    Good Photoshop retouching books?

    Hi,

    As many may know, I have as much fun "developing" my photos on Photoshop as I do taking them. When I was first learning about photography about 15 years ago I was very intrigued by all the different lab development processes...today the same curiosity transmits for Photoshop, a tool that Im constantly exploring. So I was wondering about some good books about retouching with photoshop for fashion, advertising and modern photography.

    See this post too.
    Although the focus is on general color workflow, portraits get a workout in more than a couple of chapters.

I have a very particular retouching method for my PERSONAL work, which tends to lean towards the agressive side. Now that every once and a while I do paid work I want to learn a more subtle approach without loosing the impact.

    Rafael,its a seriously good book and contains a huge amount of knowledge,its really worth the price,I seen other books cost as much that are not nearly as comprehensive..You wont be disappointed.
