This thread may give you some good pointers:

Fixing double chins

Here is a tutorial that might help too:

I gave it a quick go...

1. Duplicate image
2. Use liquify to remove double chin
Filter>Liquify

Use the freeze tool and freeze areas of the lower face that you do don't want changed.

Now use the Forward Warp tool to slowly push the unmasked areas of the face up...removing the double chin.

You can use the Thaw Mask tool to unfreeze areas, and you might experiment with the pucker tool on the chin area.

Select OK

3. The new chin area might have some jaggies....use the blur tool to soften these areas.

4. Add a bit of noise to the overly smooth areas.

5. Create a new layer, use a brush set to multiply and opacity of 10%, color black...paint in shadows along the neck of the new chin area. Lower this layer's opacity if you need to.

6. Apply a levels adjustment to boost the colors

7. Apply a slight unsharp mask

T Paul lists two very good resources.

I used the Liquify Filter to fix the chin(s) in your photo. I used also the Clone Stamp tool to put back in the hair distorted by the tool and an Empty Layer set to Soft Light to shade the neck. On the neck, I added .50 of noise. Blur tool @ about 60 on the jaw line.

I agree with your Bizzyb - you don't want to alter her so much she doesn't look like her anymore, and completely removing the double chin could do that. You simply want to de-emphasise it a little. I think you managed it pretty well, though I think you could soften the line on her neck just a little more.

How To Do That

Caitlin,
How Do You Suggest I Do That, I Tried With The Clone Too But Did Not Look Very Good. Not Sure How To Soften It Otherwise, Thanks For Your Encouragement. Diana

Hi Diana,

I just had a quick go on your latest version. I used blur and dodge to largely remove the fold on her neck. I think that makes the double chin less prominent. I removed the baby's red eye while I was there too!
