Start to Finish: Butterfly

In this lesson, I show you how you’d optimize an image that was submitted by a Masters Academy member. But, instead of just fixing what was requested (patching a broken butterfly’s wing), I took the image a bit farther to show what I would have done to make the subject stand out and remove distractions from the image.

If you’d like to submit you own image for me to potentially process in a future lesson, please do so at

Note: The downloadable practice images for this lesson have been compressed into a .zip archive. You fill need to double-click on the file after downloading to expand the file before attempting to use the images in Photoshop.
