    Absolutely brilliant. I didn’t know how to do this method by adding a b/w layer before but it’s changed my work all for the better!

    What I Have been doing for skin softening is Duplicate Layer then goto Filters>Other>Highpass then blend mode to Overlay and Then Invert , use mask or eraser afterwards … that works pretty fine too … but from this guy i learnt the Gaussian blur thing and that is pretty cool … so thumbs up for this tutorial .

    Lauri, your tutorials are amazing! I once had a client send me an image of a model against a chain link fence with a lot of debris in the background. My job was to remove all of it and put up a solid wall behind the fence. I ended up spending way too many hours doing it with the clone stamp, my question for you is if you happen to know a better way, perhaps one day you could do a video demonstrating complicated selections and cloning methods, thanks so much.
