The first challenge! In order to get your speed up and your quality consistent, Rafael, Lety and myself thought we should offer a weekly challenge file. We will start with a little easier file, and then get into a more complex file. Above I went ahead and retouched the file in under 2 minutes. Here is a link to the original file, so you can start to practice. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ip8rptkcocjdp5i/AAAjT0bEi3rUHTNx6xlS1hULa?dl=0
To answer Andrea's question, this is for you to practice getting your speed up to where you want it to be. There isn't really a requirement to get this done in any specific time frame. But, please comment below on how quickly you were able to retouch the image after several trys. We would like everyone to be able to retouch this image within three minutes. It will help you get faster and it will start to train you to go through the steps each time you retouch an image. Good luck!
