Professional Masking | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/color_range_quickmask_expand_feather-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/color_range_quickmask_expand_feather-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/color_range_quickmask_expand_feather-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/color_range_quickmask_expand_feather.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />For Advanced Photoshop Magazine #130, I was asked to show how I create my selections. In this extended video, I'm going to show you the ins and outs of Professional Masking. Properly masking an image with Adobe Photoshop is often done using one of the simple selection tools like Magic Wand or Lasso. This is simply the wrong approach. You should actually be using Color Range and QuickMask. If you're itching to know how I work around these tools, you've come to the right place. I'm going to let you in on the tips and tricks that I use behind the scenes in order to come up with a clean and accurate final image. Lets get started.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-extended-cloning-preview" rel="bookmark" title="Extended Cloning Preview | Photoshop Tutorial">Extended Cloning Preview | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-color-channels" rel="bookmark" title="Color Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial">Color Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/behind-the-retouching-noureddine" rel="bookmark" title="Behind The Retouching | Noureddine M">Behind The Retouching | Noureddine M </a></li> </ol> </div>

Smart Objects and Smart Filters | Photoshop Basic 2 Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/smart_objects_smart_filters-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/smart_objects_smart_filters-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/smart_objects_smart_filters-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/smart_objects_smart_filters.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Whether you are retouching portraits or composites, the Smart Object is, and always will be, the right way to go. In this short session, I will tell you all about the magic of Smart Objects and Smart Filters. For any retoucher, it is important to develop a non-destructive workflow. Smart Objects and Smart Filters will give you the ability to go back and forth between your actions without permanently damaging your photo.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-quickmask" rel="bookmark" title="QuickMask | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial">QuickMask | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-color-channels" rel="bookmark" title="Color Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial">Color Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-alpha-channels" rel="bookmark" title="Alpha Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial">Alpha Channels | Photoshop Intermediate Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

10 More Things Still Missing in Photoshop CC for Retouchers
<img width="128" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/10_more_missing_photoshop-128x84.png" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/10_more_missing_photoshop-128x84.png 128w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/10_more_missing_photoshop-255x168.png 255w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/10_more_missing_photoshop.png 304w" sizes="(max-width: 128px) 100vw, 128px" />Adobe has released another update to Photoshop CC. They even released a pretty interesting video showing the future of the entire suite of products. While this was a video to showcase their new partnership with Microsoft, there is plenty to look forward to. Unfortunately, I am not a graphic designer, illustrator, or video editor. I have only seen one thing out of Adobe since the initial release of CC over a year ago that I even cared about, much less used (Linked Smart Objects). Sadly, I even needed to be an advanced composite user to even care about that. My Previous Top 10 List was passed along to Adobe's Engineers by Julieanne Kost (thanks). While I don't know if anything I wrote about the first time will ever make it into Photoshop for Photographers and Retouchers, I feel it's important to keep them on their toes. Therefore, I bring to your attention 10 more things still missing in Photoshop for retouchers.<div class='yarpp-related-rss yarpp-related-none'> No related posts. </div>

