|Hank's Photoshop Retouching Tips and Tricks
Do not paint on the original layer. Save it as your base layer.
Create new layers for retouching efforts, create a group for many layers if necessary.
Use the selection and feathering tools to isolate elements.
Name your layers or groups to stay organized.
Use the cloning tool brush, to grab the grain and nuance from the original image.
Take advantage of the "Lighten" and "Darken" brush settings.
- Use large, soft brushes when erasing, lightening, shading.
- Be prepared to use Undo or History for multiple undoing.
- Use the Pen Tool when you need to create exact paths and selections.
- Of course... use a pressure sensitive painting tablet , such as the Wacom.
