I have a large project coming up where I have to do a lot of product retouching.
It most cases it will be removing French text and replacing it with English equivalent.
I have done a lot of this work in the past and the sort of techniques that have worked quite well for me were:
(a) the "patch" tool for cloning out the existing text (and replacing it with a suitable textured background);
and (b) a combination of the Spherize and Warp features on text to give the appropriate impression of perspective.
It most cases it has worked adequately, but I wouldn't mind some "boot camp" exercises to get back to basics.
Can anyone recommend any specific tutorials that they have come across on these subjects?
Oooh you've hit a hard spot. I've just checked TutsPlus with nothing on it.
But then there's this video that is about text replacement on product retouching:
