Able to follow you pretty much to this point, but then I lost you.
Do the patch tool and copying layers until it looks right. Then merge as necessary to get a single layer containing your modified image. Take your original image and put this (modified) layer on top of it. Adjust the opacity of the modified layer to about 80% so that you get a hint of the original picture (with shine) showing through. This should stop the retouched image looking too "flat" if it has a tendency to do so.

Leah, could you explain what the patch tool does for someone who has never seen PS CS?

I usually use a duplicate of the original in multiply blend mode (several merged if necessary), then add a hide all mask to the multiply layer and then use a low opacity airbrush to show the mask. The trick here is to get the right amounts of white and black airbrush for the image to look believable.

Unfortunately, this does not work because of the amount of pore detail brought out by the flash. What I first did was duplicate the layer, then blurred the duplicate (GB, r=6). I added a hide all mask to the blurred layer, then painted the blur back with a low opacity white brush to remove the pore detail. (This removed quite a bit of the flash highlights. Probably with a higher GB radius you could remove more.) I then duplicated all layers into a new one and removed some more highlights with the clone tool.

It's in PS7, doesn't require CS (I know you have PSP yourself, but just clarifying for the benefit of other readers).

Basically it's like the Healing brush (it's in the same slot on the toolbar). Both of these “look” at the texture, color, and luminosity of the source area separately, then merge the texture from the sample area into the color and luminosity of the destination area. With the Patch tool, rather than using a "brush" you make a selection (with the Patch tool itself or any selection tool), drag the selected area with the Patch tool, and when you releasing the mouse the healing technology (presumably the same algorithms as the Healing brush) makes the repair. You can change the settings so that you select the area to be repaired and drag it onto the sample area (I almost always use it that way round), so that you select the sample area and drag it onto the area to be repaired, or with a "pattern" setting (I've actually temporarily forgotten what that one is used for).

...here is something else to try for minimizing 'shiny spots':
  • Create a new Empty Layer (Blending > Darken)
  • Pick a Soft Brush (Opacity > 30%)
  • Alt + click on an area very close to the 'Shiny Spot'
  • Carefully paint over the 'Shiny Spot'
  • Add just a bit of noise.
Flora,

SueAnne
