Re: Help remove my double chin?

Hi todye4_24,

welcome to RetouchPRO!!!
This is a teaching Forum where, whenever possible, we help by showing even step-by-step how we fixed or minimized problems in pictures... meaning ... you try and if you get stuck we help.

If you are not into image retouching/restoring yourself but you'd like to have a picture fixed you can post it in our Classifieds Forum. Depending on the job, you might get it for free anyway.

That said, I had a go at your picture ... I'm more a restorer than a retoucher so, trying to keep it as natural as possible and you looking like yourself, here is what I came up with ..

Re: Help remove my double chin?

Hi Flora! Thanks so much for the info and taking a stab at the photo! I use to have a workshop for photoshopping on my computer but deleted everything because the moment I opened it and tried using it I got lost and had no idea! Anyways, I am in the process of getting the program again and once I have it up and running I will most definitely be trying to learn how to do it...so any tips on A-How-To Do-It basis would be lovely! Thanks so much again for trying to help!

Re: Help remove my double chin?

Okay so I finally got it running! Yay me...lol Anyways here is a picture of what I did! I only used the liquify feature as I have no clue what else I can do? I would like to learn how to add make-up or color to my face if anyone can assist me, that would be wonderful. Also if anyone can give me any pointers on what else I may be able to do to maybe make it a little better! Here is the pic, please, tell me what you think!

Re: Help remove my double chin?

Hi again,

sorry for my delay in reacting...

First of all ... Very well done!!!! The Liquify filter isn't the easiest to use and you mastered it really well!!!

The one thing you should be careful is your chin .... which has become shorter and square ...

Re: Help remove my double chin?

Thank-you so much Flora! And yes, I agree with you about the chin becoming shorter and more square...I would love to fix it up but I have no idea what else I can do?! I keep playing with the workshop but it is quite hard! BTW, make-up might not be your cup of tea but you did a wonderful job! So I'm wondering if you can give me any pointers with which tools I should be playing around with to learn? Please and thank-you! Oh and I would also like to apologize for not responding until now...I reformatted my whole computer, wiped it clean and started fresh so I think my mail from retouch was being read as Spam...I had to physically go through all my spam mail to find what was and wasn't!!

I used several blank layers as described in this Tutorial ( just scroll down the page to the BLANK/EMPTY LAYERS SET TO.... part.)

As I already said, I have no real experience in 'beauty retouch' but, as I usually do for restorations, I prefer adding several layers with subtle changes (playing with the Layer's Opacity) rather than 'splashing' everything on one single layer.
