Part VIII. Retouching and Restoration

Retouching and Restoration

Although taking the perfect photo is a great goal, it's one that is often just beyond our reach. Not to worry though, if you're a Photoshop owner. In this book, you find out what you need to know about correcting color in all its permutations — contrast, saturation, replacing, remapping, and so on. You find details on using the focus and toning tools to manually adjust the tones, textures, and colors in your images. I also give you details on how you can give your images a digital spa day with the two Healing Brushes and the Patch and Red Eye tools. You learn how to remove blemishes, wrinkles, and every other one of nature's imperfections. After you master these techniques, you'll be on your way to doing your own digital extreme makeovers. But whatever you do, don't leave this book without checking out the Vanishing Point feature. This single command alone may be well worth the money you plunked down for Photoshop.
