Meet the Author

Glenn Honiball comes from a long line of artistic family members. His grandfather was a cartoonist and a painter, and his father was a very talented artist involved in advertising. In 1985, Glenn started in the pre-press industry and was trained on the million-dollar HELL Chromacom system (which, along with Scitex, was the only proprietary retouching system around) and worked on it for nine years. He also worked on a Silicon Graphics machine running Barco Creator and Alias Eclipse retouching software. Glenn migrated to Photoshop after considerable experience on high-end systems coupled with a good pre-press background. He has worked with several versions of Photoshop and found them easy to learn, having come from a background where string commands were the norm.

    RETOUCHED!

    Do you retouch photographs for a living? If you do, this book is for you. Author Glenn Honiball, has written an outstanding end user book that helps you and your client with such tasks as fixing the color of an image, create something that doesn't currently exist in an image, or prepare an image for use in a special medium. Glenn, begins by giving you a sense of what a day in the retoucher's professional life might entail. Next, the author covers how to make corrections that really improve the power of an image. Then, he helps you understand how to approach those jobs in which you or your client wants to put something in the image that isn't currently there. The author continues by discussing how to use special colors and manipulate colors to get the output you or your client are seeking. In addition, he goes over how to create realistic, if sometimes fantastic, compositions. The author also covers the typical commercial retouching request of taking an image intended for a magazine or brochure and making it usable at poster or even billboard size. Then, the author discusses the particular problems and techniques for avoiding those problems when your image's final destination is the local newspaper. Finally, the author considers the particular retouching challenges and Photoshop tools that can help you prepare an image intended for industrial packaging. This excellent book covers realistic retouching techniques, not the specific shortcuts for tools. By realistic, the author means that although your images may contain fantastic or unreal subject matter, they shouldn't look obviously retouched.
