How to Quickly Smooth Skin and Remove Blemishes & Scars Using Photoshop

On this video Marty Geller from Blue Lightning TV shows you how to quickly remove blemishes and smooth skin easily with Photoshop.

This simple tutorial takes you step by step through the process of removing blemishes and other skin problems and making the entire skin look smoother using surface blur, Gaussian blur and blur tool.

The technique that Geller shows in this video might be O.K. for some uses, however for many it might be considered too much (as a lot of the finer details of the skin simply disappear when retouched in this way. We would recommend using this technique only when you want to super smooth skin look to begin with and care less about the more realistic aspect of the photo.

If you want a more delicate technique – check out Aaron Nace’s “How to Remove Acne in Photoshop” video we published here a few months ago.
