I have no idea how to do it. Does anyone have any good tutorials or sites for me to learn so I can practice this in PS?
If you shoot in raw you can actually use the clarity slider in ACR to "soften" skin ever so slightly. You can then mask the eyes and lips back in. I am not a huge skin softener but on seniors I have used the clarity slider and been happy. No where near as good as Portraiture but it works
I think I read a good tutorial in one of the sticky topics here (?) and in PSP I've used the "soft focus" tool.
