Remove Cellulite

Strange question I know, but can anybody tell me exactly what the steps are needed to remove cellulite from a woman's body in an image. I would be incredibly grateful.

Thanks.

Welcome to RP Dave,

If you can post a copy of the photo I am sure you will get more than one solution to your problem.

Duplicate layer
Blur duplicate (I used GB r=4)
Add hide all mask
Paint over blemishes on mask with a low opacity white brush.

Just be careful, you are losing skin texture here, so you may have to add noise to simulate texture.

Dup. Patch tool to remove ripples, occasionally using the fade on the patch tool, this could be better but its just to show you what i would do.

Very small sample, but I fudged around with it. Your model is squeezing her cheeks together, that is what is making the unflattering "dimples". I rounded out her bottom a bit with liquify and then used the healing brush on the "dimples". A higher res file would have much better results.

Wink Bottom Line ?

I 'played' with your picture too ...
  • Removed the 'dimples' with Patch Tool and smoothen with Blur Tool (1)

  • Used the Liquify Filter for a digital 'liposuction' (2)

BigAl,

Great job!
Thanks for sharing your technique!!!
Did you use PS or PSP? If I remember correctly, you are a PSP user... a lot of people here could use your great experience with it .....

"Crack Kills"

I have to ask. Is that dark shadow in the "crack" in the hi-res file as well? The never-ending void...LOL!
