If you do any kind of portrait retouching then you can't afford not to buy this book. It has great tips and very inspirational. I have some minor complaints (please read long version of review) but those weren't enough to lower my rating.
First I'd like to say that I have absolutely no relation with the author (I wish we could be friends:). As some reviewers complained that friends of the author made positive reviews to increase the rating. I'd like to respond to them by saying Julia is very responsive to her fans and whenever people ask questions or say something nice on a post she wrote in a blog, she replies to every single one of them. Really she is that nice and helpful.
About the book: well,it is full of great tips on retouching from simple tools such as healing brush and clone/stamp tool to advance techniques like frequency separation. The book is also full of inspirational beautiful photos from her portfolio. Not only that, but also a youtube link or smartphone code with some images on how they were retouched. The tips section from other pros is also very helpful. I personally read a couple of them that made me say "wow I didn't think of that before".
Ok, what I didn't like: well, the font is very very small in the pages with retouching tutorials. I mean there's information that you could spread over 40 pages in other books that are somehow fit in 5-6 pages. The content is great, you can easily spend an entire day applying what you learned in 1 page alone. However, for people with bad eye sight, it would be a challenge. I hope that will be fixed in future publications.
Another complaint is that the book feels more like a magazine rather than a reference. But honestly, I could care less.Read more ›
It helped me a lot improve my knowledge of Photoshop and the digital image retouching.
I also love it, because you can read it on your iPad, on your computer or other tablet. The book is also well created in the sense that the links are clickable in the document itself (when read from an iPad in the Books application) and the youtube videos open directly.
Great job Julia and Team!
I commend you!
