I'm going to be teaching you how to use this free action
CoffeeShop Free PS/PSE Actions!: CoffeeShop Baby PowderRoom FREE PS/PSE Action!

1. load your pic into your program along with the action.

2. open the action and push the play button. This is what you should look like.


3. we'll start from the bottom and go up. when you highlight the red skin layer, make you click on the first box [the one that's not white]. Make your foreground color white and use a large brush. bring your layer's opacity down [I did mine around 30% but it's different for every picture] and brush the white on him. you can see where I did a small portion. Brush all over his skin. It will take the detail out a little bit, but we'll fix that in a minute.


4. When you highlight your smooth skin layer, make sure you click the one with the black box and make your foreground color white. using a small/medium brush, brush it all on his skin, taking care to go around details. Drop the opacity to around 50%


5. Open up your healing brush. with your main pic layer highlighted, make your anchor on a piece of his skin that is relatively smooth [my cursor is where i did mine] and use it on the spots on his skin [don't go over board, it doesn't have to be perfect by any means].


6.when you highlight your lighten skin layer, make sure you click on the black box. Your foreground color needs to be white and use a small/medium brush. drop the opacity down to a little over 30% and brush his skin, being careful to miss detail spots.


7. when you highlight your skin glow layer, make sure you click on the black box. Your foreground color needs to be white and use a large brush. drop your opacity to about 50% and brush every inch of his skin.


8. when you highlight your eye define layer, make sure you click on the black box. Your foreground color needs to be white and use a large brush. brush over any details that you may have lost when you used the red skin layer, mainly the eyes/nose/mouth but i did the ear and hair as well. drop the opacity a bit to taste.


9. bump up the contrast up a bit. for my program i go to image>adjustments>brightness/contrast.


voila!

My skin is as smooth as my daughters! I printed this out too and it looks pretty good - a friend couldn't tell I had retouched it until I showed her the original!

I can't figure out how to save it-I'm using pse 5 on a Vista, do I cut and paste the location to save it? After more than a year and a half, I still can't do an extraction, there's probably no hope for me with this...
