Yeah- it seems to be an affect of how I saved it.
I actually followed your {FlexManta's) instructions in an earlier post of this thread- but I may have (read probably)- made a mistake somewhere

Yeah, the photo is too big, and in order to make it 100Kb you had to compress it too much. You can start by making it around 1000px wide.


How did you retouch the skin, cause it has no texture.

Hello again- layers of blur with layers of high pass sharpen
various layers with different settings of each adjustment
adjusted the opacity of the layers
I probably did that quite a few times- then flattened
brought back my cloned/healed only -duped that as a layer- used for another hi-pass sharpen
I can't even say how many times I did that
Got it looking pretty good (at least to myself)- then did the sculpting/liquify on a dup layer

For me it's it is neat. I like the natural looks, texture and color of the skin. Necessary skin details are intact.

...now there's ur problem! There is no reason to use blur on skin. Ever! Apart from if you like to get your frequency split through "apply image" instead of using the regular crappy high pass filter (which will screw up your pure blacks and whites).



Blur is for cheap retouchers.
