Jeff Rojas is challenging you to see just how much retouching you can finish in 6 minutes. Dubbed the Dirty Edit Challenge, Jeff explains that sometimes you don't need to go overboard for certain clients. Maybe you're not getting paid enough, or maybe you have a ton of images that need retouching. In either situation, this is a great way to see what your strengths and weaknesses are in Photoshop.
Take the Dirty Edit Challenge yourself to see what you can accomplish in the slotted time. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect. Test yourself to see if you can yield a good end product. You may be surprised. Maybe you'll find that you're spending too much time in post. Post your reults in the comments section, and don't cheat!
I decided to challenge myself to see how much retouching I could reasonably get done in 6 minutes. Why is it called the dirty edit challenge? It doesn't have to be perfect. This is a "Good Enough" edit for your average client. I was able to clean up blemishes, enhance facial features, clean up some stray hairs and enhance a bit of the makeup; all without plugins.
