    After seeing some of the fantastic retouching that be done with Photoshop, I got on YouTube and started researching. I made a post on my blog to show some of the better photo retouching and enhancement videos that should really help newbies and veterans alike. The videos include topics such as:
    • Using levels adjustments to set the tonal range of your picture and make the colors pop
    • Altering the color balance (a.k.a. white balance) to make the photo warmer or cooler
    • Employing the liquify filter to slim the subjectÂ’s waist and alter other body features
    • Changing the saturation to make the colors look more vivid while keeping skin tones in tact
    • Burning and dodging to put the viewerÂ’s focus on the subject of the image
    • Enlarge breasts with the liquify filter
    Here is the link to the article: http://www.metavophoto.com/blog/quick-photoshop-postprocessing-video-tutorials/. I decided to just link to my post instead of embedding all the tutorials into this post. Hope this helps you out! I sure learned a ton. Please let me know if you think something should be added, and a little Digg love is always appreciated!

    Also, feel free to check out a post I made about burning and dodging in Photoshop.
