PRE-PURCHASE QUESTIONS

Beauty Retouch Panel Buttons Overview

TOP OF THE PANEL

We provided an easy access to the Liquify filter and our Sharpening script right at the top of the panel.

SKIN RETOUCHING

The key skin retouching techniques in beauty photography — Dodge & Burn and Frequency Separation — take time to master, but this section of the panel can help you set up the necessary layers in a click of a button, so you can focus on the actual technique and not waste your time on its setup. Developing a solid understanding of how these techniques work is the first step toward mastering them. Check out some helpful video tutorials on our website. Our Master Dodge & Burn video course is also a great help for those who are still learning the technique.

FACE, MAKEUP & HAIR RETOUCHING

After the skin is cleaned up, it’s time to beautify the rest of the face. You can accomplish this by: adding vitality to the eyes, brightening the smile, removing facial hair, evening out skin tones with the Magical Skin Tone script and by using other scripts for face and makeup retouching in this section. Make the hair look shiny and healthy in your images with our Hair Highlights script and brushes.

CUSTOM ACTIONS, QUALITY CONTROL & MORE

If you have some of your own Custom Actions that you’d like to continue using, add them to the panel! And before you submit a retouched image to your client, use the panel’s handy Quality Control features; they’re great for catching issues that are tough to identify otherwise. And lastly, if you frequently use the same key Adjustment layers just like we do, you’ll like the few quick-access buttons at the bottom of the panel as well.

I Purchased the Beauty Retouch Panel but Only See Pixel Juggler In My Account

POSSIBLE REASONS & HOW TO FIX IT:

Cause #1: Please make sure you are not logging into an empty duplicate account

Please make sure you are logging into the account with the User ID (or email) that you used during the Beauty Retouch purchase process. Check your mailboxes to see which one of your emails the purchase confirmation from our website was sent to and login with that email.

Please reset your password if you don’t remember it.

 

Cause #2: Please be sure to enter your correct email address at the time of the purchase

You did not receive any registration or purchase confirmations from our website? It may be due to the fact that you entered a wrong email by mistake.

Try to login using the User ID which you created during the purchase, then update your email in your account.

 

Cause #3: Check Your SPAM or JUNK MAIL folder

If you are not receiving our Purchase Confirmation or Password Reset emails, please check your Junk Mail folder. It was most likely trapped there, given you had typed the correct email while registering on our website.

Please make sure to check your Junk Mail folder. If your mailbox is located on your proprietary domain (for example, contact@johnsmith.com), it has most likely been captured by your spam filter, and is kept in the Junk Mail folder on your server – proprietary domains as opposed to public mail services such as GMAIL, HOTMAIL or YAHOO, often filter out automated email and prevent it from getting into your mailbox.

IF NONE OF THE ABOVE FIXES HELPED:

Don’t panic, we’ll sort it out!

We have all the information about each purchase in our logs, but we don’t know what your User IDis and what PayPal account is associated with it, so please submit a ticket, and let us know:

  • Your first and last name;
  • Your User ID on our website;
  • Your Paypal transaction ID and a screenshot of your Paypal notification. THe screenshot is optional, but it may speed up the process of locating your purchase on our end;
  • If we notice a mismatch between the Paypal info and your User info, we reserve the right to ask further questions about your purchase.

We are a small team of artists, and we handle customer tickets during our working hours, under the First Come, First Served service policy.

Regardless, don’t worry, we will sort it all out, and you will have the panels in your Photoshop in no time!
