    Post updated:

    Well while were on subject.

    I took this pic, and the model edited it, and it seems to be super popular on her port


    Is it really that great how she did it?

    Now that I compare I see she fixed blemishes too :o


    Mine: Pretty much nothing done.

    Hers:

    My first time actually trying to remove blemishes, and messing with colors.

    Go easy on me :wiggle: :hsd:

    This is original, only converted to jpeg:

    Finished, with touch ups etc.

    Selective coloring = fail. She has a colorful face/hair, why would you kill the color in the background? It doesn't work.

    Do you have a version with no blemishes + color in the background?

    looks good, the face looks a lot better than my first try at fixing up a face ;)

    only other thing is she kinda has the "deer in the headlights" stare. I think the background works for here eyes (and eye makeup) and lips.

    Selective color should only be done by people who don't think they need selective color to make a great image... In fact I've only ever seen selective color in a way that didn't make me want to stab my eyes out with a spoon and handful of times, the most recent being on S11E03 of TopGear. I like your second edit, but I'm going to post this of the selective color version anyway.

    :rofl: No.

    Her's is terrible. Not only did she make herself look african, she smoothed her skin to the point of absurdity. Not only that, but she did it poorly, she smoothed things alright, but she created massive unnatural shadows and tonal imbalances on her chest and arms, it makes her look like she has a skin condition... She didn't even take the time to remove the large protruding vein from her thigh or the scar on her hip, no, she ENHANCED them. And something weird is going on with her pinky. Her hairline is also ruined and any detail that was in her hair is gone. And I guess she tried to do something fucking stupid like fake blurr on the background...

    I consider this "edit" to be one of the worst I have ever seen, and EXACTLY why you don't ask friends their opinion of your work. AND EXACTLY why the only thing models need to do it sit where you tell them and look pretty. I would NEVER let ANYONE edit one of my images unless they were a professional in the field and I knew something like this wouldn't happen. I would SUE a model if she ever tried this shit one of my images. Holy shit I'm pissed off.

    Ummm... I would consider most of those a compliment to your work, as much as she ruined it, you hear more "great pose/great expression/great angle" more than anything else and that's all you. But modelmayhem is like the myspace of models, everyone is over-nice and trying to suck as many people off as possible so maybe they get another TFCD job and someday make it BIG!

    Honestly though, I wouldn't want my name anywhere near an edit like that, even if she says she did it... It's still too close to your reputation. I would include a section in the model release (you are using model releases, yes?) that they may display the photos as they are given to them but may not edit them in any way that destroys the integrity of the photo and you have the final say on any edits they may do or have done.
