Photoshop Restoration and Retouching is a hands-on book for designers, photographers, commercial illustrators, and artists who seek to make the best out of the not perfect. The world is full of imperfections, but professionally-prepared images never show those blemishes, cellulite, poorly reproduced colors, stray hairs or wrinkles. This book will walk readers through all kinds of repair and correction, including:

Improving contrast and tone
Correcting color, either from a bad original or a bad scan
Removing unwanted elements from photographs
Repairing heirloom originals with problems such as mold spots, cracks, or torn corners
Improving portraits by removing blemishes, removing distracting elements, or replacing closed eyes
Tips and tricks for glamour and fashion photographers
