Part II:: Practical Retouching > Retouching Portraits

Chapter 7. Retouching Portraits

Retouching posed photos of human beings is one of the most challenging of retouching tasks. No other photo manipulation process is so prone to errors, and so likely to be met with criticism. You’ll be struggling not only with reality (how your subject really looks to the camera), but also perceived reality (what the viewer thinks the subject looks like) and idealized reality (what the viewer would like the portrait subject to look like). If you can retouch portraits well within Photoshop, you’re ready for the big-time.

This chapter tackles some of the most common portrait retouching situations, and shows how to handle them effectively and quickly, while matching, as well as possible, each of the three kinds of reality that are likely to be imposed on your work.
