"Tutorial: Retouch" by Nikicorny

It is a nicely written tutorial that is quick and easy to follow. Step by step pictorial instructions are used as a way to help guide a reader to learn how to retouch a figure photo(or any photo) and just not do it for you.

Important things are nicely highlighted and results are easily measurable.

Now I gave a low "Originality" score because this technique isn't new. Personally I wish i could just avoid it because its unfair for a tutorial. This is a learning experience and Nikicorny teaches what she knows well.

Well done Nikicorny

Thanks a lot! I used your tutorial to make my first Photoshop project. [link]

I know Photoshop can do amazing things, but I was overwhelmed at where to start. I REALLY appreciate it!

Thank you so much for this! All your tutorials are fantastic; I just read through all of them. I just tried this process with one of my older pokemon pictures, and it turned out pretty well. I will be using this again in the future. ^^

oh wow, they didn't teach me this right in college! (I'm going to a school for fine arts >___> nothing special actually)
Now I understand it because the teachers just couldn't explain these things to me step by step, for them it's just automatic work...
