easy - dont fill it with grey You can paint on an transparent layer in black and white

oh i found out i filled it with a darker grey than 50. thats way.

i used this technique now 1st time. and i can say, wow, very good and fast.

i use to use the dodge and burn mostly but it taskes time and it makes the black a bit light always

buy the way, which blending method is equivalent to the healing brush?
sometimes i cut out skin on nice places and put the pores then on ugly skin places. i only want to blend the pores into. still figuring out how is best and fast...

shellby if you use lens blur or lets say better using "surface blur", which parameters do you use? i dont get it. do you prefer smaller numbers or does the number depend on the image size? i have a raw file of 50MB, 38cm, 300 dpi

Depens on image size

Low resolution images need less blur

High res large images need more

Just keep an eye on the preview and see what looks best.

Blur on another layer, keep the original underneath it - that way to can lower opacity on the blurred layer to lessen the effect.
