This last unit will focus on retouching portraits. We’ve talked about the dangers of retouching, and I think most of us agreed that it wasn’t necessarily a good thing, but it is important to know how. Please work through the tutorials and practice on the sample files and portraits that you’ve taken. You will have to complete a major assignment using these tools soon, so make sure you know what you’re doing.

For now, use a photo you’ve taken or a photo of me (available here). Believe me, there’s plenty to fix on a photo of me and I will not be offended. On one photo, demonstrate areas where you might use each technique listed below. You’ll have to show me a before and after, and most importantly, briefly explain how and where you used each tool.
