Bully when dodging and burning use a soft brush tip
also use very low opacity setting like 2 or 3
make sure of which area your dodging or burning ,shadows midtones or highlights
I did just the face on this photo hope you like it

Lasa, is there any chance at all you could expand on your technique a bit more. That is a great result and want to try and get that also. Just not sure what brushes, healing, burnng on what layers etc.

Woul dbe great if you could add a little more detail to that post you put.

Thanks heaps.

S.

Re: Need help creating "flawless" skin (glamour)

Mafx, I don't know how much more I can add...
Where are you having problems?
When cloning I rarely have the cloning brush at 100% it just to strong so I clone at 60-70% and go over the same spot if it needs to be darker.
Same with the healing tools..it can sometime be to strong so I use the fade option. (EDIT/FADE) It only works immediately after an event..
ctrl+alt+tilde, (tilde is the key above the tab on most keyboards)copied/paste. then smart blurred (smart blur is under the blur filters)...again fade back is exactly that. ctrl+alt+tilde It makes a light layer which when blurred smooths out skin nicely.
Does this help?

Re: Need help creating "flawless" skin (glamour)

so do you just work on one copy of the original layer? When you fade back you just do it at 100% opacity and normal mode?

Lastly With the amount of blur and threshold, what should I be looking for at that stage.. just a subtle blur and tinkering with the settings until I see the skin smooth out sort of thing.

Just trying to find the right technique for this sort of stuff.

I appreciate the help.

Steven

Re: Need help creating "flawless" skin (glamour)

Nothing works 100% on all pictures but at least it "can" gives you a starting point.
I normally duplicate the original layer (then turn off the original background) and simply work off the copied layer.
With regards to the Smart blur I've been using radius 2-3, threshold 25% it normally over-does-it so I throddle back with the "fade option". I sometimes set the "ctrl+alt+tilde" layer to multiply and lower opacity a tad (just play around with all of it)

Hope it helps,

Lasa
