Head Games: retouching portraits > Glamour Skin Softening

Glamour Skin Softening

This is a technique I learned from Chicago-based retoucher David Cuerdon. David uses this technique in fashion and glamour photography to give skin a smooth, silky look, and it’s also popular in shots of female seniors (not high school seniors. The other seniors).

Step One

Open the photo that you want to give the glamour skin-softening effect and duplicate the Background layer by going under the Layer menu, under New, and choosing Layer via Copy (or press Control-J).
