Hosted by Jane Conner-Ziser, this tutorial extends well beyond a simple set of tools and includes topics on how to recompose imagery, how to work with masks, layers, and selections, and how to improve the quality of facial features among a wide variety of subject types. In addition to the video lessons offered on this DVD-ROM, all of the lesson files are also included to help you in honing your newly gained retouching skills.

Many of the lessons are also complemented by included lesson files to help you follow along. Additionally, the video files can also be imported into iTunes for viewing on an iPad, iPhone 4 or later, or via an Apple TV.


An introduction from the host, Jane Conner-Ziser, offers a brief overview slideshow of what is to come throughout the 13-hour-long tutorial on retouching.
Tips and Tools
Focusing on using a Wacom tablet for the editing process, this introductory segment gives some useful hints on how to setup and configure your tablet and pen for retouching.
Face Basics
In specific regard to facial retouching, this lesson shows you how to setup and control every tool and process available in Photoshop for retouching skin. It offers suggestions on which tools are best for specific processes, such as how to filter out excessive texture while keeping the pores intact, and also how to combine techniques for greater efficiency.
Adult Woman
With an emphasis on maintaining a realistic looks, this section covers how to successfully retouch adult women and where to begin in order to gain successful results. Specific tops covered include how to make clothing corrections, posture work, eye brightening, and enhancement techniques to bring out more from a mature face.
Adult Man
This time focusing on an adult male, this lesson covers how to adjust posture and lighten facial components, while also touching on working with background distractions. More specifically, this section delves into working on enhancing eye colors and reducing color casts in beards.
Moving on to group photos, this section begins with how to extend a background as well as how to naturally slim grandma and grandma for truly flattering results. Additional techniques include removing light shine from a bald head, enhancing facial components, retouching wrinkles, and repairing eyes that have poorly positioned catchlights.
Removing Braces
This lesson is solely dedicated to removing braces from teeth in a fast and efficient manner.
Teeth and Rosacea
This segment focuses on retouching the skin and teeth of models with rosacea by neutralizing skin tones and minimizing and unwanted discolorations. Additionally, this section also covers working with crooked and receded teeth, and how to re-contour their shapes and lighten them for a more flattering appearance.
Offering instruction on retouching especially difficult skin types, this segment covers working with acne and other discolorations, and how to combine a variety of retouching techniques to faithfully clear the skin without losing highlight detail. Additional topics include removing shine, re-contouring the lighting, and creating healthy looking skin.
Hair and Eyes
Moving to other areas of the head, this lesson provides an overview on how to remove stray hairs, fill in hair, and open and close eyes that are off balance in a portrait. Additionally, this segment ties in with some of the previous skin retouching and light shaping tutorials.
Head Swaps
This segment introduces three different techniques for swapping heads, along with reasoning behind when and how each technique can be effectively be used. Complementing the techniques are lessons on how to auto align layers, work with layer masks, and simple cutting and pasting of heads to minimize retouching time.
Removing the Glare From Glasses
Again offering three unique techniques, this lesson focuses on how to remove glare from glasses. Designed for different overall applications, these techniques include how to replace the eyes from another image, how to make skin patches, and how to fill in the glare from scratch using a variety of tools and techniques.
Body, Background, and Eyes
Using a photograph from a wedding, this lesson demonstrates how to adjust the overall color of a photograph, re-posture subjects, re-shape hair, retouch faces, and correct the eyes that may look a little off balance. Once mastered, additional speed techniques are taught to help when editing a bulk of images.
Pen Tool and Masks
Showcasing how to take people out of one image and place them in another, this segment covers using the pen tool to make precise selections and refine masks for varying edge detail and degrees of feathering. Additionally, specific attention is paid to de-fringing edge colors for more natural composite results.
Drop-In Sky
Focusing on replacing the sky within an image rather than the main subject, this tutorial offers a quick way for changing a bland sky in order to develop greater detail and colors to accentuate your subjects. Layers, layer masks, and blending options are applied as well as working with unlinked layer masks for more personalized compositions that are void of any auto-select errors.
Image Recomposition
Using the Content Aware Move, Content Aware Fill, and Puppet Warp tools, this segment utilizes a fashion photograph to help you learn how to re-compose an image. Additionally, tips are given on cloning background defects and edge details, as well as how to paint in hair, enhance color, and add motion to static subjects.
Using NIK and Graphic Authority applications to complement the Photoshop workflow, this session teaches you how to paint with light and add mood to your imagery. Additional information is given on making your own filter recipes and applying them using layer masks and blending modes; how to work with templates; and how to convert imagery to black and white, among other creative effects.
How to Fix Mistakes
Wrapping up the extensive series of retouching tutorials, the last lesson covers how to fix any mistakes you may have made along the way-without having to start all over from the beginning.
