My Story

When I  began to seriously learn PS Retouching, I looked everywhere on the web for the good tutorials and tips to solve all the problems or carry out my inspirations.

And then, you have to settle all the details on your own when you start to face a retouching project. I often go to for tons of free tutorials. And also look for Free PS Tutorial Collections to learn strategically and systematically.Here's a great webpage for you to visit.

Remember, you can never turn a low resolution portrait into a star poster. The original pic should be good enough for you to retouch. So you need find a good quality pic to do the PS work, or it's just a waste of your time.

I know many good photographers. Some of them think it crucial to take a good shot with property parameters on the camera setup. If there's anything wrong, like too bright or too dark, the pic turns into a waste. Actually, that's just what Photoshop do. PS can fix almost everything if the pic quality itself is good thou. What PS needs is detail, nothing else.
