PRESERVE SKIN TEXTURE
Preserve & Recreate Natural Details
It’s one thing to remove something from in front of a background or landscape, it’s another thing entirely to remove something from a subject’s skin. While we cover advanced retouching and blemish removal in other PRO courses like How to Master Frequency Separation Retouching, we take some time in this course to show you how to remove complex elements from a subject’s skin while preserving all of the natural texture and details.
Advanced Brush Techniques
Sometimes object removal is quick and easy, perfect for tools like Content-Aware Fill or the Spot Healing Brush. But for those tricky jobs with complex backgrounds, you need a more manual touch. Learn advanced techniques for the Brush Tool to literally paint in background elements and detail for an unbelievable final result.
No matter what sort of photos you work with, object removal is a key skill for any editor. Need to remove studio lights and equipment from a studio shoot? No problem. Small blemishes or distractions from a subject’s skin? We’ve got you covered. Entire groups of people from an urban landscape? You’ll be able to do all this and more!
Advanced Photoshop Skills
REMOVE PEOPLE FROM PHOTOS
Whether you just want to clean up some family photos, or you need a subject or product to stand out for a client, we show you how to achieve seamless, professional results in your images.
The most important part of a professional workflow is making sure you can get back to your original, unedited photos at any time. We show you how to use Layers, Groups, Layer Masks, Smart Objects, and more to make sure you can undo or change your work at any time.
We show you how to use every object removal tool and technique out there, giving you complete control over your photos. If you, or your clients, don’t want something to be in frame, you’ll be able to hide it so that only the most important elements of a photo take center stage.
REMOVE GROUPS OF PEOPLE
Skills for Any Photographer
These skills are universal for any photographer. Whether you capture products, weddings, headshots, fashion, or landscapes, you’ll be able to identify and remove any distractions using the power of Photoshop and your editing savvy.
It’s pretty common and pretty easy to remove small distractions in front of relatively simple backgrounds. But what about when you have a background full of complex details like buildings, trees, signs, and other small details?
Sample PSDs Included
We don’t just provide the sample images for you to follow along with, we also set you up with the completed PSD files so you can reverse-engineer the process and experiment with the effects.
