Face Smoothing : Bring Beauty To Your Model’s Face

A normal woman’s face can be smoothened into artistlike smooth face by a simple way in Photoshop. What you need is a woman model photo in normal state ( no under or over lighting, and the color should be natural ). The steps are:

  1. Open picture in Photoshop
  2. In the History Pallete, click Create New Snapshot ( camera icon). A snapshot named Snapshot 1 will appear in the History Pallete
  3. Click Filter, Blur, Gaussian Blur.
  4. Set the value of the Gaussian Blur so that the face will look smooth. In this state of course all part of the pict will look blurred.
  5. Create another snapshot that will be automatically named Snapshot 2.
  6. In the Snapshot 2, clik the little box on the left, so a history state icon will appear there
  7. Click the Snapshot 1.
  8. Press Y button to activate History Tool.
  9. Set the value of Hitory Tool opacity ( on the top of the Photoshop window) between 60% and 70%.
  10. Sweep the woman’s face carefully with this history tool.
  11. Do not sweep lips, eyes and nose’s holes.
  12. If needed, you can enlarge this tool by pressing ] button or make it smaller by pressing [ button.
  13. For the parts with hard line such as nose and chin, you should reduce the History Tool opacity into about 30% or 40%.
  14. Done...
