I'm sure this is going to seem very elementary to a lot of you but I'm still in my elementary stage of photography. I took this picture the other day and I like it except there was a slight breeze which made her hair go a little crazy. I know there has got to be some sort of editing trick to smooth her hair out but I can't seem to find a tutorial on the web. Does anyone have a link to one?

It is a nice image the way it is. The model has beautiful eyes.

You can use the healing brush, or the clone tool in photoshop to get rid of the stray hair.

Ok thanks. I'll try that and see what happens. (The model is my wife by the way. I got lucky!!)

My quick and dirty trick in a situation like this is to make a duplicate layer and change the blending mode to darken. Then use either the gaussian blur or dust'n'scratches filter just enough to make the individual fly-away strands disappear. Just look at the problem areas and not at the rest of the photo 'cause its gonna look weird until you cover it with a black mask. Finish off with a white brush on the duplicate layer's mask just in the general area of the fly-aways. This is much simpler than it sounds and you can be fairly relaxed with your white brush. You certainly don't need to try to trace the individual hairs although you could but if you are going to that much trouble the aforementioned clone and healing options are preferable.

By the way, this trick works in reverse (lighten instead of darken) to get rid of stubble and other small dark undesirable irregularities.

Well the general idea was for you to go into PS and try it yourself and hopefully learn something in the process but here you go ...

Whoops, Don posted while I was typing. I took his request for a look-see as permission. My bad.
