If you’re reading this, then you’re most likely an amateur photographer who is serious about taking the steps to educate yourself on photo editing. Maybe you’re making the gradual move to becoming a pro, or maybe you simply want to be able to take your photos from good to great. In this tutorial, I’ll show you a few simple ways to retouch images, remove objects, and repair imperfections. These methods will work on portraits of faces just as well as they will on interiors or landscapes. I’m using Photoshop CS6, but the newer CC and even some older versions will have many of the same features and functions.
In part one of this series, we discussed various ways to tweak your images in Lightroom, to help make them appear sharper. I warned against over-sharpening, mentioned the importance of shooting RAW files instead of JPEGs, and what causes unsharp images.
