Please help me retouch a bit

I've tried a few times and can't get it right...

Please remove the double chin and make the face a bit slimmer (not too much, and if the body needs to be slimmed a TEENY bit to match the face that's fine) and make the green of the eyes brighter(again, not too much).

Thanks in advance!

A beautiful photo. Why bother to adjust at all?

Used dodge and burn to blend the dark D chin line. Used a 50% grey filled layer, then panted at low opacity (op 12 flo 15) with white (dodge) and black (burn). This allows you to dodge and burn non destructively.

Next time post a bigger picture, or post a small one here and a link to a bigger one off site.

I agree with albatross, not much if any doubble chin.

I did 2, one to show just the D chin removal and the other with further shadow removal.

Hope it helps,

Re: Please help me retouch a bit

psfan, welcome to RetouchPRO

One thread is more than enough to accommodate one picture..

What software are you using to try and get it right?

What have you tried to improve the picture?

Have you tried to retouch a photo like this before?

Do you want someone to do it for you or learn how to fix it yourself?

FAQ: Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.

That being said.... I find it hard to not play with such a pretty face... Soooo,

Click on the First Gif and wait a few seconds and it will change (for a before/after)...
the second is a larger JPG version

As you can see... you can post a fairly large picture which is under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)
This may also help some... How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads?(Click here)
