removing oily, facial shine

Any suggestions for how to do this? Have adolescent daughter and this shows up a lot. Find that the clone stamp often leaves splotchy results, or I think what I've seen referred to here as a "clone trail." If I fiddle with the opacity, it's better. Not nuts about the healing brush because if you get close to any hair, it picks up that color.

Using Photoshop CS.

You can try selecting a larger area of skin, copying to a new layer (Ctrl-J), moving over the shine area, adjust levels to get an approximate match in tone, then add a "Hide All" mask and brush in with a soft low-opacity brush over the shiny area. This sometimes works, anyway.

It always helps if we can see the image.
However, try this: Use the clone tool to clean up the areas, especially close to the hair. Then use the healing brush to blend everything (clean up tracks) and bring the original texture back in to that area (staying clear of the hair line).

Hi CyndieM,

Welcome to RP!

...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.

I used the Patch tool to get most of the shine (second picture).
Then used the copy and move layers technique described in my earlier post to fix the remaining little areas around the hairline and eyes (third picture).
Finally merged layers and put a copy of the merged image at 80% opacity over the original image. That allows just a very small amount of shine to show through and creates a more natural appearance (first picture).

[Edited because I couldn't get the pictures to load in the order I wanted, so changed the description of which picture was which instead]

Your picture uploaded perfectly!!

...here is what I managed to do...

(I also used 'Selective Colors' to correct the skin tone a bit....)


Leah,

I love the first one of your pictures....Was that done with the Patch Tool only?

Leah & Flora

Your finished results are terrific. I will have to play with this. I guess I have to learn to use the patch tool!

Flora, how did you do the selective color? Add more yellow? My daughter's skin has a tendency to have a red cast. She will often use a yellow-toned powder to counter-act that, so it seems natural that you would have added yellow.

Thanks! - No, like I said I couldn't get the images to load in the right order. So the first picture is patch tool plus copying extra skin over, all reduced to 80% opacity, the second picture is the patch tool alone (so still showing shine round the hair and eyes), and the third picture is patch tool plus copying extra skin over, but at 100% opacity so it looks a bit too 'flat' for my personal taste.

Leah: Having trouble following your steps

Do you think you could run this through here again, a bit more "step-by-step."

"Finally merged layers and put a copy of the merged image at 80% opacity over the original image."

Able to follow you pretty much to this point, but then I lost you.
