It starts in RawTherapee for exposure correction, then jumps immediately into GIMP for wavelet decompose skin retouching, fixing the background and unwanted elements, and finishes with some color curves and slight sharpening.

All of the source files are included for anyone to follow along in the tutorial if they'd like (.xcf, RAW .orf, and full-resolution .jpg are all available for download).

Hope this is helpful!
