First Look: Pro Retouch 2.0
As you probably have figured out, we’re beg fans of Totally Rad, both the products and the people who create them. RadLab has pretty much become our go to post processing plugin (both in Photoshop and Lightroom) for creating awesome styles in a fun to use, intuitive interface. In fact, we used RadLab on every photograph in our new ice cream themed eBook, chill. Well, last week, Boutwell & Co. released a brand new tool called Pro Retouch 2.0. It’s a fantastic set of Photoshop actions, specifically tailored to…you guessed it, retouching. In this video, we’re giving you a quick overview of just how easy, and more importantly, how fast you can get superb results when retouching your photos. In literally just a few minutes, you can smooth out skin tone, reduce blotchiness, magically erase imperfections, remove red cast, even enhance eyes, all without obliterating the subject’s natural skin texture, so they don’t look like they are made of plastic. Oh, and did we mention that Pro Retouch 2.0 is fast? It also works beautifully with RadLab. Once you’re done with the retouch, you can use RadLab to give your image some additional toning and style. And, since RadLab can apply your recipe as a Smart Object, your styling is as non-destructive as your retouching. So, whether you shoot portraits, weddings, seniors or newborns, Pro Retouch 2.0 will get you better results, fast.
But wait, there’s more…
To celebrate the launch of Pro Retouch 2.0, we’re releasing a brand new free Recipe Pack for RadLab. This is number seven, for those of you keeping track and it was inspired by one of our current favorite shows, AMC’s Hell On Wheels. Just like our previous six recipe packs, feel free to use the recipes as-is, or as a starting point for further customization.
