I was casting about for some contract work and found a request for
cleaning up jewelry images for a catalog at
http://contractedwork.com/rt.cfm?projectid=8775. I’m good at
Photoshop so I took a look, but unfortunately I was blown away by
what I saw at their website. You probably should have DSL or other
high speed connection to check out this page
http://web.vi/clients/beverlys. If you take a peek, the "before"
images are on the left, and you have to scroll way over to the right
to see the “after” images (unless your screen is at least 2000
In particular, check out those diamonds. Does anyone have an idea
how this is done? I tried a few things in Photoshop and got fairly
close to their “after” images except that in most of the images it
appears the artist has some kind of canned, very crisp images of
diamonds which are substituted for those in the original image. Where
do you get canned images of diamonds like that?
Does anyone here go to such lengths to retouch photos of their own
