Plastic skin

Unread postby carllind » 15.01.2007 01:01

Everything goes well for me until I start playing too much with the retouching tab.
I would appreciate some tips or hints from experienced users.
It seems when I retouch skin I get carried away or I don't know how to line up my settings.
If I use Scratches,Clone,Brightness,Color Reduce Noise. I constantly overdo it and the skin does appear unreal and plastic. :)
I wonder if anyone can post some settings they use to get good results,it would be much appreciated.

thanks
Carl

Carl,

You can try to use "Erase changes" brush with intensity of 20-30% to partially return the original texture to the skin.

You can also try to use equalizer on the Noise reduction Tab to decrease noise reduction for skin tones.

Thanks for the tip Dan

I use the equalizer for the noise tab.....
I never thought of erase changes at a lower value!
Erasing at a lower value-almost like adjusting a mask layer.
I will try that one

Thanks again.
