Olá, Chepe, benvindo à RetouchPRO

Looks pretty good to me.

Although one of the dangers of this technique is in letting things go a bit too far - the forehead texture comes over as a bit too strong.
Pores in the nose and cheeks are to be expected, but on a young lady's forehead they seem a little out of place.

Look forward to hearing more from you.

No nit-picking here, but I've already seen this tutorial months ago, I think I remember it was even with the same picture. How come?

Thanks studioj and byRo

2 Days ago I was wondering how to smoothing out the skin and after some google I came to this site.

I will give it another try taking care of the forehead.

Ok... here is a second try in another image, same model.

Large file here

I did take care of the forehead: using the BLUR TOOL and then FADE BLUR TOOL until I got what i wanted.

Quite amazing! I tried it here on my friend Buddy. Mind you, this was my first shot with this technique and my first guess at the radius to use.
Thanks for this!
Bill

Unlikely, unless its a MASSIVE coincidence, the image in this tut is one I pulled off stock Xchng and Ro used for the tutorial - the probability that someone else took the same image and used it to demonstrate the same tutorial is minute.

Welcome to RetouchPRO, elshagon
I'm glad this was useful.

Maybe Patrick is referring to the tutorial mentioned by shelby here, published soon after mine which covers the same ground and coincidentally uses some of the same words.

(The image is different though)

Nope, that's not it. It was using exactly the same picture. But reading yours again the technique is (as far as I remember) different, although it covers skin smoothing as well

Don't remember where I found it though.

Thumbs down Great!

Hi byRo,

I have reading yours tutorials and I'm very impressed with your knowledge in photoshop. Your english is great too! Congratulations! It's my first post here, because my english is bad and i'm ashamed to write something. I'm from brazil too.

"Estou realmente impressionada com seus posts, vc mora mesmo no brasil? Seu ingles é excelente, incrível...um dia chego lá...hahaha...Vc não participa de nenhum forum de fotografia aqui do brasil? A sua contribuição seria ótima, pense nisso."

Abs,
Rari
