Subtle Retouching Done Digtally

There are many examples on the web of bad Photoshop®. People who look too good to be true; people who don't have a wrinkle on their face. We all know that everyone has some wrinkles or imperfections, so my posts for the next few days will show how very subtle retouching (I call it digital plastic surgery) can make a photo look much better. To the left is an example of too much airbrushing.

No wrinkles at ALL??? Overkill.

Take a look at the photo at the left. The lines on this man's cheeks were caused by glasses with a heavy prescription. I did some minor retouching to create the photo below it, which is now minus the lines. My cost to do this? Only $20.00. All the work I do is based on an hourly fee, so your job might not cost $20.00. If you e-mail your scanned photo to jgreller (at) gmail (dot) com, I will give you an idea what the cost would be. Please make sure that your image is scanned at 600 dpi in TIFF format. Tomorrow: correction for large ears.
