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


Recommended Posts

This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it

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:

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!

Excellent work!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

i'd suggest playing with the brightness in the "curves" graph

bring the line up, it'll make it brighter.

What an excellent tutorial you have here, lindsaykorsen! And far more convenient to read than having to download anything, wouldn't you say? ;)

Great work, very much so.

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