Rulers and Guides | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial

Rulers and guides come in handy because they help you create specific points in your image that you may want to refer to at a later point in time.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Magic Wand and Quick Selection | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/3-PSIntro_7_Magic_Wand-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/3-PSIntro_7_Magic_Wand-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/3-PSIntro_7_Magic_Wand-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/3-PSIntro_7_Magic_Wand.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Aside from the Lasso-based tools, we can also use the Magic Wand when it comes to making selections in Photoshop. You can press and hold the Quick Selection Tool to choose the Magic Wand Tool. When you click on a section in your image, it selects an area based on the range of colors that your provide, limited by the value of your Tolerance in the Options bar. Photoshop’s default Tolerance is 32, but you can increase or decrease that value to grab more areas at once or less areas at once respectively.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Lasso, Polygonal Lasso, Magnetic Lasso | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_6_Lasso1-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_6_Lasso1-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_6_Lasso1-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_6_Lasso1.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />The purpose of making a selection, is so that you can make changes within a limited, and controlled area.There are a variety of tools you should consider when making selections in your image. There are several that will allow you make direct selections by drawing them, and a few that let you make your selections based on color. I will preface this by saying that make generic selections like this might create what is called a Layer Mask, none of the techniques I am going to talk about are ones that I would teach to my students. they are simplistic, and will not yield optimal results. The reason I am talking about them with you now, is because they are an easy way to get you to your end goals. While they are not the best, they are simply the easiest for you to get started with.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Selective Color | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_5_Selective_Color-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_5_Selective_Color-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_5_Selective_Color-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_5_Selective_Color.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Selective Color is the go-to tool for simple color correction. Little need for masking, and no confusing RGB sliders. You just need someone to give you a little direction, and you will find how easy this tool can be. As with the other Adjustment Tools, you can find it with the Adjustments Palettee, which is found within Window – Adjustments. The second way is at the bottom of the Layers Palette, with the Black and White Circle icon for New Adjustment Layers. Lastly, it’s also in Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Selective Color.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Vibrance | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_4_Vibrance-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_4_Vibrance-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_4_Vibrance-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_4_Vibrance.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Let’s say you have an image that’s looking pretty pale. When you want to adjust the saturation of an image, I normally don’t recommend using the Saturation Adjustment. Instead, what we’ll be using is the Vibrance Adjustment, because it has Saturation included, and gives you more control over your adjustments. Over at the Adjustments Palette, you can select the Vibrance icon. You can also find it at the bottom of your Layers Palette, as well as in Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Vibrance.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Levels | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_3_Levels-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_3_Levels-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_3_Levels-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/3-PSIntro_3_Levels.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />When you want to create tonal changes the easiest and simplest way possible, your best bet is to use Levels. Simply go over to the Adjustments palette (or if it isn’t open yet, go to Window – Adjustments). There, click on the icon that says “Levels”. Another way would be to go to the Layers palette and click on the Black/White Circle icon that says “Create new fill or adjustment layer”. Finally, a third way of doing it is to go over to Layer – New Adjustment Layer – Levels.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Adjustment Layers | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/3-PSIntro_2_Adjustment_Layers-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/3-PSIntro_2_Adjustment_Layers-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/3-PSIntro_2_Adjustment_Layers-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/3-PSIntro_2_Adjustment_Layers.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Adjustment Layers work like tinted sheets of glass that you overlay on top of your image one at a time. It’s kind of like a tinted or colored light bulb. You can turn on/off the effect, or adjust the values as a separate layer on top of your original image background layer. For instance, on top of your base layer (original image), we can make tone adjustments as well as color adjustments. Each of these adjustments will be placed on separate layers, on top of your original background image. Because you’re working on a separate layer for all these adjustments, you are not causing any permanent damage to your original background base image. You are effectively preserving it pixel by pixel in case you need to undo your changes later. As an example, when you click on one of the icons in the Adjustments Palette, it will automatically add a new layer in your Layers Palette, as well as open up the Properties window for that particular adjustment you chose.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Color Picker | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial

At a basic level, it can be used to choose a color, and then then you can paint with that color. Once you become more familiar with how it works, it can be used to match colors, transfer color values from one program to another, for internet use, or otherwise communicate with graphic designers and pressmen. This will be a simple introduction at this point. None of that crazy stuff.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-selective-color" rel="bookmark" title="Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Selective Color | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/camera-raw-local-adjustments" rel="bookmark" title="Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial">Camera Raw Local Adjustments Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

It could be removing flyaway hair, dust on the lens, skin blemishes, or any of the other hundred things I could think of. Some corrections require some skill, and knowledge to handle the various tools properly. One tool stands alone for it's absolute simplicity, the Spot Healing Brush. Older versions of this tool were pretty crappy, and gave it immediate negative feels, and no one really wanted to use it. Myself included. However, with the release of CS6 and then CC, Adobe has continued to improve upon how smart it's automatic functions work. If you are new to Photoshop, check out how easy it is to clean up your images.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/masking-simplified" rel="bookmark" title="Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial">Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-smart-objects-inside-smart-objects" rel="bookmark" title="Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

