Make Your Reference Photos Fantastic With Photoshop

I'll show you how to use Photoshop to adjust color, skin tones, combine images and more on your reference photo, so you can create a more realistic portrait!

You Need a Good Photo to Make a Great Painting.

It's hard to make a portrait painting better than the photograph you're working from. That's why it's so important to have a good reference photo to start with.

But you don't always get that luxury as an artist. Sometimes the photos you are given to work with have color that is off, distracting background, and other elements that would not enhance your painting. Other times, you might need to change a photo to suit the needs of the client: a person needs to be taken out, or added in. A color needs to be changed on clothing. Or maybe Or you just want to make it better so you can give a really nice gift to a loved one.

What if you want to come up with your own design for a painting, combining many photos together. How to do it?

In this class, I will show you how.

I'll start with the basics: how to get Photoshop (at the best price), how to understand it a bit so you can use it, how to adjust skin tones, combine images, edit them and more.

Enroll below and I look forward to teaching you!
