my intention is clear... to gain knowledge, not to gain enemy. i hope i made my self clear. peace! ^_^
I wish to never get to know you in person. You're way too aggressive.

Re: i need a workflow for softening skin

and to gain knowledge... one must first LISTEN to those around you who are wiser than yourself.

You may very well be an IT professional, but it seems you have much to learn about good manners when asking for help.

We don't HAVE to reply to your post, we all do so because we want to help and wish to share our knowledge with you and everyone else who reads this post.

Here is my amazing action: http://adobe.rognemedia.no/Band%20Stop.atn (it will stop and ask you for the filter settings, and you can see your image preview while it does this so it is easy to get it right).

Note that this works for removing low-frequency details, and doesn't work well for removing wrinkles etc. For that you should use other techniques.

My workflow usually goes something like this:
0. Duplicate and Liquify body into supermodel-shape
1. New layer above the skin. Use clone stamp and healing brush to clean up.
2. Run Photoshop Action (will create a new layer above current layer). Paint in the mask where i want the filter to affect the skin (be careful around edges).
4. Possbily more cloning/healing.
5. Correcting color using Curves-layers (with masks usually just painted with a soft brush).

(i try to keep everything in layers so it is easy for me to go back "down" in the layers and tweak)
Thank you so much for the Action. It's really helpful.
