Hey girls.. welcome to the 3rd part of our photoshop quickie series.In our first tutorial, you learnt how to transform this :
to this by adjusting the contrast and colour levels:If you missed the first tutorial, you can find it here.
Today you will learn how to make your skin so much more smoother… your result will look like this :
If you compare this picture to the one above, you can see that this photo, her skin is very very smooth, especially the neck area. What we are going to do is we are going to blur the whole skin area to get that smooth look.
You can see a layer named Background there. Click on it.
right click on the Background layer, and this will pop up.
Click on duplicate layer.
Pull the slider until you are satisfied with how blur it is.
We use 7.2 pixels.
Click on the Eraser tool
Most importantly, rub away her jawline to get back that sharp line … do that to the ears and nose as well.
Now, you know that all photos have noise. those dotted coloured pixels. when we blurred our photo, all the noise is lost. We want them back or people will realized that we have blurred the skin.
Go to filters> noise> add noise
match the noise value to the photo noise level..
Pull the slider and get the best option.
We used 1.65.
