Jon, this is one of the most useful tutorials I have ever seen. Thanks for spending the time to write it.

This is an extremely generous donation of time and effort. Well done Jon!

I've gotta try some of that stuff. That is one heck of a finished product from that original.

You really spent a lot of time putting this together. I've never used a healing brush, so maybe I'll try it later. Thanks for the effort.
Could I suggest maybe putting clickable smaller versions of the pictures within the tutorial. They would have loaded by the time I got to the point of needing to see them. That way they will always be there if you change the other ones at the other site. Just a suggestion.

Thanks PC

I didn't make the tutorial it was done by Langdon or Drew (I think). I merely sent them the words and pictures.

There is a PDF to download though.

Thank you for the outstanding tutorial. I had recently taken some photographs and the customer was very please with the touch ups. She even ordered extra prints.

WOW, that is great, and it's going to help me A LOT! Thanks for your time, I hope you know how much we all appreciate tutorials like this.

Very timely, Jon. For Christmas my husband got me a lighting set and made me a backdrop! Now everyone in the family wants portraits. This is very timely as I've already spent some time trying to touch-up the first attempts and haven't been pleased with the results. I'm especially having problems when two people are in the photo and they have very different skin tones! Can't wait to pull the photos back up and try this. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :)

are these edits legal in Advanced Editing? (just curious)

I'd already rated this one. Clear and lucid presentation, the effort is much appreciated.

This is just outstanding. I wish to thank you for this tutorial. This is one of those simple things which make a huge difference. Also a word to your model which, IMHO, is simply Beautiful with a capital B and, after the touch-up, is indeed magazine cover material. Again Thank you!!!

Thank you for the outstanding tutorial. this is one of the most useful tutorials I have ever seen. You should try to explain other big and important themes.

That is incredible! What would really help me though, is lesson on layering. What's it do and why should I use it?
02/02/2005 05:27:13 PM · #15

Holy cripe! Great advice, and mylordy what a difference between original and final...really, WOW.

Excellent content but I'd MUCH rather have the images integrated within the tutorial text rather than having to open and view in a separate window each time.
02/11/2005 09:27:33 PM · #17
Great tutorial... I learned a lot. Now I feel more confident using layers and can practice without panicking.

Very good tutorial helped me very much....

My 1st try at it:

Before:' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/23653/thumb/161632.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/23653/thumb/161632.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' After:' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/23653/thumb/161631.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/23653/thumb/161631.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Dear Jon,
The tutorial 'Touching up your Portraits' touched my heart. I attribute 50% of my learning (Photoshop) to you!
05/13/2005 04:19:44 PM · #20
Great tutorial. However, Jon, you may want to do a little fixing up on the model's left ear? It's looking a little strange to me. Perhaps bring back some of the shadow in the ridges.....

jon thanks for the tutorial,,really helped a lot!!!
12/02/2005 08:38:31 PM · #22
Wonderful tutorial; thank you very much for posting it. I have been using the techniques with very good results!

What the hell happened to this tutorial?

I get "INVALID TUTORIAL ID" on the link - has this been taken down?

I just read the other link - darn, all because of a model release...
