Chapter 8. Repairing and Retouching Images

<feature><title>Lesson Overview</title>

Sometimes you may need to deal with image flaws other than color or exposure problems. You may have an antique photograph that is damaged or a scanned image with dust and scratches. Your photo may be tilted or spoilt by red eye effect or spots and blemishes on a person’s skin.

In this lesson, you’ll learn some techniques for repairing and retouching flawed images:

  • Using the Straighten tool

  • Removing red eyes in the Organizer

  • Retouching skin with the Healing Brush tool

  • Repairing creases with the Clone Stamp tool

  • Using the Selection Brush tool

  • Masking parts of an image

You’ll probably need between one and two hours to complete this lesson.
