Aaron Nace shows us his techniques and tricks for in-depth skin retouching. In this tutorial, the differences between several different retouching techniques are discussed and demonstrated in detail. You run through everything from basic healing tools, layering, workflow, and detail work with the pen tool. The overall techniques result in a highly refined image that appears both natural and appealing. The 1 and half hour tutorial is designed for individuals that have a beginning knowledge of Photoshop, yet remains relevant for more advanced photoshop artists as well.

In this tutorial Aaron Nace takes us on a journey through cutting out our subject, replacing the background, matching the subject to the background, playing with blur to highlight the focus on an image, and adding magazine style text to the shot. It’s quite a bit of information, but it was so fun to learn.

In this Phlearn PRO tutorial, The Perfect Composite, I learned several new techniques for more effectively scaling the subject, matching lighting and perspective, and creating edge glow.
