removing shine on forehead and nose

Hello Everyone,

Could you help me out with this picture?
I forgot to bring any powder when i had to make this shot and i like to retouch the shining nose and forehead. What is the best (most professional) way to do this?

Thank very much,

Frank

Just had a v.quick go with this one.

New layer, clone using a Soft Brush at about 10% opacity. Adjust layer opacity to fine tune.

Depends on size of image, and how close you need to get as to whether this is a suitable technique, as sometimes texture loss is noticeable if you're a bit heavy handed.

Re: removing shine on forehead and nose

Created a New Layer, sampled darker but near areas of the skin, set the blending of the new layer to multiply and using a low opacity brush slowly started removing the shine. When finished, reduced the opacity of the multiply layer by approx 25% as it seems you always overdo it a bit to start off with.

Feathered selection of forhead and nose.
Selective color AJ on the Whites adding magenta and yellow and beefing up the blacks (0,22,30,10 Abosolute). Layer set to normal, reduce opacity to taste. Touch up with low opacity white brush on mask.

Re: removing shine on forehead and nose

just add a curve on top, darken the quater tones a bit and put it in darken mode....then just take like a 20% opacity brush and gradually mask it in in the areas you want to tone down. this way you have total control later on with the adjustment layer.

maybe later on you'll say hey, i needed that shine to give me more contrast, then you can tone down your curve. no damage done.

Re: removing shine on forehead and nose

Using the Select>Color Range feature, select the highlight areas and then in a new layer, after selecting a medium skin tone in the foreground, Edit>Fill>Foreground Color. Change the blend mode to multiply and reduce opacity.

Easy peasy. No painting involved.

Re: removing shine on forehead and nose

The funny thing was that I didn't really know what steps to take before I tried the fix, but I found when I verbalized step by step what should happen, what I should do in Photoshop just sort of came to me. It's a little watershed moment so I really appreciate the positive feedback.

Thanks!
