Creativepro.com: Photoshop How-To: Super-Smooth Skin

Interesting technique for Photoshop 7 or CS, I think.

No way that's a horrible technique. Look at the final comparison images. It's practically blurry and the eyes have been fundamentally changed so that she looks almost asian. A vastly better way of handling this would be to run Neat Image or a similar noise removal application and enter areas of offending pores or blotchiness or whatever as samples of the 'noise' that needs to be removed.

Personally I think that technique, as least as shown in that example is awful. I'ts blurred to the point of appearing totally out of focus.

A year or so ago GG member Robert Bigerstaff from SC posted an excellent tutorial on how to accomplish that task. It was one of the most well written and easy to follow programs on how to get this done. Please write him and see if he can repost it or maybe he can send it to you.

Yeah, I think that sample photo is a bad example since it looks like it was a pretty soft-focus shot to begin with.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Yeah this is definately the best way to go about it.

Roberts Tutorial

For small blemishes and things.. the newest "patch tool" and "healing brush" are really nice (if used properly).

I came in looking for tutorials on dealing with skin. I don't necessarily want 'super-smooth' I'm just looking at how to minimize blemishes while keeping decent texture. What techniques do you use? or links?

I've simply used Noise>despecle in some instances.

Specifically I was working with a black model and there were slight differences in the pores in different areas of her face - such as cheekbone vs forehead. It was notacable in some shots, but not in others. I was looking for something to replicate the texture across the transitions, but wondered how if I don't have enough space to draw the healing patch to.
