3. Exit Quick Mask, invert the selection, choose a good skin tone and fill the area with it @ 75%

I'd just keep doing this on skin areas until I had them all filled. Then, I'd start painting and cloning to smooth. Finally, I'd do delicate paint and clones on the features and get it all blended together.

Oh, I'd make a separate layer for each area, paint, clone, etc. so that I could go back and redo if necessary...

Hi everyone!

...I think I tried everything I know, trying to find a short-cut for improving this image...to no avail....So old "Clone Tool" is where I went back to....with less than acceptable results...

Jak

I think that your tip is a real "gold mine"..
Thank you very much for sharing it!

P.S. being as stubborn as I am...I'll keep on trying!

Thanks to everyone who posted a reply. This is a difficult photo.

Jak has given me a new way to approach this, so I'm going to give her suggestions a try.

Thanks for your help!

Kelly

I started out following Jak's tip , I continued with a lot of cloning (lighten and darken)...I made some curves adjustments, (adding a bit more depth), ...and this is what I came out with....(still a big disaster area, but a bit clearer.... )

P.S.....I worked on him only ....I left the rest untouched!

Good Luck Kelly!

Ok, you guys roped me into it. Here's mine. I split channels and cloned and blurred, and painted, and had about four layers.

You cry that easy. Look, I don't know anything about them either, I just did a split to cymk and kept the best one and put it in my layer stack, worked on them one at a time to get the best result, did a bit of cloning and painting, adjusted the sliders. and done. I could have spent more time but........................
