Dave Newman shares with us the skin treatment he uses to touch up his model’s skin..

Work Flow for pristine skin treatment for my models – using Topaz Clean


(Original Image)

After quick removal of rough blemishes and discoloration, go to Topaz Clean 3, with your image in Photoshop (I use CS4) then go only to SkinEven level. I adjust only the Strength slider with a bit of Threshold and Radius to suit. Keep in mind the ultimate reproduction size as you work. Im rather bold with the application and my clients love it…for best results, apply full file resolution, not a reduction or thin file.