10 Things Still Missing in Photoshop CC for Retouchers

Mindblowingly complex, but nearly flawless. Recently, Adobe announced all the new 2014 features for the Creative Cloud Suite of products. While I am sure that graphic designers, 3D modelers, and video technicians have plenty to be excited about, as an Image Retoucher, I find this to be another lack-luster release.&#160;<br><a class="more-link" title="Read More" href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/10-things-missing-in-photoshop">Read More</a><div class='yarpp-related-rss yarpp-related-none'> No related posts. </div>

Navigator, Hand, and Zoom Tools | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_5_Hand-Zoom-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_5_Hand-Zoom-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_5_Hand-Zoom-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_5_Hand-Zoom.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />When it comes to navigating around your image, there are two tools and one palette that will come in really handy. This video will walk you through how to use the Navigator Palette, Hand Tool, and Zoom Tool. These are some of the most basic items in Photoshop, and they are really easy to use. Except maybe the Zoom Tool (otherwise known as the Magnifaction Tool). Adobe broke it in back in CS4, but I will show you how to make it work like it used to, in case you find that you hate it as much as I do.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/masking-simplified" rel="bookmark" title="Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial">Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-smart-objects-inside-smart-objects" rel="bookmark" title="Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

History Palette | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_4_History-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_4_History-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_4_History-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_4_History.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes, especially when it comes to perfecting our retouching. In those moments when you just can’t find the right adjustment for something, the History Palette comes to the rescue. By default, you will have 20 past steps that you can undo. The history palette basically just allows you to go back to your previous actions and correct past mistakes. Initially, when you go to the history palette, you will see your image and the label that says “Open”. This means that you haven’t really done anything yet but open the image. Start by clicking the pulldown Window - History, and it will open the History Palette.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/masking-simplified" rel="bookmark" title="Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial">Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-smart-objects-inside-smart-objects" rel="bookmark" title="Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Layers Palette | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_3_Layers1-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_3_Layers1-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_3_Layers1-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/2-PSIntro_3_Layers1.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Layers make up a huge chunk of the magic of Photoshop. It is one of the most crucial tools that you can use especially for non-destructive editing, but it is also one of the most confusing if you don’t quite know how to make your way around it. Don’t worry, I will help you master and understand just how each layer works by giving you the simplest and most basic overview.<div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/masking-simplified" rel="bookmark" title="Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial">Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-smart-objects-inside-smart-objects" rel="bookmark" title="Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>

Options Bar | Photoshop Beginner’s Tutorial
<img width="150" height="84" src="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/2-PSIntro_1_Options_Bar-150x84.jpg" class="webfeedsFeaturedVisual wp-post-image" alt="" style="float: right; margin-left: 5px;" link_thumbnail="" srcset="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/2-PSIntro_1_Options_Bar-150x84.jpg 150w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/2-PSIntro_1_Options_Bar-300x168.jpg 300w, http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/2-PSIntro_1_Options_Bar.jpg 745w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Do you see that toolbar that runs along the top of Photoshop, below the main menu? That is the Options bar. The Options bar changes depending on the tool that you have selected. For instance, if we click on the Eyedropper tool, the Options bar changes into the different options and settings specifically for the Eyedropper tool only. As we go further in this whole Retouching for Beginners crash course, we’ll eventually get to the nitty-gritty of every single tool and their corresponding Options. <div class='yarpp-related-rss'> <h3>Related posts:</h3><ol> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-levels" rel="bookmark" title="Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Levels | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/masking-simplified" rel="bookmark" title="Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial">Masking with Color Range and QuickMask | Photoshop Tutorial </a></li> <li><a href="http://www.theartofretouching.com/blog/photoshop-tutorial-smart-objects-inside-smart-objects" rel="bookmark" title="Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial">Smart Objects Inside Smart Objects | Photoshop Basic Tutorial </a></li> </ol> </div>
