How Do I Make A Pretty? by Gyakusetsu How Do I Make A Pretty? by Gyakusetsu
This is a photoshop tutorial for those people who have a beautiful model, beautiful pose, beautiful composition, but need that extra UMPH to make it look its best.

These are the 8 steps that I normally use in making an ok image into something Fabulous. I use simple tools (burn, color balance, bandaid) to achieve these results. You have to have a simple understanding of photoshop and it's tools to execute this properly, but I would still call this an intermediate tutorial.


Created in Adobe Photoshop 8.

Image used by expressed permission of the model/photographer. No, I don't know this guy in real life (damn it) ;)

Personally, I thought the 'tutorial' was very nice. I like tutorials that keep the text simple and leave me to figure out some things (to learn on my own in some way). I was really looking how to get rid of facial blemishes in photos, and this showed me a good trick. Thanks!

this isn't a tutorial, silly. I mean you showed what the knowledge of photoshop can acheive, but a tutorial is showing how to do something, not just that it is done. still a good effect, I like the before and after effect, but not even intermediate.

I love how I can freely be a bitch about things, since you're you and I am me. I am sure you appreciate it...

I'm assuming you downloaded the file and went through the steps? What about it needs improving to be more precise?

oh no, I was just being a smart ass. I couldn't use photoshop correctly if I had made the program myself.

this really isnt a tutorial, considering you're not really explaining how to do it. and how did you change his background to a wall and get the reflection on the wall like that? its a sweet result

Oh, no problem! Constructive criticism is ALWAYS better than none.

I actually commend you for being honest :)
