In this tutorial, you will learn how to smooth skin in Photoshop!
We will work with two high-end skin softening techniques.
Both methods are non-destructive, which means that you can edit your skin softening effect at any time!
But most importantly, these skin smoothing techniques will leave the skin texture intact. So that you can get beautiful smooth skin, without it looking fake or too soft.
The first skin softening technique will use a brand new feature of Photoshop CC. The Texture Slider in Camera Raw.
If you are in an older version of Photoshop, don’t worry, the second technique will work in Photoshop CS6.
We’ll start this portrait retouching tutorial by removing blemishes and other skin distractions using Photoshop’s Spot Healing Brush Tool.
Then, after the initial clean-up, we’ll learn step-by-step how to smooth and soften skin without blurring skin texture, or other vital areas in the portrait.
