In this video, you’ll get a step-by-step guide to every Photoshop technique used in this eye-catching portrait

If you like retouching, you know there’s only one rule you go by: keep it light. No surprise there. Nobody wants to do portrait retouch to an extent that it ends up looking lifeless and fake. So the question becomes: How much Photoshop is too much?

BUT . . . honestly, wouldn’t it be cool if could stop worrying about that? If you could just apply retouch after retouch without thinking if you’ve gone too far? Be able to play around with your creative impulses because you’ve seen a professional do it before?

That’s the freedom video courses like Manni’s from Retutpro offer. And that’s why I’m always excited to bring them to you. They’re exhaustive, detail-filled, info-rich, and comprehensive (yes, I really like Manni!). And with them, you’ll be able to straddle that line between creativity and going too far.

In this video, “Foxy Hipster,” you’ll get instruction on high-end beauty portrait retouch. Divided into 12 lessons, the 2.5 hours of the video cover everything from how he set up his lights to the final, pinpoint edits he used for both the background color and his subject’s skin tone.

After watching it, you’ll get the confidence to do portrait retouch with the most advanced tools in Photoshop, knowing you’ve seen Manni do it all before. And gain an in-depth understanding of what it takes to create world-class retouching enhancements.

Planning & Photography Settings

Light Setup & Diagram

You’ll learn why Manni went with four lights and poly boards and understand what each light brought to the table.

Preparations & Raw Conversions

In this lesson, you’ll learn how the portrait was first adjusted in Camera Raw Processing and then imported into Photoshop. In this stage, you’ll see why adjusting contrast, exposure, and sharpness before you even start the portrait retouch. This will help you in the long run!

Help Layers & Notes

A help layer is like an agenda. It helps you stay focused on what you wanted to change. With it, you’ll be able to go back to all the little adjustments you first noticed so that you never forget your first gut reaction.

Comprehensive Hair Retouching

Hair is the first big challenge. Using adjustment layers like Curves, you’ll work on selective areas to fill in color and kept an even exposure all over, while taking out any large, stray hairs.

Basic Portrait Retouch & Cleaning

Before anything really challenging, you first got to clean up your image. Get rid any dust spots, unmistakable eyesores, and anything you can do fast. In this lesson, you’ll use tools like healing, cloning and refining.

Liquefying & Image Adjustments

The liquefying tool is powerful and can be overdone but it’s so helpful. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use the Liquify Tool help refine an image. The idea is not to create a different person. You’ll create changes that are subtle and done with artistic integrity.

Skin is the second big challenge and one of the most important. In this lesson, you’ll apply techniques to ensure smooth silky skin. You’ll learn tools like the High Pass Filter and the Gaussian Blur to get clear, beautiful skin.
