Re: need your help - skin retouching
Hi! It seems like you have clone/stamped with a very soft cloning or healing tool, or you have actually D&B on a normal blend layer. Either way the texture is gone in the areas you are talking of. I am no pro so others may have even bether solutions, but personally I would have fixed this with split frequency in some way.
You have obviously worked on the areas suggesting that they were not "pretty" in the original.
So depending on the original I would either:
A 1. make a split frequency from the original then
2. copy the HIGH layer and put it on top
3. Mask this with a black mask and selectivly paint back with white brush.
4. Adjust opacity
B 1. make a split frequency from where you are (if the original texture was
2. clone stamp (85-100 hard) on HIGH layer from nearby texture (but try to
avoid repetetive patterns
On Camera left of the mouth you have a lot of the same thing going on, but here you have also changed the underlying tone. Here you could either use the original LOW layer, or put a normal or color blend layer between HIGH and LOW, sample nearby good color and paint away.
Search here on the forum or google "split frequency action" and you should have no trouble finding one. Just make sure its not too old or it will be using the less accurate Highpass filter rather than aply image for the high layer.
Hope this helps
