Beauty Retouch Panel Buttons Overview

BUTTONS & SCRIPTS OVERVIEW

TOP OF THE PANEL

We provided an easy access to the Liquify filter and our Sharpening script right at the top of the panel.

 

SKIN RETOUCHING

The key skin retouching techniques in beauty photography — Dodge & Burn and Frequency Separation — take time to master, but this section of the panel can help you set up the necessary layers in a click of a button, so you can focus on the actual technique and not waste your time on its setup. Developing a solid understanding of how these techniques work is the first step toward mastering them. Check out some helpful video tutorials on our website. Our Master Dodge & Burn video course is also a great help for those who are still learning the technique.

 

FACE, MAKEUP & HAIR RETOUCHING

After the skin is cleaned up, it’s time to beautify the rest of the face. You can accomplish this by: adding vitality to the eyes, brightening the smile, removing facial hair, evening out skin tones with the Magical Skin Tone script and by using other scripts for face and makeup retouching in this section. Make the hair look shiny and healthy in your images with our Hair Highlights script and brushes.

 

CUSTOM ACTIONS, QUALITY CONTROL & MORE

If you have some of your own Custom Actions that you’d like to continue using, add them to the panel! And before you submit a retouched image to your client, use the panel’s handy Quality Control features; they’re great for catching issues that are tough to identify otherwise. And lastly, if you frequently use the same key Adjustment layers just like we do, you’ll like the few quick-access buttons at the bottom of the panel as well.
