape of clothing to fit a model, part of Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Fashion Editorial.
Okay, so now we can do a bit of tailoring to fit this blouse a bit better on her.…Her skirt is very tight and she has very narrow hips, so there is nothing that needs to be done there.…But I just see this little piece right here, and this billow right there that I'd like to correct.…So, we're going to zoom on in over here, and what I have done before is I went through…the rest of the shoot, the rest of the drive from the photographer, and I've found a piece…that we can actually comp in right there as opposed to rebuilding the arm.…
I think it's very important for you to recognize when you should do this and when you should…actually try to rebuild it.…Anything can be done with retouching, and you can flip this on over and put it on there…and paint it out and be very happy with yourself, and you know what a great retoucher you are.…But at the end of the day, you need to do what looks right, and for me what's going to…look right is finding a piece from the shoot and actually comping as much in as possible…
