Re: Shine/oil face

Sonikot, this is my technique
Steps I took:
1- Duplicated the original photo to a new layer
2- Used patch tool to remove oil/shine areas and some defects in the skin.
3- Added a new clear layer to apply the Healing Brush tool
4- Merged all layers (except the original) to a new layer to blur out the skin.
5- Added surface blur to this new layer and masked it (BLACK)
6- With the black masked selected, I selected a brush (white) with an opacity of 20% and started painting in the new blured skin. And that is how you get the skin smooth.
7- As an optional step, I tried to unify the skin color by creating a new layer, selecting the paint brush, sampling a color from the skin, and started to paint the whole skin with a layer blending type set to normal. Then I changed to opacity of the layer to be around 10% which added (a digital foundation) to the skin.
8- Duplicated the original layer (original photo) and added it to the top. Change its opacity to 10% or 5% to get some texture form the original photo to avoid the “Plastic Look”.
That is it
ENJOY

Re: Shine/oil face

hey thanks a great deal.

i couldn't figure out these steps possibly a bit more detail?

5- Added surface blur to this new layer and masked it (BLACK)
6- With the black masked selected, I selected a brush (white) with an opacity of 20% and started painting in the new blured skin. And that is how you get the skin smooth.

thanks in advanced

Re: Shine/oil face

Sonikot
make a copy of all layers and place it on top (alt+ctrl+shift+E)
go to filters --> blur --> Surface blur
after bluring the image go to layer --> layer mask --> hide all
Now you have a layer masked with black
With the black masked selected, select a brush (white) with an opacity of 10% to 20% depending on image dimensions and start painting in the new blured skin
That is all
