We've put together a beautiful book for you to get inspired and learn some real-world professional Retouching & Photography tricks and techniques from a successful internationally published photographer, retoucher and educator Julia Kuzmenko McKim. The cover photo won second place in the global Wacom & AfterCapture Digital Imaging Contest 2012 in the Portrait category, and you can follow its retouching process with Julia in a 5-page illustrated text and 40-minute narrated video workshop.
It's an inspirational book with lots of beautiful images, retouching tips, articles and a few illustrated text and video tutorials for amateur and professional photographers who edit their work in Adobe Photoshop. This book is created with intermediate and advanced Photoshop users in mind, so if you are a beginner, please start with our "Creative Retouching Essentials in a Day" interactive ebook, so that the things that are used and demonstrated in the video workshop and tutorials in this book make sense to you.

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime", I'm going to teach you to "fish" with the retouching tools I myself utilize every day, and you will be able to take it from there.
