Two week ago I was writing about an adobe photoshop tutorial video on how to achieve Andrzej Dragan portrait look.
Today I found an adobe photoshop tutorial, with a psd file to illustrate it, about a different a different approach to accomplish this look.
There is a tremendous amount of adobe photoshop actions out there to give the velvia saturation, these photoshop actions are great for landscape pictures and for pictures that do not contain people.
However, when the picture involves people in it, boosting the saturation becomes much more tricky because of the skin tones.
I read it, couldn’t believe it. Read it again… No it must be a joke, then I read all the replies, people that actually tried it and it worked for them also. But can it be true? I pulled myself out of the bed did the test and WoW it really works…
This adobe photoshop tutorial will teach us how to post process our picture to create a perceived dynamic range increase.
From here on all that is written is just a copy/paste from PhotoKan’s tutorial
This is great adobe photoshop tutorial I found on RetouchPro that shows how to get a smoother skin for portrait retouching but without, however, loosing all the skin texture.
The tutorial can be found here
