My baby has a scratch on his face and I'm wondering if I can use GIMP to touch it up so it's not so noticeable. If so, could you please tell me how?
Thanks so much!!

Duplicate the pic so you hvae two. Click the eye next to the bottom layer so that it isn't visible. Using the eraser tool with a small fuzzy brush and erase the scratch. Click the eye next to the bottom layer to make it visible again. Using the move tool click on the scratch and move the bottom layer. Play around until the scratch isn't visible. Then merge the layers together and using the smudge tool with a small fuzzt brush, smudge the area.

This is how I do it. There might be other easier ways though. x

What I've been doing is using the dropper to pick up a color close to the blemish, then use a small fuzzy brush to color over it.

Or use the healing tool... CTRL + click on an area of skin that isn't damaged then click on top of the scratch.
