retouch no blur or healing brush

is it possible to get really good looking skin without using a healing brush or a blur and mask? like 'magazine makeup ad' skin? i mean, if the model didnt have very good skin to begin with, what would professionals do?

Re: retouch no blur or healing brush

search the boards for "DODGE AND BURN" or "D&G"

Can't we just make a sticky post in all caps: "PERFECT SKIN HERE"?

at least half of all posts here are the exact same ones, people asking again and again the same question. No offense Mileeeeeeeenaaaa.

Picture this scenario:

I hand you a piece of paper and say "show me your best artwork."
"With what?" you ask.... "Only this bar of soap," I reply.

Now ask yourself if you should get a tablet

DJSoulglo means "D&B"

The easiest and most effective method in my opinion, is D&B using a 50% gray layer set to Soft Light blending mode... I'd suggest researching this. You will find it to be pretty time consuming so I'd only recommend it if you are serious about retouching.

Best of luck mileeeeeeenaaaa!

It might depend on how creative you are!
Don Marco was handed a box of Crayons!
- Mr. Crayola-part 1 (4min)

- Mr.Crayola - part2 (5min)

So it just might depend on your capabilities and knowledge of the tools at hand!

Re: retouch no blur or healing brush

From someone who is completely new to this site. When you get the same questions over and over, generally, it is from someone new who is seeking help from those who are more knowledgeable. But nooooo, we get the smartass comments from those who are tired, old, bloated, those who have lost their..."cool". For those who extend the knowledge, I salute you. May the Puna buds from heaven watch over you.
