How to Airbrush like a Professional (let's try this again)

Recommended Posts

By popular demand, (and explicit force) I will download the whole tutorial here...step by step.

Only because I love paint.net and this community so much, and I have been a guilty lurker for so long.

So basically this tutorial will let you edit photos of people in high quality. The example photo is a pretty low quality, but the same process applies for all pictures.

For example, you can go from this picture:

5kncqv.jpg

to this

using the same process.

Oh, and P.S. before you start insulting the model, it's me. :D

Start up your Paint.net program, pick a picture, and get ready to learn!

STEP ONE:

Have fun with this. I edit EVERY good picture I find. It's addicting.

I just notice why this tut takes a long time to load.

Do NOT use PNG, use JPG.

If not, this tut will be locked.

yes i agree :D

it took half an hour to upload ALL the picture files individually and then paste the codes into the tutorial

but it's okay haha, it was worth it

it took me two years of playing with paint.net to figure this stuff out, so it's worth it haha
