Some of you may know that I write a column in Rangefinder Publishing's AfterCapture Magazine. The AfterCapture website generously converts articles from the print version and makes them accessible for anyone.
I recently did a two-part article on enhancing portraits. The first installment, Portrait Enhancement, Part 1, details my workflow for cleaning up an image in Photoshop.
The second installment, Portrait Enhancement, Part 2 utilizes the cleaned up image and I go through the process of using Painter to create a watercolor-style result.
AfterCapture is available as a free subscription. You just need to fill out a qualification form to receive it in the mail. Alternatively, you can regularly visit the website to keep up with current issues.
