Image Retouching

Step 1

Open a picture that you want to retouch in Adobe Photoshop. I used the next picture to work with:


girl start

Step 2

Duplicate your picture in the Layers Tab and clear everything except the face skin like this:

girl skin face

Step 3

Now choose Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with the settings (for the layer which you duplicated):

girl skin face blur

Step 4

Adjust the duplicate layer if needed, with a small brush tool, change the brightness and contrast of the “parent” layer (Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast) using the settings:

contrast settings

And that’s the results: a beautiful model photo for your magazine.
