the softest skin
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.
