    Photoshop Retouching Made Easy: a really simple technique for making every portrait perfect

    When it comes to portraits, everyone wants to look their best. But with today’s high-resolution SLRs, every spot, blemish and flaw can appear in startling detail.

    How to improve skin tone in Adobe Camera Raw

    Adobe Camera Raw has long included a Clarity slider, which gives a dark outline to edges to make an image really jump off the screen. In the latest incarnations of Camera Raw, the Clarity slider can actually be dragged left, to negative settings, to add a soft-focus effect.

    It works very well for smoothing out skin tones, without affecting underlying detail in the way that, say, a Gaussian Blur might do. Applying it to the entire image, however, doesn’t look that great; we need a way of focusing it on just the skin areas.
