Doug I tried your technique and it really worked. After removing the dark circles I did not like her left eye at all. So copied her right eye flipped it and used curves to make it slightly lighter then the other, since that side has more sunlight on it. I erased everything around the copy and left just the eye. Did the same with her eyebrow. I also painted the bottom half of her face with the white just to lighten it a bit. I slill have to make a few minor adjustments to it, but I was so excited I had to post a copy. Now I just have to give her a nose job and I'm almost done. That should be fun, since this is the only picture of the woman and I have no idea what the nose looked like. Thank you.
