Now I used Photoshop CS5.1 for this tutorial, however it may easily work with other versions of Photoshop. This is for minor corrections and now things like heavy blemishes or anything like that. This just smooths the skin a bit more and gives more of an ‘airbrushed’ type look I guess you could say.
All images can be clicked to see them bigger if that helps you out. ^_^
By the way, before correcting my skin I used the Spot Healing Brush Tool to cover up the blemish under my nose. It’s the little bandaid looking thing right next to the brush tool on the pallet!
Step 5: Change your radius to be someplace within 13 and 20, or more depending on the DPI of your image. This is all based on watching how things look as you adjust the radius and going with what looks best to you.
Step 9: Make sure to click on your new layer mask and then use your brush on black to ‘paint’ over the areas you don’t want made smoother. So for this it’d be my shirt, my hair, eyes, things like that. In this picture I’ve only painted over one of my eyes, so as you can see one is blurry and the other is not.
