Help with goosebumps on skin

Hello Guys !

This is my first post on this forum, so first I want to say HELLO to all of you.
My name is Martin and I ran into a problem... goosebumps.
As you can see in the attached photo I've got plenty of them (High RES link below)
I have tried to remove them with D & B, but this didn't work I always got red spots. I guess cause there is not much information in those parts so there is nothing to dodge or burn from. I would greatly appreciate any help from you or just pushing me into the right direction.

Thank you very much in advance.

Cheers,

Martin.

Re: Help with goosebumps on skin

Depending on the method you are using for D&B you are likely to get some color shift. What most people do in that case is to add a blank layer set to color blend mode and paint over those areas where the color has shifted by sampling adjacent good color. Adjust the opacity of the layer to tweak the overall effect.
Regards, Murray

You could also remove them as you would any blemish - clone stamp and healing brush tool plus d&b... and finish off as with Murray's suggestions . .

Talking Re: Help with goosebumps on skin

Well what works sometimes is to copy the layer
Then use G blur at about 50 and screen blending mode
In this case I copied that layer and still used screen blending mode
I copied that layer again and this time used multiply as the blending mode
I used color samplers to make the luminosity about equal. In this case I dialed down the opacity of the top /multiply layer some.

The I selected the three copied layers and use make group from layers command and added a layer mask to the group.

Finally I painted the mask.

If I recall I got this Idea from Katrin Eisman's book.

duplicate the layer you are trying to D+B on set it to Luminosity and then D+B on that layer. You won't get red spots.

Re: Help with goosebumps on skin

Maybe because I'm old, I tend to use old remedies.

Duplicated the working layer twice. The original working layer is not used but is there for backup. Click on the icon that resembles an eye ball to turn off your top layer so that you are able to see the middle layer.
Select the middle layer, apply a median blur, (filter>noise>median.) Watch the image as you apply the median and stop when you no longer see the goosebumps.(this crop was about 8) Don't overdo it.
Apply some grain (filter>texture>grain) (this crop was: intensity at 14, contrast at 50 and grain type soft.)

Back to the top layer and click on the eye to turn the layer back on.
apply a mask to this top layer by clicking the mask icon at the bottom of the layer palette (square with circle in center) Now, paint away the goosebumps as needed using black.

If it is to smooth, you might want to do a little adjustment on the mask(lighten it) using levels or curves to bring a bit of the original texture back.

I used something similar, just without utilizing smart objects.
