the soft­est skin

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

40 Pho­to­shop gets a bad press be­cause of some pub­li­ca­tions and ad­ver­tis­ing agencies us­ing it in a heavy­handed way on pic­tures of mod­els and celebri­ties. But rather than see­ing it as a some­thing bad, it is bet­ter to think of im­age re­touch­ing as a dig­i­tal form of tra­di­tional make-up. Dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy can re­veal de­tails in the skin that few of us want to show, and Pho­to­shop al­lows us to re­duce the ap­pear­ance of spots and wrin­kles, like us­ing a good foun­da­tion or con­cealer. A good start­ing point is to move the clar­ity slider to the left in Cam­era Raw or in Light­room. Used care­fully, this gen­tly smooths the sur­face of the skin.
