Help removing face shine.

I have been playing around with the attached picture on Photoshop for a while. I have been attempting to remove the shine to no avail. I leave dark or light spots instead. I would also like to remove the arm from behind my head. If there is anyone who would like to practice their skills and fix this I would appreciate it!

Thank you!

Re: Help removing face shine.

Hi there

I just used basic techniques...I used the clone tool set to the darken mode and an opacity of 28% and slowly darkened the blown areas.

Then made a selection and filled the background with black..and masked as needed.

Then a little tone correction to my liking anyway.

There's a plug-in designed specifically for removing facial glare that makes quick work of it: ShineOff.

Re: Help removing face shine.

I think I removed the wrong arm, but I'm on my laptop and not at the studio. I just did a mild retouch on shine, avoiding a model-makeover which makes you look like someone else generally.

Re: Help removing face shine.

I thought I I would do one too. I like the heal or clone brush set to darken mode for this kind of repair. I don't think you need a plugin for this kind of thing.

Re: Help removing face shine.

I usually create a blank layer and set it to darken. I sample a color near the shine, and paint over the shine, resampling as needed. Then I lower the layer opacity to about 10-25%, and repeat on areas with more shine as needed. I found if I go over 25% it gets too plastic-y. I like painting better than cloning because I don't need to be worry about running into a sampled area that I shouldn't be using, and I like doing it on it's own layer so I can go back and adjust it later if it needs it.
