Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic cleanup, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
In this movie, we will be working on the file RBerman.com.…This image comes to us by way of one of my former students, Berman.…The guy is really cool.…He is a very talented, very motivated fashion photographer based in Los Angeles and New York.…Berman, thanks a ton for the use of this file.…What we are going to do in this project is look at how we can improve this image,…how we can retouch it and apply some creative color effects.…So let's go ahead and open up this file and begin our Basic Retouching.…Another thing I should say that we are going to do here is we are going to work on how we can retouch this image without stacking…up our layers, without creating a huge amount of layers.…
So we are going to try to keep our layer count to a minimum.…What that will mean is we will create layers and then flatten them down.…So we are going to do this back-and-forth thing with our layer work.…Alright, so let's go ahead and rename our background layer.…Double-click on that and let's rename this one Original.…Next, let's copy that Command+J and we will call this R1 for Retouch 1.…
