Re: What is the current skin trend?

Lately, i've seen a lot of using the skin in the photo as a source, running a dust&scratches, then running that as a lighten layer. It almost turns the pores/hairs white. Either that, or some simple noise, (same "lighten" layer). I've noticed it in some sectors of fashion where realistic skin is not of upmost priority.

MrRyan,

WOW, very nice. That technique makes very quick work of blemishes and more importantly the small hairs that take so long to heal/clone out otherwise.

I instantly put this into an action...

Many thanks,
-Keven

Igot2Pman,

It takes a little work to figure out levels/opacities/pixel sizes etc per image, but on a nice sharp image, it does work quite nicely. I'm glad i you like the technique friendo!

Re: What is the current skin trend?

I've got a number of odd processes I've developed for certain aesthetic looks on images. Sometimes when I'm slow at work, I'll pop open an image, and experiment for awhile, trying CRAZY stuff just to see what will happen.
One day, while working on a photo of one of our models, i developed the PERFECT technique to simulate FISH SCALES. I don't know when I'll EVER need that, (and I'm not sure if I could remember it again), but it's nice to have it on back-burner i guess. Haha!

Here is what made me go WOW... Just an example of what this can do...It did all that in seconds... that used to take me hours to clone/heal that.

I hear ya Ryan, I too just fiddle around with doing diffrent things to make something totaly diffrent. What I found was that makeing an action of it will keep it forever (if you dont loose it). Then you can save it to a disk. I already made this into an action. And yes, it works better with sharp pictures.
