Removing bags/wrinkles under the eyes

Can someone explain or point me in the direction of a tutorial/video that will show me the professional way to reduce and or remove wrinkles and bags under the eyes? All of the techniques I have found so far appear to be rather destructive in my way of thinking :-(

I forgot to mention that I am very much a newbie to retouching so a step by step idiots guide would be appreciated

Regards Colin

Colin, that's a little like saying you would like a step by step guide to perform an organ transplant but you are a newbie to the medical field. There area great many different techniques and a vast array of tools that can be used to reduce / remove wrinkles and bags. A lot depends upon the image. I suggest that you attach an image or part of an image which is representative of the problem area. That way members can offer you suggestions most appropriate for that image.
Regards, Murray

Re: Removing bags/wrinkles under the eyes

There isn't a generic way to do this that applies in every situation. The one thing that does apply is that if you want it to look natural, you'll need to ensure that you maintain some of the original shape even after lightening the density. If you're new to this stuff the best advice I can give is not to rely on the clone/healing tools for anything larger than a few pixels. That alone would save you from one of the most common pitfalls in learning photoshop.

You get the most control with Dodge and Burn techniques, as you can keep every wrinkle but can decide how much it will show.

You can find Lynda.com for portrait retouch video. It's helpful
