Thanks.
I did a similar high-pass technique at (I think) 7px Highpass, 2.3 blur, but I guess when I did it on the full size image it wasnt as aggressive as what you did on a much smaller image. Plus I did it as a "Light something" layer (can't remember the name).
Do you find that your method is just as effective on larger images?

On a larger image, ofcourse the values need to be adjusted, it also helps to manually clone out some of the larger lumps and also sometimes multiple passes are needed to maintain integrity
I used the size that you posted but had to resize to fit it on the forum

I thought 7px was alright for the original size (orig size was much bigger than what I posted).
I did clone out what I thought I could acceptably do - the acne, lines, creases. I'll have to work on my large area cloning.
What do you sample from to do large areas? Do you slowly build up an area then sample from it with increasingly large tools as it gets cleaned up?

I have lots of questions because your edit was what I was ultimately shooting for. I came close, and was quite happy with my result but it didnt turn out as goos as I saw it in my minds eye.
