remove doublechin challenge

Hi!
I shot this photo as a business portrait for a friend. I tried to remove the chin, but I don´t know how!

Also I think the skin could look a little healthier. I know it should not look like a glossy magazine look, since it should be a business portrait - but to my mind she would be glad if it would look a little better.

Please feel free to post your recommendations and I´ll be happy for your info!

cheers,
Bud

Re: remove doublechin challenge

Hi Budiono:

Welcome to the this forum.

You need something like this (more or less)? You have compressed the pic a lot ("0" quality jpeg compresión) and is so, so, so damaged.

I dont know your photoshop level. For the chin I think is enough if you dodge the shadow to match the color of the neck. For the rest, dodge carving the shadows or, if it´s a lot of work, you can use any of the portraits plugins, not the best results but faster and quicker. It depends the money you will earn with the job.

I have done just a little cause the pic is so damaged.

Re: remove doublechin challenge

I agree with JavierT about the compressed quality, I think u went 2 far with that, the quality really has suffered. Besides all that, if u are interesed check out this tutorial, http://www.graphics.com/modules.php?...page&artid=179 hope that it helps.

I did a little to kinnda show u the results u can get from using liquify.
good luck

Had a go at it using Photoshop CS ... Liquify filter, smudge painting and some light brush work. Balanced the colors with curves and selective coloring. Not a bad result. If I were a better artist it would be perfect.

Re: remove doublechin challenge

Here's my try. I did some cloning and coloring over the double chin, and then liquify. Also liquify on the face to slim it some. Softened it up the skin some and lightened the hair. Changed the skin tone too, but...that could be better.
