Skin texture and tones

Hey everyone,
I work for an architectural/interior photographer and I do his ps work. I want to expand my skills and get into retouching fashion and portraits. I know that type of retouching is a lot different from the type of retouching i use. I do a lot of clonning and cutting and pasting. Is there any tips that you can give me smoothing out the skin without loosing texture and getting accurate skin tonnes.

Thanks

Re: Skin texture and tones

Hi Dave...

Welcome to RP.

If your objective is to soften wrinkles a bit, here's something to try...
* Duplicate Background
* Apply Noise > Dust & Scratches [blur it quite a bit] to the duplicated layer and change the layer blend mode from Normal to Lighten
* Layer > Add layer mask > Hide all (black mask)
* Choose Brush tool, turn on airbrush setting, Opacity ~25%, Flow ~ 35%
* Foreground color = white

Airbrushing white on the black layer mask over wrinkled skin areas should hide them w/o too much texture loss.

Is this more or less where you wanted to go? There are other methods for more severe wrinkle surgery.
