Professional Portrait Retouching Techniques for Photographers Using Photoshop by Scott Kelby

Dear Reader:

Welcome to the download page, where you can download the same photos we used in the book to follow right along with the techniques. Like I mentioned in the book, I’ve also included a second practice image, so you can try the techniques you learned on totally different images. You’ll also find the video I created for you on how to use the Pen tool (mentioned in Chapter 1), my eyelash brush set (from Chapter 2), and the Checklist panel that you can upload into Photoshop (this panel contains everything in the Checklist in Chapter 7).

Well, that’s pretty much it. I hope you enjoy following along with these images, and thanks so much for buying the book, and giving me the opportunity to show you some really cool retouching techniques.

Just a quick reminder: These downloadable photos, from myself and iStockphoto (www.istockphoto.com), made available to you here, are licensed for your personal use only in practicing the techniques shown in the book. They are not licensed for use in any other manner, including commercial projects, websites, or any other use. Thanks for honoring our copyrights.
