meditom, welcome to RetouchPRO,

That came out fine! (OK, yes, slightly exaggerated - but you already know that).

Something that does cause a strange impression - and nothing to do with the skin - is the eyes.
Somehow iris and pupil seem a little out of shape. The original also shows this strangeness but as you have enhanced the eyes, it calls more attention.

Look forward to seeing more of your work.

byro, what technique did you use, posting your latest example?
thats very good. i would have needed that for skin today.
i had to clone the skin by big brush as no blur was good enough for that kind of skin, very difficult. sometimes i cant get rid of the blotches, they just get blurred. then i always use the clone stamp. this makes it also blur but at least the area looks even and plain like yours. the skin i did today was a nubian looking woman, like dark blotchy skin.

i wish for my example i had known a better way. its way to blurry, though hipassed, but i was running out of time.

by the way: color profile, is there any recommended RGB one?
i usually use ECI-RGB as it is good for skin tones, sometimes Adobe-RGB when no skin is there at all. yu?

Just the normal de-Grunge trick.

I am finishing a plug-in to automate the trick somewhat, as well as masking the edges.

In this case (atteached) I applied the trick twice, first radii 6 and 2, then radii 12 and 4.

i wonder if there are plugins out there who utilize this "blur - highpass " feature.
as skin repair is a basic and everyday need, isnt it?

i looked at kodak, they have ASF tools.

http://www.asf.com/

are they any good?

I'm not sure an action would save you much time at all, everything in the action would have to bring up the dialog box for adjustments anyway.

OK, here's the very, very beginner quesion: Where is the High Pass for the quick de-grunge in PS6?

Can't be certain for PS6, but in PS7.0 you find it at Filter>Other>High Pass
