Back again with Plearn because these guys seriously rule at putting out quality Photoshop tuts. This week watch Aaron Nace walk you through removing glare in this tut. This is one of those fine details in any advertisement whether digital or traditional that isn’t super noticeable, however, if done properly adds so much to the piece. The glare itself in any form is just distracting enough that when removed adds a bit more of a polish that makes any piece that much more professional looking than if you just left it. Below are my notes:

  • Make sure there’s enough info from one eye for the other
  • Clone stamp
  • Window / Clone source
  • Show overlay
  • Flip Horizontal
  • Paint in
  • Take care of the bulk with the clone stamp
  • Blend in the image with a 50% clone stamp on a new layer

This is a great example of paying attention to the very fine details. Not only does this tutorial show you how to fix a simple and small piece but it also shows the importance of fixing super easy yet crucial, in my opinion, often overlooked parts of a project. I implore you to take a few minutes with every project you work on and look for these fine details before you send a project to your account manager or client. A few extra steps that may or may not go noticed by those that you work with that you care and are invested in making the piece the best it can be! So watch the video above, follow my notes that are bulleted and learn something new. Put it on your to-do list to learn something every day (this is totally unrelated but the entire reason why I have this tutorial and about a 1/3 of the year’s tutorials ready to roll right now) In a year or two you’ll have learned so much you won’t believe how much you’ve progressed.
