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.

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.
