This is I have to say the peak of our magic jewelry retouching.
We came far, very far in the last 10 years. We were almost the only company doing jewelry retouching in Downtown Los Angeles 10 years ago.
I need to write you some tips, but I can't reveal all the secrets. I use latest photoshop CS6. That is it. No 3d programs, in fact 3D rendering programs usually look very fake.
YOu need to get good images. At least the stones need to be somewhat decent. You can send shank usually, but if the stones are messed up, then you have a problem.
YOu need to learn how to cutout the jewelry first. That means using the good old pen tool. Nothing else is as accurate as pen tool in Photoshop.
Here is a quick video of one of our tips on our Jewelry Retouching DVD. With this technique you will be able to remove all scratches, dust, and other artifacts from jewerly in no time.
Or you can use the old clone tool and spend hours to remove each dust, scratch from stones.
In this video you can see before and after retouch. It took me only 20 seconds to retouch this piece. I could spend over 1 hour if I would be using the clone tool.
I am constanly adding new videos to our Jewelry Cleaning DVD Tutorial. The latest example is the wonderfula white gold diamond ring. I cleaned it and all the retouching is in video 8 on our DVD.
You get also PSD of the fils, that means photoshop file with all the steps on separate layers.
You can do exactly how I do it.
Here is before and after.
