skin retouch help

Sorry,

I had repost in the wrong area of forum. What is the best way to clear goose bumps on skin like the provided image. I would like a smooth transition of skin. I have used gaussian blur but it still looks like it's been blurred especially with the edging. Any help would be appreciated

Re: Skin retouch help.

Hi xxxmen,

Create two layer.

on the 1st layer run dust/scratches filter.
then on the 2nd layer run high pass filter with Soft Light Mode.

you can also use Surface blur or median filter on the 1st layer instead of dust/scratches.

There are a lot of method for smoothen the skin but it works best for smooth transistion.

Ash

Re: Skin retouch help.

Is this 2nd layer with high pass and soft light beneath the dust and scratch layer or above it?

Re: Skin retouch help.

above the dust and scratches layer this brings back detail. I used the surface blur filter when I use to do this method myself. Now a days I basically use the high pass filter inverted g.blurred and set to linear light hide all and paint on the smoothing with white around 40-50% opacity.

Took me less than a minute to tune Neat Image by hand to get this. Not sure it would work as well on a higher resolution image. But with slightly different settings than those I used, possibly.

Re: Skin retouch help.

Neat Image is a Third Part Plugin. It is very good plugin.

There is not need to go everytime with the third party plugins. Photoshop has all the inbuilt feature for all kind of enhancement. You need to learn something from lynda.com. Join it for 1 month. It has wonderful video tutorials for basic and advance retouching.

... Yep... choosing the right Forum can be confusing ....

Having to search among multiple Threads on the same subject, just to be able to view/download the picture in question or see what has been suggested/done already, can also be confusing and a bit annoying too ... The risk is not getting response.

If you think you have posted in the wrong Forum and would like to change that, instead of re posting the same Thread somewhere else, ask any of the Mods to move it for you ...

I'm going to merge your Threads here...
