Merry Christmas to All!

I added a new Learning Gallery today to my site:

http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/...-softening.htm

It demonstrates how to soften skin with a pair of layers: one set to Darken blend and the other to Lighten blend. It also has tips for removing wrinkles, crows' feet, bags under eyes, glare on teeth, etc. Lots of interesting tips for retouching portraits.

Enjoy!

Cheers,

Mitch

I'm having touble posting this...

Have you tried any of the grain removal filters? They're pretty good.
If your friend says he's using channels, then he's probably using a combination of techniques using not only channels (as masks), but channel modes. If you mention the LAB channels he'll probably tell you what he's been doing.

polished skin

I use a plug-in from Kodak: "Digital Gem Airbrush Professional 2.0"
Before using the filter make a feathered selection of the skin.
There is a try-out download here http://www.asf.com
See the attachement (low res.)

Hi everyone

Just wanted to thank you all for the great discussion here. I'm learning heaps from this one thread. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm a newbie to this world, and I am also very very lucky to have a model to practise on whenever I like - my best friend is a model and more than willing to help me out. My father is also a professional photographer and has a taste for 'poxy' pictures, as he calls them - rough and raw. He also gave me permission to work on any of his pictures, and use them as if they are my own, so along with my amateur pics I get some 'real' pictures to play with too.

I'm having a great Sunday afternoon playing around with sad friends lovely face, thanks to all the wonderful tips and links here.

Today I discovered the green channel. Loving it already!

So thank you all for deciding to discuss this
