    Shining, sweaty foreheads. Anyone have any good Photoshop techniques to remove it? My results are less than decent, I tried a few different things. Thanks..

    That looks like on-camera flash, not sweat, to me...

    OK, I gave it a try.

    [​IMG]

    `First, I adjusted the curves, lightening it up.
    `The gum was bugging me, so I used the Sponge tool to desaturate it, and now it's less distracting - it almost looks like her teeth. I also used this tool to whiten up their teeth :)
    `To get rid of the shine/glare, I mostly relied on the Patch tool (it's one of the Healing Brush options) For her forehead, don't select it all at once. I did it in 4 or 5 parts, using the upper right part of her forehead to switch it with. I used this techique on her cheeks, too.
    `There were some spots, like on their noses, that I used the Clone Stamp tool on. I set to a low opacity (~40%) and used a soft brush.
    `For fun, I also minimized the tan line on Mmagnetic Lasso tool to select the two, feathered the selection, inverted it, and darkened the background.

    Hope some of that is useful :)

    great job K8, thanks.. Yea the gum was a pain, and in my edited version I actually cloned it out. Both methods did great to get rid of it. Great job on the flash too.. I just couldnt get it to look right. Thanks for takin the time, i appreciate. And great explanation too!
