Removing Unwanted Lines and Blemishes via the Healing Brushes – Professional Photoshop Portrait Retouch Series – Part III
Welcome to Part III of the Professional Photoshop Retouching Series on SLR Lounge. It is time to get to retouching!
In this Photoshop video tutorial, we are going to begin removing unwanted detail from our photo. We will be using the healing brush presets that we setup in the previous tutorial, so be sure to watch the previous videos so you can achieve the same results.
Keep in mind that in this tutorial we are removing unwanted detail. There are certain types of details such as eye lines and smile lines that you want to diminish, not remove. We will cover how to diminish lines in a future tutorial. Enjoy!
