Everything happens on layers what we do in Photoshop. You can work on only one layer or merge your layers, but the professional way is to keep every element on a separate layer. This way you will always be able to change your composition. We already discussed the Layers panel and its options, but there are lots of other features in Photoshop related to using layers. In this section we are going to focus on tools that you can use on layers and how to use special layers.
If you ever wanted to learn how to properly use the tools in Photoshop to retouch portraits then this seminar is for you. We start off with best practices for using the essential retouch tools like the Clone Stamp and the Healing Brush, then we move on to more advanced editing.

The presentation is 45 minutes long and it is the unedited recorded version of the live seminar.

In this tutorial you can learn to create realistic blood. Beware, it will be a little bit gory! Don’t show it your kids and your grandma! I’m using a photograph and I draw the dripping blood on the picture trying to capture the volume and realistic look. I don’t use any special brushes or plug-ins (as usual) so you only need to find a photo to be able to follow this tutorial.
Please try not to start with your girlfriends photograph or the family portrait 🙂
