The Art of Photo Retouching

Most people know that Photoshop is a software that is used to manipulate photos. I wanted to share a “before and after” sample of a photo of Victoria Beckham. This was not done for a client, but for my own practice. Occasionally, when business is slow, I like to keep up on my skills. I chose a particularly “flawed” image to show just how powerful Photoshop can be. (Of course it helps to have  a skillful hand and an artistic eye!) As you can see photo retouching is a delicate art.


I suppose there’s no need to expound on this topic of image manipulation, for as the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

So just remember, the next time you find yourself envying the “stunning” model on the cover of your favorite checkout aisle magazine, it’s most likely an embellishment of the truth. But I must admit, a little photo retouching is great for marketing!
