What You'll Be Creating

When you want to achieve extra visual impact in one of your images, selective masking in Adobe Photoshop can be a great trick to have up your sleeve.

In this short video tutorial from my course on Beauty and Glamour Portrait Retouching, you'll learn how to give your image more visual impact by masking out some of the color cast. This will give you greater control over what you want—and don't want—the color cast to affect in your image. Watch the video below to see how it's done.

In the full course, Beauty and Glamour Portrait Retouching, you will learn how to use strategic beauty retouching techniques in Adobe Photoshop to take a glamour photo from good to great. 

This course is for beauty and glamour portrait photographers who are already familiar with using Photoshop for basic portrait retouching and want to take their retouching skills to the next level. By the end of the course, you will have much greater confidence in your own retouching skills within Photoshop, as well as a greater understanding of how to plan an efficient and professional retouching workflow.

If you still need extra help, have a look at the professional photo editing services on Envato Studio. For example, johnsoko can provide professional retouching of an image within two days for just $30.
