Here's a short tutorial with photos and a dodge/burn layer shown from Digital Grin (while you're waiting for Godmother's tutorial).

Re: Dodge and Burn to Smooth Skin?

CJ..... thank you so much for another great link !!! You've given some really different and interesting links ..... I had to settle down and pay attention to the part about a curve adjustment layer and setting midpoints in the color channels but.... I think I've got it and can't wait to try this.....

In Photoshop 7, you add a blank layer, select that layer, choose Edit --> Fill, a box pops up that lets you choose what you want to Fill that layer with -- includes Foreground color, Background color, Black, White, AND 50% gray -- choose the 50% gray and set the layer blending mode for that layer to Overlay -- it will look like the layer is invisible when set to Overlay.

Overlay is much stronger than soft light, playing tonght in hard light tone, even stronger relationship

Patience is a gift, not a reward
