    Can't tell at this resolution. What part are you interested: the shine, the color, or the texture?

        Hey Iris, i have to ask you something about your website. How did you manage to get the uiloader to smooth the image at the screen resolution? Every time I place a dinamic content uiloader and it has to shrink the image, it doesn't use any kind of resampling interpolation and the images get all jagged.

          Hey Flexmanta. Sorry I can't help you on this one I hired a flash specialist to do the "before-after" and I've bought the website as template.

                The skin retouching you see there is just the degrunge technique, i would suggest you to learn the dodge and burn technique, it gives better results and is looks way more natural good luck

                  I don't think so, look how exaggerated the texture is, look in the neck/shoulder area.

                  She's either been misted with glycerin or there's some sort of texture overlay going on there.

                    The texture pattern looks like what Topaz Clean 2 produces...

                      Nah, that texture is what happens when people keep believing that an overlaid blurred noise layer makes good skin texture... now her pores are the size of peas.

                        It doesn't really look natural, but it's a cool look. The 'correct way' would be Dodging and Burning until the end of time of course, but sometimes some people don't want it all to be perfectly realistic. I would say that this look has been achieved by using some kind of smoothing/blurring filter in combination with a High pass filter on top to get the texture back. The way I describe the smoothing can also be made with surface blur, but I will describe a slightly different method.

                        Try this:

                        1. SMOOTHING:
                        Copy your Background layer
                        Set the new layer's blend mode to Vivid light
                        Invert the image
                        Filter -> Other -> High pass
                        Adjust the settings to get the amount of smoothness you want
                        Add a black layer mask and paint in the mask with a soft white brush to reveal only the skin areas

                        2. BRING BACK TEXTURE:
                        Copy the Background layer once again
                        Put it on top of the Smoothed layer
                        Filter -> Other -> High pass
                        Setting should be low here, about 1-3 pixels, so you can see the texture just a bit
                        Set the Blend mode to Overlay/Soft light depending on how sharp/contrasty you want your texture
                        Add a black layer mask
                        Paint the texture back in the mask on the skin areas with a soft white brush

                        If you want extra texture you can also use Filter -> Noise -> Add noise with a setting of maybe 1% on the texture-layer. On this layer you can also use Gaussian Blur of a low amount since the texture tends to get a bit sharp sometimes.

                        This is a Quick and Dirty way for skin retouch, but with fair result if you don't overdo it. I always adjust the opacity of the layers too, to let the original texture shine through just a bit. Hope I made some sense!

                          I still do think so.. in fact i'm sure they blurred the skin and put some skin texture layer (high pass) above it on soft light/overlay.. is looks so fake

                            You're being contradictory.

                            What I replied to was your statement "The skin retouching you see there is just the degrunge technique."

                            Now you're saying something else.

                            I really don't care, but for the sake of the OP it's worth being clear that degrunge won't give him that exaggerated droplet look. At least not as described in the retouchpro tutorial most people here go by.
