On that one, I've only done the skin softening, I left the eyes untouched in PS besides brighting up them up a little.
It helps to see the original also. But to me it looks a little artificial. There's a certain "un-evenness" about the facial tones.
The easiest way to post your photo and be assured that the sizes will work correctly for a post, is to upload the photo at its current size to your G1 portfolio (try to keep the photo no more than 800x800 for the initial upload and less than 200k). Then use the images link above the post box or over to the right under the icons to paste a photo from your Portfolio into the post box. It will automatically be at an appropriate size.
On my two eye sharpening tutorials, I mention at the end of one of them that I use the same process for softening, but with a Gaussian blur layer.
