There are many ways in Photoshop to remove dark circles from under the eyes. My favorite is as follows:

1. Select the Clone Stamp Tool from the toolbox (or use keystroke S);
2. Use the following settings in the options bar:Mode-Lighten, 35% opacity, check aligned and sample all layers.
3. Sample a skin tone (option/alt Click) you wish to use and paint out the dark circles.

Always do this on a layer. Because the mode is set to lighten the clone stamp will only affect darker areas (like the circles under the eyes).

Hope this helps

Aloha,

Kohala

Whew!!! Kohala is absolutely correct! Always create a duplicate layer first and do your magic in the duplicate layer.

(I can't believe I forgot the most important point. Thanks Kohala!)

While John's method certainly removes all the bags and circles, I find it leaves her rather unrealistic looking. Very few people have zero roundness under the eye. I use the patch tool, then reduce the effect immediately with the fade last operation to yield a, IMHO, more realistic looking face.

johne,
Really good, straightforward and understandable, simple instuctions. Credit for the effort. 25 more of these and you can make a book for the digital photography section of the local bookstore

John, either you have a lot of free time or you know a secret to creating screen shot tutorials in highspeed that I would love you to share with us. Which is it?

Indeed that is the problem with many PHotoshop techniques, they are overdone and the results look artificial. I always try to do changes like this on layers and then I can adjust as needed using opacity and blending modes.

Another way to do this and get a quite realistic look is with a light amount of selective blurring of the area. I usually do this using the history brush. It really is almost exactly as I've previously described in my tutorial on fixing the subjects eyes. Here is the link:

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/digit...s-history.html

If you scroll to the end I mention the use of the technique using blur.

For those who want to use layers for the same process, check out my tutorial at:

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/digit...lack-mask.html

Just change to using a blur of some sort and then follow the tutorial.

Either of the above methods gives you near absolute control of the process.

Cheers,
rfs
