Cleaning Up the Details – Professional Portrait Retouch Series – Part VIII
Welcome to Part VIII of the Professional Photoshop Retouching Series on SLR Lounge.
In this Photoshop tutorial we are going to be working on cleaning up the remaining hair and line detail in the image.
This tutorial is not for the faint of heart. We are going to be using every retouch technique we have learned so far, along with some new ones to fully clean up this image. That is why we saved this video as the final retouch video in the series.
Now, we don’t waste any time in this video, but the video does clock in at nearly 25 minutes to teach all of the techniques while working through the image. But, I can assure you will be much better at retouch after watching, so stick through it!
Now, if you haven’t watched the previous parts to the PPR Series, then please catch up by watching the prior videos below:
