The Phorbes Cover Shoot – Post Processing

We take one of the images from of our corporate/editorial photo shoot into Photoshop to start the Retouching. The retouching is being split into 3 parts, be sure to check back to see the entire Retouching process.

To start the Retouching, we:

  • Clone Stamp – Clone stamping out minor blemishes works well, especially when you don’t want the blending of a Healing Brush.
  • Pen Tool – In this episode we use the Pen Tool to make a selection used to line Asa’s Hair.
  • Custom Brush – We create a custom Brush to Retouch Skin while giving it Texture.
