  • Most of the educational retouching programs (DVDs and eBooks) that are out there these days were created by professional retouchers. I have watched many such DVDs that try to beat each other in the amount of hours of retouching they offer, and I fell asleep every time… just kidding, I didn’t. But honestly, although they are pretty expensive, I don’t think I’ve ever watched one of those programs from start to finish. Simply because I am a busy professional and I want specific knowledge and skills, I don’t have a spare dozen of hours to watch a retouching DVD, trying to fish out a couple of things that I don’t already know.
  • Professional retouchers are paid for each of those 10-50 hours they spend on an image. If that’s what you want to do, than you definitely need one of (or all) those DVDs, because that’s what they teach. Hours and hours of retouching on 200-300% zoom. No doubt, they are masters of what they do, but they are pro retouchers. I am a pro photographer and retoucher, I work super fast, but I can still be proud of the images I deliver: www.juliakuzmenko.com. I create those photos from start to finish, and I can tell you all about how to get to where I am at with my photography and retouching today, just follow my lead.

 

  • If you are a working photographer like me, than most likely you want to learn how to deliver excellent results very quick. There are always other important things for a pro photographer to get done such as promoting him- or herself to get more work, or actually making money shooting. More often than not, we professional photographers have retouching fees included into our photography service charges, so the quicker we get the images edited and submit to our clients, the better for us and our business’s bottom line it is. No way I could afford to spend 30 hours retouching one image. I bet, you are the same way and that’s why you are here now.
  • I wanted to create an educational retouching program that is right on and brings to your attention ONLY what is essential to learn to be able to turn Beauty, Fashion, & Portrait images into works of art in post-production. And that is why the name of this eBook is “Creative Retouching Essentials In A Day”. It is well-structured and short enough (about 30 pages in total + a few short videos in the chapters that require visual demonstration) to allow you to absorb and digest everything you need to know before you move on to the advanced retouching for Beauty, Fashion & Portrait photography within one day.

 

 

  • You don’t know what you don’t know. Even if you have been working in Photoshop for a couple of years you may still be lacking some knowledge that might lead you to that break through in your retouching..
    .

    From my teaching experience I know that a lot of photographers say: “Oh, I know all the essentials – I’ve been doing it for 2-3 years!” And when we get down to the advanced part of the course, I realize that they don’t know what Layer Masks are, never used the Free Transform tool or some of the Blending Modes, have no idea how to set target color in the Curves Adjustment layer or never heard of other essential things like that. After reading this eBook and watching the video tutorials in it you will have a clear understanding as to what tools you need to be familiar with, and what you should practice before you begin to learn Advanced retouching techniques. Essentials are super important, and any professional retoucher will tell you that.

According to a discussion thread on the Apple website: You cannot open zipped files on the iPad, if you don’t have a decompression app for iPad installed.

You can try using free iUnarchive Lite for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad , but please remember it is not our application and you need to contact its author if you have any questions about it or issues with its performance. We are just trying to help you save time on researching this matter.

Also, please remember that the Actions, Brushes and Gradients in the Bonus Goodie Bags of respective eBooks are a very valuable addition to the eBooks and you can only use them in Adobe Photoshop on your computer, so you need to download the ZIP file onto your computer anyway.
