    Question face re-touching... how to?

    how do i re-touch a face photo?

    you know in studios, after they took a series of shots, the final output shows usually flawless facial features, ie, no pimples, blemishes, wrinkles, etc... how can i do that using paintshop pro 7?

    for an example, try to make this face smoother... heeee...

    try to make the pimples, blemishes, stubbles, wrinkles, and "pot-holes" disappear and as professional looking as possible...

    also post your "techniques", and how you do it... thanks!

    Wah, the picture is overexposed and out of focus!!

    I guess it's a combination of clones and blurs to remove those ugly spots. Usually, a blur is used at the end to produce a soft look which further de-emphasise flaws and enhance features.

    Saw this method in the latest Digital Photo (Dec issue):

    a) create a layer;
    b) lazzo the face area and use Guassian Blur;
    c) use eraser to sharpen back the eyes and other features that you like.
