Nedd a fix for a Sweaty Face

Sorry, your image is to small to work with. If you are using Photoshop, try using the patch tool. I think you will get the results you are after.

Try using a soft brush set to about 30% opacity, and set to darken. Clone from the neighboring areas to the hot spots. Take your time and don't work to fast.

Re: Nedd a fix for a Sweaty Face

As indicated the picture is too small to accomplish much. I did enlarge the image a little and then used the clone tool and healing brush. Ran the picture through a third party airbrush filter and adjusted the color using levels. I think this will give you a little idea of what you want to do. Reduced picture size back to the approximate original size.

Thanks for the advice. Can you tell what the name of the 3rd party filter you used, and if you would recommend buying it

Here's my attempt to fix this, using the method that I listed above. I enlarged the photo to do the work, and then reduced it back down to the original size.

Re: Nedd a fix for a Sweaty Face

The 3rd party filter is the Digital Gem Airbrush. Here is the URL, and they do have a trial download so you can judge the filter for yourself.

I see that Dave Cox, in the post above this one, produced a picture without the use of a third party filter. I only do this type of thing as a hobby. The filter is handy for a quick effect.
