Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Final refinement, part of Photoshop Retouching: Faces.
…So we're just about ready to print.…And before we print, there's just a few…things you're going to want to do to make sure…that you're not going to have to keep making…prints over and over til you get it right.…And just a couple things you can do is, just zoom in.…And just check the edges for any mask lines that may have…popped out due to the color moves that we made on the skin.…Or if you had opened up any areas for detail.…So just a quick…cursory bounce like this can help you to minimize…the amount of prints that you have to make.…
Another thing you'd like to do now, is just break your focus a little bit.…You know?…You've been staring at this image for a few hour now, and Even the best of…us are going to leave in elements or…missed spots that you would normally take out.…And a good way to break your focus is just to zoom all the way out like this,…and stand up. Walk around.…Go get another cup of coffee.…Stretch a little bit.…Just focus on anything other than a photograph for a minute.…It's good to just get up now and again, and to get your eyes off the screen.…
