Vikki,

If that's not how he did it, it is pretty close!

I made a mask with a 10-20% opacity black brush and painted back the original layer and did a side-by-side look at the images and it looked pretty good.

Peach Fuzz...

Quote:
Never heard that term before LOL

I am guessing you mean hair?
Yep. It's an Americanism, and is a kind term that usually refers to the soft, vellus hair that women (and children) have on their faces...like the down, on a peach. Sometimes it's used in a slightly more derogatory and humorous way, to refer to the beginnings of a young man's beard...

I once read something from a photographer that had worked with Marilyn Monroe repeatedly, and he said that she had a "fuzzy" face--and the hair would catch the light, when he photographed, her, making her seem as if she was glowing...

PanPan, if you want to have the .swf file instead of a screen shot, IE downloads a copy of it to your Documents and Settings> User Name (yours)>Local Settings> Temporary Internet Files. This image is called retouch-alina.swf Best Rgds, MM

On a side note I really like the way the show the before and after, very original and effective method.

Yeah I like it

I loved it too. I have asked a friend who does web design if this is done in Flash and if he has any idea how to do it.

Thank you, MisterMonday. I use Firefox, but I did find the file (retouche-skin[1].swf is the one under discussion). However, I can not extract either the before or the after images from the shockwave file.

You can do it in Flash. I "invented" something similar a while ago, but I can't remember any specifics, nor do I have the file, since I wrote it on my dad's computer. I might be able to dig it up when I go and visit over Xmas.

Basically, I followed a simple tutorial showing how you can make a shape follow the mouse cursor. In this case that would be a rectangle the size of the pic. I turned the shape into a mask that reveals the bottom layer, so wherever you dragged the shape, you could see the enhanced image layer. I'm not entirely sure how you would prevent the shape from moving up and down as opposed to just sideways though.
