WHAT TOOLS I USED  FOR THIS PARTICULAR PICTURE:

0_ RAW-Editor. Since I take my pictures in RAW, you have the opportunity to 'mess things up' during the actual photoshoot. In my picture, I did choose the wrong white balance (on purpose of course). This is a common mistake a lot of photographers make. Luckily in the RAW-Editor you can correct it by changing the temperature. And that's what I did for this picture. So this yellow-ish tone will disappear.

 

1_ Spot healing brush. It is a nice tool for removing spots, dirt and dust from your pictures.
And in my case, since I do not use make-up so much, it is a perfect tool to remove (a) pimple(s).

2_ Clone stamp tool. It allows you to copy one area of an image and paste it onto another area of that image.
In my picture, as you can see, my bralet is a little broken so I use the ‘clone stamp tool’ to fix it.

3_ Liquify tool. This tool will allow you to “push and pull” pixels any way you would like.
The ‘liquify’ tool is commonly known for the tool that makes people skinnier.

In my picture I use it to fix my hair and my tattoo.

4_ Color balance. It allows you to change the color of your picture.
And in my picture I added a little more blue&cyan to it (midtones and highlights).

5_ Dodge tool. This tool allows you to brighten up some areas in your picture.
You can choose between the shadowed, midtoned or highlighted areas.
I used this tool for the background (midtoned area)

6_ Levels. I use the levels to brighten or darken my picture. Just whatever feels right to me.

7_ Curves. Same as with the levels, I use this to brighten or darken the picture.

Thus far, a tiny post about how I edit pictures in photoshop.

If you are not familiar with photoshop, this might be a little too much for you.

But no worries because I provide tiny workshops.
