    Hi, TonyTone1,

    Try these:

    There are lots of others if you take a look on the I'net but these should give you something.  Hope this is what you meant by "look as good as the ones in magazine covers".

    Slynky has given you some excellent tutorials, so I really can't add much there. However, remember that the quality of your final image is related to the original input. As Ansel Adams said, "There is nothing worse than a brilliant image of a fuzzy concept." In other words, the images on the magazine photos are the product of photographers with many years of experience in developing concepts and mastering the nuances of lighting, not to mention quality equipment, professional hair and makeup, etc, etc. Sure, once the photo is taken there may be lots of Photoshop work as well - but to get great-looking photos, you need to start with quality in the original images.
