This is a link to one of my UCLA Extension Photoshop Portrait Retouching classes that I teach there. We spend the whole day on iMacs where I have fun working on tons of images with students, showing them how to make their portraits look their best.
This is the class description from UCLA’s site:
Photoshop is a photographer’s best friend, and retouching in Photoshop is a skill that can benefit all kinds of photographers. This hands-on workshop focuses on some of the best tools and techniques to fix and improve any kind of portrait. Learn the advantages of working in .RAW; why layer masks are the key to retouching; how to remove wrinkles and blemishes, smooth out skin and get good skin color, reshape the nose, whiten teeth, add highlights to the hair, dodge and burn effectively; and more. Each student has his/her own computer workstation and works on images with the instructor. By the end of the course, learn how to enhance portraits without revealing that they were retouched in Photoshop.
Prerequisite: Previous experience with Photoshop and a basic knowledge of its tools and functions.Enrollment limited; early enrollment advised. Held in a Mac lab. Internet access required to retrieve course materials.
