I have been retouching like crazy this past week and two. It's amazing to me how I continue to find images that challenge me, and really make me scratch my head. This past week I used Content Aware Scale for the first time, to some excellent results. I showed it to my students this week, and they were all very surprised at the results.
Unfortunately, when I tried it on two other images, I received the usual Content Aware Sucks results. Oh well, win some, lose some.
I am having a Basic Course starting this Wednesday (yes, tomorrow), due to request. If you want to Rock in Photoshop, now is your time to skip the youtube nonsense, and learn how to make your images awesome!

For Advanced Photoshop Users, this tutorial schooled me on hair. This guy really did some amazing trickery. While my first thought, was that it was too complicated, but it really wasn't, with excellent results. Aside from the off-color joke about 2 minutes it (hilarious) it kept me watching until the end.
