Re: Best "quick and dirty" technique for skin?

My workflow after basic clean up with healing brush and clone tool is: Merge layers together take a copy. On the copy run a gaussian blur, so that things a way blurry. Don`t click Ok ,but remember the amount and be sure it could be divided by three. Then click cancel and go and run a highpass on this layer with the GB amount. Click *OK. Then run a GB on the same layer that are 1/3 of the HP value. Click ok, and invert the layer, set layer mode to linear light. Click on the fx button and go into blending options. Go on white "this layer slider" hold alt(pc) so it splits and drag it almost all the way to the left. Go then on the underlying layer to the same with the black split it drag it almost on the right side. Click ok . Add a layer mask and paint on the effect
