Remove Skin Complaints Quickly and Easily
Skin Blemish Removal in Photoshop – Good For Beauty or Medical Problematic Images
Sometimes you shoot images of people with mild skin complaints that are not permanent which you (or they) would like to remove. I get requests like this from many of the brides that I shoot each year.
To do this digital enhancement, you don’t need expensive software such as Photoshop CS3, and for “one offs” you can even download a trial copy of its smaller, more user friendly cousin Photoshop Elements 4, 5 or 6 to get the job done within 30 days (I bet you buy it afterwards though)!
Actually removing the blemishes and getting the image looking good can appear, as a beginner, to be quite daunting. This short tutorial takes you through the process of:
- Repairing areas with overly saturated colours
- “Healing” or “touching up” areas of skin complaint
- Correcting colour casts
Please excuse the sound on the video. Having just moved country, I have had to use my laptop for this Photoshop video tutorial and it somehow picked up some interference…not too bad though!
Below is an image sent in by a reader of All Things Photography of her friend’s young daughter who has a mild case of Eczema. You can see the before and after shots below and the video below that…

I’m not too worried about exposure and other things at this point, it is the colouration and blemishes that we want to take care of so please watch the video to see how it is done.
