Ok, it's how did you soften the skin without softening the skin. wondering minds want to know.....???? Thanks for sharing. S #286348

Sorry. I guess I was a little unclear. What I meant was that I softened the skin on her face without softening features like her eyes or the details of her nose and lips. That way it looks like she has perfect skin but it doesn't look like she has blurry eyes.

I did this in Photoshop using the Gaussian Blur filter. I basically blurred her intire face minus the delicate features.

This is my first upload to I was an avid user of I'm still learning the ropes of this site. So far so good. #1657258

This is so nicely done! How did you blurr only her face and not her eyes and other facial features? #1661028

I copied her face into a new layer. I blurred that layer and then I erased the eyes, nose lips, eyebrows, and anything else that I didn't want to appear blurry.

I hope this helps. #1664542

I softened the skin on her face without softening her facial features (eyes, nose, lips). The car was spotless already so I didn't have to brush anything out.
