Tutorial – Smoothen faces and settle skin color

Here’s my first entry in this new category: Photoshop tutorials! This one is really really really basic, and involves my favorite filter, Reduce Noice.

Let’s take a look at the first picture:

Charming, eh? That’s my friend Christopher for you single ladies out there.
Next up, we want the Noise filter option.

That gives us a smoother face surface.

But I don’t like the pink-ish color of the face. So next up, Image – Adjustment – Replace Color.

Select the skin you want adjusted, and drag the Hue until you reach color satisfaction.

Almost there! Just want the teeth a bit whiter too while we’re at it. Select the teeth using the Quick Mask Mode:

Drag Brightness bar until teeth reach perfect-Hollywood-smile status.

Et voilá! The hotness improved.
