Red face help with facial hair

Working on a hi-res cover, and have a very hairy model. I'm in the process of giving the gal a new jawline, but before I get much further, I really could use some help removing the hair without bluring.... (unretouhced jawline-left image).
Thanks in advance for the help!
~Nancy~

Re: help with facial hair

Nan, I ran the Noiseware plugin in PS on the image in the default settings. It smoothed away the hair nicely. Then I found that by backing off the Luminance Slider in the Noise Reduction setting box, there was tremendous finite control that adds the hair back in if you like. The result at this setting looked good to me but the lattitude is there for more or less smoothing. There was still a bit of white color right near the ear but a quick brush ob\ver it with surrounding skin color and a layer set to Color blend mode got did the trick.
Regards, Murray

Re: help with facial hair

not sure this will help I am kinda blind most of the time
i duplicated the original layer twice
selected the first layer and used the arrow keys to move it down 1 pixel and to the left 1 pixel set blending mode to darken.
selected the second layer and moved it up 1 pixel and to the right 1 pixel set blending mode to lighten

Re: help with facial hair

Thanks Ziaphra.... I posted that at 4:20am and was just too tired at the time... here are the steps for PS:

A. Ctrl +J to duplicate background (next 4 steps will create a separate file for you to use as your pattern with the Healing Tool set to Pattern)

1. File > New and create a custom file of 64px X 64px
2. Edit > Fill and use 50% gray
3. Filter > Artistic > Film Grain with Grain setting of 1 & Intensity of 5 depending on existing grain of picture
4. Select > All, Edit > Define Pattern (name it something you'll remember.... say.... um... 'Skin')

B. Go back to your photo and activate the Healing Brush & set source to Pattern (choose 'Skin') & brush blend to Screen

C. Using large brush, paint over all the skin areas.... paint the heck out of it cuz you're going to adjust the opacity of this layer anyway..... maybe to 75%

D. Ctrl+J this retouched layer, change the Healing Brush to Multiply and use same pattern to refine the face... when done adj. the opacity of this layer, too....

You can even go over wrinkles! This is Katrin Eismann's 'Barbie Doll Skin' formula....

Beth
