Jan 12, 2010 - Not just that. You need pro dSLR camera for high detailed picture. If you have 10mpix "point and shoot" camera you will have really poor detailed picture at 100% crop.
Jan 17, 2013 - omg...this is the easiest tutorial ever! thank you 4 uploading :D
Oct 7, 2009 - What file format is your picture? If it's a jpeg, or other low quality file, it'll pixilate when you zoom in and edit it. You need to work with .tiff or .cr2, etc.
Jul 30, 2009 - The regular Eraser Brush doesn't turn it white if your layer is duplicated....
Jun 9, 2009 - So what if you have a full body image and you dont want the background to be blurred? do u just select her body? or erase the background and clothing to sharpen them?
Nov 18, 2009 - It depends on the resolution of the picture.If you want to zoom far in you need a high resolutuion picture.
Apr 28, 2010 - @xtylertragedy -- Yeah mac's Don't get viruses for a reason. Reason being, Who wants to attack a mac when most ppl are still using a PC? Think about it. If they attack a company they aint gonna make a mac virus, they goin pc. The Iphone was hacked right?

Dec 11, 2008 - The settings I used are just an example. Yo can tune it down as much as you want. :)
Jan 12, 2010 - he is working with hi-res jpeg. 12mpix. But this picture is made by professional dSLR camera, maybe Canon 5D, or Nikon D 300 or so...
Oct 5, 2012 - Thank you! Beautiful girl and beautiful lighting... Don't have to fuck around too much on photoshop when your starting point is good. Just tweak it. A lot of "photographers" just can't shoot, can't use flashes so they spend hours on photoshop creating those gay instagram effects with plastic skin. And of course they love "natural light", because they can't use the lights themselves. Shit in Shit out. This dude does it really well though. Subtle and real. On a good pic! :) Cheers.
Feb 23, 2009 - yeah. that was really helpful thankyou.
Feb 14, 2010 - aha Macs are a load of shit, theres nothing good about them, better things come out of my arse.

Jul 8, 2009 - now when you say the eraser brush do you mean the "History Brush Tool" because yes using the "eraser tool" turns it white....but i understnad what your saying
Jul 30, 2009 - Use a duplicate layer...if you do, the original picture remains underneath and you don't have to worry about losing your History Brush by cropping.
