In this new class, Dr. Brown provides several insider secrets for retouching portraits such as whitening teeth and eyes, enhancing eyelashes, reducing 5 oâ€™clock shadow, removing wrinkles, and color correcting skin tones all within Adobe Photoshop. Dr. Brown uses multiple blending techniques, healing brushes, and the Auto Blending layers to accomplish his retouching effects. These techniques are all focused on throughout the show, with some fun antics mixed in along the way.
