Digital Nose Job

This is a very simple technique for decreasing the size of your subject’s nose by 15 to 20%. The actual shrinking of the nose is a breeze and only takes a minute or two—you may spend a little bit of time cloning away the sides of the original nose, but since the new nose winds up on its own layer, it makes this cloning a lot easier. Here’s how it’s done:

Step One

Open the photo that you want to retouch. Press the Z key to switch to the Zoom tool and zoom in if needed. Press L to switch to the Lasso tool, and draw a loose selection around your subject’s nose. Make sure you don’t make this selection too close or too precise—you need to capture some flesh-tone area around the nose as well.
