I have been recently browsing other retoucher's portfolio's which I loved and I'm wondering how they did some kind of things. I have a few examples. Hope someone is kind to help me, I would appreciate it a lot!

How did the make the freckles pop so much?
This is about getting the freckles of the left side of the first link more like those in the second link.

The freckles reside mostly in the blue channel, so use channel mixer in luminosity mode to blend the blue into the red & green channels. Mask to the areas of skin you wish to affect.

Glad I'm not the only one that thought the retouching was over-the-top.

It's like some computer generated sandpaper. Tell you what, if you find that attractive, it's your fault entirely if you wake up one morning with fang holes in your neck.

These are done with filters and does not look like quality dodge and burn at all.

They should consider changing the name of this thread to "Why do they do this (skin/freckles/pores)?

#1 was Clarity first, then Softened the highlights later.
#2 was HighPass and LowPass. The LowPass was overblurred.
#3 was Gaussian Blur to the skin only.
#4 was HiPass and Lowpass. He should have fixed the eyelashes. Ruined a nice image.
#5 was Potraiture software. Of course, that is likely how the first 4 were done too.
