Re: Double chin problem!

bubblebats, welcome to RetouchPRO

It is much better if you do not link to images on other servers, since those links can break and that makes the forum thread essentially useless for future readers. After you post your less than 100K version, you could link to a site that is hosting a larger version.

There is a video here that might be of benefit.

My amateurish try at your photo using the video method

Re: Double chin problem!

heal out the dark line on the top chin and then using liquify reshape the jaw to make it a little smaller.

Re: Double chin problem!

This is my try. Liquify, color adjustment on redness of chin. Added just a little bit of sharpening.

Re: Double chin problem!

I just cloned out her first chin and then used liquify to reshape the head.

Re: Double chin problem!

Bubblebats,
You had asked how to do it. Double chins are fairly easy to get rid of by themselves. In a picture they are just two dimensional, and composed of just lighter areas that should be dark. Light reflects off the skin there, when normally it would be shadow. Reshaping is usually not required. Simply sample some of the darker skin on the lower part of the neck line. Use that color to darken the double chin area. Look at someone else's chin in a photo (photo, magazine) to see what your goal is. Work on a copy of your image, then try a few times until you get it right. It usually does not take long.

Re: Double chin problem!

This is my first post on this forum, so I hope the attachment works.

I selected about half the chin and well down her neck with a fast lasso select.
Then Filter>Distort>Pinch. It took a pretty high number... about 88. I didn't do any other retouching, but so far it looks like an improvement. Real quick. I just learned this today on a Layers Mag tute. Cropped and resized so I could attach.

Re: Double chin problem!

Thanks, Nan. Took all of about 20 seconds. The post took much longer.
