Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Retouching with a light hand, part of Photoshop Retouching Techniques: Skin.
Retouching with a light hand is something you…should always aim for regardless of the project.…Let's take a look at some of the settings we will use in this chapter.…The clone stamp on transfer mode will be the primary tool used.…So if you click right here on transfer, you can…see that the opacity jitter and the flow jitter are…both set to pen pressure, which gives us a nice…sort of faded edge that tails off at the end.…That will enable us to blend in imperfections better rather than just…sort of take them away.…And being that the objective here is to keep the skin as…natural as possible we're going to want to leave in some of these imperfections.…
And we're going to definitely want to leave in these freckles.…The dodge and burn tool will also play a more integral role as we will use it…to blend imperfections to a state of not quite…removing them, but making them just less important overall.…The technique I use to loosen my wrist up a bit,…is to create an alpha channel.…Just like this, go into our channels and just click down here.…
