Perfect Portrait Retouch With The Lightroom Spot Removal Tool


I think it’s the use of opacity that makes the retouch believable

Obviously Photoshop itself is the powerhouse when it comes to retouching. Whenever I retouch in Photoshop I always adjust the opacity of the layers I am using for both blemishes and wrinkle. If you remove everything and don’t adjust opacity your image will come out looking over cooked.


Unfortunately the next release of Lightroom will require a 64-bit computer. When I am working with a large batch of images and I need to go back-and-forth between Photoshop and Lightroom I usually export to a folder outside of light room and then import into Photoshop. Lightroom is a memory hog. Most likely because it is such a powerful program. I am in a place where I couldn’t do my job without it.
