- Hello, I'm Tim Grey. One of the things I tend to focus on in my photography is avoiding distractions within the frame. In large part that involves looking a little more closely at the subject through the viewfinder, and finding ways to ensure that everything in the frame adds to the overall photographic composition without creating distractions. Of course, sometimes those distractions can't be avoided and sometimes you don't notice them because you're so excited about the subject in front of the lens. Whatever the reason, you're going to find situations where you want to remove distractions or blemishes from your photos, and in this course I'll help you master image cleanup.
I'll start by reviewing some of the overall concepts related to image cleanup. And then we'll explore all of the tools you'll typically use for cleaning up your images in Photoshop. We'll then take an in-depth look at some of the cleanup techniques I recommend to help you work more efficiently and produce results of the highest quality. I'll then guide you through some more advanced methods that will help you cleanup images even with challenging blemishes. Along the way you'll see many examples of the challenges you'll likely face with your own photographic images. But more importantly you'll see real world solutions.
So let's take a look at some of my favorite tools and techniques for cleaning up blemishes in your digital photos.
