Project Description

1. Select a portrait you've taken

2. Using Lightroom, smooth out skin and spot heal flaws like lines, scars and pimples.  Correct the color.

3. Open your edited image in Photoshop to do more detailed healing and cloning.  Look for sensor dust with the curves adjustment layer.

4. Save your work and in Lightroom export your finalized image as a 72ppi jpg 14 inches the long way.  Post to the Skillshare project page and let us know your thoughts on the retouching process!
