Présentation de l'éditeur
From the perfect glossy pages of a magazine to the larger-than-life images floating on a billboard in the sky, image retouching has become a key component of today's digital photography world. So popular, in fact, that the sheer act of retouching has become its own verb as we often ask ourselves, "I wonder if this image was Photoshopped?" Sometimes controversial but widely accepted, and even expected, excellent retouching skills are crucial to finding success in the field of digital imaging. As you work through the clear step-by-step instructions in the book using the images provided on the bonus CD, you'll learn how to do real retouching jobs from start to finish, including each and every technical step along the way. You'll also get behind the scenes advice for talking to clients and establishing a workflow to ensure that your client gets the results they are looking for. If you're a student or aspiring professional just starting out in the world of retouching, the information found in this book can help you find work in the advertising/retouching industry. If you're already a working photographer, you'll be able to add retouching to your repertoire as an additional offering to your clients. Carrie Beene is a professional retoucher and educator who has worked with some of the world's most prestigious companies, including Revlon, MAC, and L'Oreal, and has contributed imagery to such renowned publications as the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and Vanity Fair. In this excellent new book, she'll share the techniques she has learned and developed over the years to help you navigate the often mysterious world of image retouching.

-While this book contains some good tips, I don't think it is detailed enough in how to accomplish certain specific tasks. Sometimes she details each step, but there are also times when I am totally lost on how she wants something to be done. I have figured out my own way to accomplish what she wants, but I wish she would outline exactly how she does things so I (the reader) could learn a potential new way of doing something. There are times when she rushes through the steps.
-The photo representations of the exercises in this book are terrible. The photos are so small that details can hardly be seen. Photos of details in color changes or sharpness, for example, are absolutely useless. Check out the book "Professional Photoshop - The Classic Guide to Color Correction" if you want to see the difference. The pictures are large and you can see the difference between comparison photos.
This isn't the worst book out there on retouching, but I'm sure there are better ones out there. I do appreciate that she takes us through a real retouching job's workflow, but it's the lack of details she leaves out that is disappointing. Maybe Ms. Beene assumes that the general reader should know how to to do certain things (like make the corner of an eye white), which I do, but I bought this book because I want to know how SHE does it. This book could have been great if she would have spent more time, and been more thorough, with it.
I don't think I would recommend this to anyone else.
As far as I'm concerned, this is a great book with a serious insight on how the professional retouchers do it. Be warned that you may not be able to replicate everything, even though it's explained in detail how it was done.
If you'd like to start to know retouching, or you just need to have some retouching skills on your belt, without going all out, you should try the Scott Kelby books and then, once you've mastered that, go into this one.
I would like to have seen a step-by-step process for a man too but perhaps that's content for a 2nd book.
This book is truly a blessing for photographers who need to improve their retouching abilities to compete. I rate this book a 10 out of 10 and strongly recommend you add this book to your photography / art library.
