I did a little bit. I only post on stuff like this if I want to show you can make progress with very small adjustments. My tablet is packed at the moment so I just used a trackpad. It doesn't allow for very smooth motion, but I suspect a lot of these guys use a mouse.

Re: How do you retouch this picture?

Hi,
thanks a lot for your messages. A member helps me in private and this is his render:

I would like a desaturation in this image, and to bring out the freckled.

Re: How do you retouch this picture?

My best for today.

Rough instructions

A little skin smoothing using https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Fm_6e-xi-k and also a little skin smoothing with the clone tool using frequency seperation.
  • Started with some curve adjustments
  • Then adjusted luminosity with a slightly tweaked black and white gradient map
  • Boost contrast
  • soften eyebrows
  • reduce brightness on hand and on jersey
  • increase brightness on cheeks and eyes
  • took back the brightness on the nose a little and clone in a little texture where detail was lost from being overexposed.
  • increased saturation on eye colour and lips
  • decreased saturation on face a little in places
  • increase saturation on the hair immediately surrounding the face dropping off into less saturated hair.
  • background desaturated a bit.
  • gaussian blur with screen blending mode to add a angelic halo effect
  • gaussian blur with linear light mode on low opacity for a more contoured shading on the face.
  • gaussian blur on some areas of the hair that were more annoying.
  • Selected adjustments some using viveza near the end for final value adjustments
  • Burn shadows and dodge highlights in some places.

So that's most things

Softening of the lips is great! Always a good idea to look at making a female portrait more feminine .
