Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Body sculpting, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie, we will be working on the file tremaine_photography_yoga.psd.…This image comes to us by way of one of my students Alexandria Tremaine; check out her work at tremainephotography.com.…Thanks for the use of this file, let's open it up, I've to go to Full Screen View mode and then zoom in a little bit.…Here we have this nice yoga shot.…But what I want to do with this image is I want to enhance it, I want to sculpt the body,…and then make some improvements to the shape of the body.…So first things first, let's copy our background layer by pressing Command+J on a Mac,…Ctrl+J on a PC and name the new layer Retouching.…
Next, we are going to navigate to our Filter drop-down menu and choose good old Liquify.…Now, I'm going to Zoom In a little bit.…On the Mac I can press Command+, on a PC, that is Ctrl+, now Spacebar to reposition the image.…Works the same way as it does inside a Photoshop.…What I want to do is I want to work on the shape of the arms;…I want to work on the shape of the waist a little bit and then the legs.…
