Another thing to check is the opacity/fill settings for the brush you ar using, if set too low it would take a lot of brush strokes to see anything, possibly.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts on what might be wrong with using the mask function. I just can not figure out why it would not work with that try. Ken I have used the mask tutorial written by Vikki and that is how I first heard about them. I started over on my picture and it worked and did help but did not give the retouch result I desired.

I suspect the whole problem may be the group step, I am not very familiar with doing that and was following a tutorial. I might have missed a step or something.

This post is to say thank you yo everyone who took the time to help. Even though I did not get this one figured out I learned a lot via all the information posted.

I think I will post the image I wish to restore, I can not post the whole picture of my granddaughter , she asked me not to, so I need to respect that, but I can post a portion of her complection that I am trying to retouch. It is small file but maybe you cansee what I am trying to work on.Maybe someone can suggest another way to help get a nice natural look to her face. Neb

I am going to look in the search section for a retouch tutorial.

Hi Neb.

I used Rô’s Degrunge Tutorial

http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=213

(I did it the Long way – There is a quick Way in the Tutorial)

I have attached my layers with the numbers I used

Hope this helps.

Ken

Hi Neb.

Thanks for the PM’s
Here are three more ways to do the same thing

Picture 1
Paint

1) create a blank layer above the picture
2) Sample a colour next to the blemish
3) paint with a soft brush at low opacity over the blemishes
I used a brush size of 27 set at 40% opacity to paint over the blemishes and then reduced the opacity further to blend in
4) Add noise to match picture - Filter > Noise > Add Noise – Amount = 1
Nancy made a tutorial here
http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=191


Picture 2
Use the Healing tool

1) Duplicate the picture
2) Use the Healing tool to repair the blemishes
There is a tutorial here
http://www.arraich.com/ref/aatool_healBrush6.htm

Method 3)
Use the Spot Healing tool

Is PSCS there is a new Spot Healing tool (I don’t have this in PS7)
I can’t tell you how to use this but it should do the job.
You will need to read the help files


Hope these help

Ken
