The sequel to Photomanipulation 101: Basic Techniques
. This is probably the last of the "basic" tutorials, with more advanced stuff to follow (maybe I can get a few "guest lecturers?")
This tutorial covers simple, quick and easy proportion adjustments (good for fixing the "fish eye" effects of small-aperture lenses), as well as basic instructions for cutting images out of their backgrounds. Special attention is given to "knocking out" and rebuilding hair in stock photos.
Stay tuned for advanced topic such as blending, weathering, and grunge effects (and whatever else I can come up with!)
