In this movie, we will be working on the file flamenco.psd.…Go ahead and open that one up.…We have to go to full screen view mode.…Here we have this nice portrait of this flamenco dancer.…As we zoom in we notice there's a lot of variation in the skin.…We would like to correct that.…So what we are going to do is create a layer.…we are going to do that by way of shortcut, Shift+Command+N on a Mac, Shift+Ctrl+N on a PC.…Name the layer, "R1" retouching one.…Next, select spot healing brush.…You can do that by pressing the J key or clicking on the tool in the toolbox.…
Now, that we have this tool, we are going to zoom in even further and what we are going to do with this tool is we are going…to start to click on all of these blemishes even though we are just looking to reduce the intensity of the variation…and then once we get through this, we will use a little bit of masking to sweeten this up even more.…Now, I want to start off by using a brush, it is about the size of the blemishes, it is like even a little bit bigger brush there…
