....Get rid of the shine on a fair-skinned face? While in NY last week, I took a shot of my wife in Central Park that is really a nice shot of her. Unfortunately, after a brisk walk through the park and a lack of diffusers (vacation, right), her face has several shiny areas on it. Otherwise, it is a keeper and she's overly critical of her photos so I want to make this work for her.

I'm pretty fair with PS but all my tricks don't get the shine without creating other issues. I know some of you guys and gals have dealt with this sometime before and would greatly appreciate your help.

Cheers,
LSC

This one is not to hard, the easy way is to use the clone stamp. Set it to darken in the drop down menu. Set your opacity to around 20%, pick a soft brush. sample a spot close to the shine and click away. Good luck.

Ditto ... use the clone brush and sample from the areas around the shine. The more sample areas you can use, the better the brush works. just apply it very lightly

Thanks guys, I played with the settings suggested and did this one really quick.

I need to do some additional work but the only thing I've done to this is eliminating the shine on her face, no other adjustments.

This was already solved, but I would use the patch tool, circle a selection around the highlight area and then drag it to a good part of skin. I do it often with the balding guys in the family portraits in studio.
