Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Blemish reduction, part of Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Skin.
Now that the hairs are removed, we can concentrate…on the blemishes and evening out this bumpy texture.…This is the stage where the skin can get really mushy and over retouched,…and it is also the reason why we have structured our layers in this fashion.…If we go too far at this stage, we can bring back…texture from this minus hair layer without having to remove the hairs again.…So let's duplicate the minus hairs layer, and…we're going to label this one Minus Blemish.…Okay, now let's zoom in again and we can use the old Patch tool…again to start removing some of the larger parts before we smooth out this bumpiness.…
And the larger parts have gotten smaller, because we've…already taken out a lot on the RT layer.…So let's just go through and in the same fashion that we've…been working, start taking out all of the new worst offenders.…And that will reveal a whole crop of smaller…worst offenders. Just working in stages like this enables…us to really, really retain a good sense of the texture…by removing the aspects of the texture that distract us.…
