Skin Retouching in Photoshop

The workshop is hosted by Deji of http://www.dejivisuals.com/

In this workshop I will demonstrate the workflow I use when doing skin retouching in Photoshop. I will show 2 techniques.

  1. Using some blur and then adding back in detail with the highpass filter.
  2. Working with clone tool at the pixel level.

I will also highlight some of the basic retouching I do to all my work, sharping features and whitening eyes and teeth.

Feel free to bring your laptop and follow along with your own collection at the same time. It will be a relaxed, informal event. We'll make sure to reserve some time at the end for people to ask questions, give their own Photoshop tips, and basically hang out and experiment/discuss.

If you don't have Photoshop, you can download a free trial from Adobe's website http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

    Thanks for the workshop Deji. It was really informative and made me appreciate how much work really goes into "flawless skin". :)

    Just as an FYI - in this workshop Deji will be using Photoshop CS6, which is not the same as Photoshop Lightroom. I think it's rather confusing that these products have such similar names.

    Especially as there are now people on the waiting list I just wanted to highlight that you would get most out of the workshop if you have at least basic familiarity with Photoshop. If you haven't used PS before then have a definitely download and have a little play before the workshop tomorrow.
    Looking forward to seeing you all.

    Hey guys, this isn't necessarily the right place to ask this but as I don't have anywhere else to ask the question. Can any of you recommend a good printer in Shanghai? I'd like to get a print of some photos for friends birthday next week. Many thanks

      Did you finally find somewhere. I normally to building B of the big camera market on corner of Xietu Lu, Luban Lu. I've used two of the printers on the ground floor and have had great prints.

    I only have Lightroom... Is the presentation only focusing on Adobe Photoshop? Can the features in Photoshop be done using Lightroom during the presentation?

    April 7, 2013

    • deji

      Yes the workshop is focused on using Photoshop to do skin retouching.
