    I just wrote a blog post about how to smooth skin in Photoshop, and thought I'd share it. It covers some of the basics of:
    • The different blur techniques (gaussian, surface, and smart blur) used to actually make the skin smoother.
    • Different layer blending modes used to help make the effect look more natural and believable.
    • Masking/erasing parts of the effect to control which parts of the image are blurred.
    It might be a bit basic for the Photoshop pros out there, but for anyone else who wants to get his/her hands wet with the basics of how to achieve smooth, glamourous skin, it should do the trick.

    The post is called: Skin Smoothing in Photoshop

    Also, if you have any questions, or especially suggestions about what you'd like me to write about in future blog posts, I'd be very appreciative for the feedback. I love writing about what my audience wants to learn about.

    Hope it helps!

    Dude, give it A TRY.

    If you have trouble, adapt what elements can do and or experiment on your own.

    Rush,

    What tutorials would you recommend for a rank beginner to get started with portrait retouching on cs4? There are so many tutorials available for so many photoshop actions, ... it is quite confusing. Also, most of what I have seen is for intermediate users and not beginners.

    I want to learn to enhance portraits in a way similar to what the advertisements show for PortraitProfessional.

    I have started working my way through a group of video tutorials on the lydia.com site for cs3 but is there something better that you would suggest? I need something very basic.

    Thanks!
