CoffeeShop Portrait Retouching Photoshop/PSE Tutorial Part 2: Cleaning Up Skin Imperfections/Shadows

Today is Part 2 of my portrait retouching tutorial using this image from Pixabay. You can read all about removing color casts in the first part of the tutorial.  On this tutorial I am going to show you one way I clean up skin and remove bad lighting shadows. This should be done before  running a retouching action.  I will finish this edit on Part 3 with my newest retouching action:  Perfect Portrait 3 Express.

Spot Healing to remove skin imperfections:  Select the Spot Healing Brush Tool (J) and click on areas of discolored skin such as moles and red marks.

On my next tutorial we will finish up this edit with one of my favorite retouching actions!
