11. What is Photoshop clipping Path?

If you are designing something that requires an image cutout of some sort, there are several ways of achieving the desired result, depending on the type of image you're working with and the background onto which it'll be placed. The most common method is to use Photoshop clipping paths to cut out the image.

This tutorial explains how to use a vector path to mask off areas of a picture so it can be placed within InDesign or Quark XPress as an EPS file. Only an EPS (encapsulated postscript) image file can contain vector data. A path created in Photoshop is very much like an Adobe Illustrator path...

13. What is Retouching?

In this tutorial, I will show you how to repair some image noise from a low-quality shot, and I will show you an extremely quick and easy way to smooth out a person’s face. The woman in this shot is not a model, and she has a lot of character so we don’t want to overdo it with the smoothing. We will make it look real and natural.

The technique can be applied to a beauty shot as well; you would just have to adjust the settings on some of the steps to get a more extreme smoothing effect.If you look at the blue channel, you will notice that it doesn’t look so good. There are a lot of JPG artifacts that you don’t really see when looking at the RGB...

17. What is Color Correction?

The first illustration is an image that I snapped during a trip to the amazing city of Hong Kong. As you can see, the image is lacking a bit of contrast and also has a slight color cast to it.

It's really not that bad (or is it?), but just looks somewhat dirty. You will soon see a huge difference in image quality. You can download this image to work with during the tutorial, or pick an image of your own.

18. Enhancing Image with Selective Color Adjustments

Step 1
Below is our starting image of a couple on a beach. We also need to download a photo of a beach that we’ll use to improve the water and sky in the base image...

First, the base photograph looks washed out. It just isn’t that interesting. Who wants to visit this boring beach? We’ll be fixing that. Regardless of what I’m working on, I always separate the foreground subject matter from the background. Most times, I use the Extract Filter located in the Filters Menu...

19. Boosting Contrast And Color With the Luminosity Mask

In this Photoshop photo editing tutorial, we're going to learn how to boost the contrast and color of an image using a little-known trick to select pixels based on their luminosity (lightness) values, which is officially known as "activating the luminosity mask".

Once we have our selection, we're going to combine it with a layer blend mode to add more life to the image and give it a bit more visual snap.
