Skin Smoothing Action by iamthetv Skin Smoothing Action by iamthetv
This is by far my favorite technique to use for smoothing skin. It gives it a clean and clear look, while preserving details. I made this action for family photo use, and thought I'd share it with everyone here.
Please refer to my journal for usage rules.
Photo comes from :iconclcfacestock:

Oh yeah, I made action in CS3. I'm pretty sure that means it'll work all the way up the PS 7. Not positive though. Just download and put into your programs/adobe/photoshop/presets/actions folder.

sambojones91 on youtube made a great tutorial for using this action. Be sure to check it out: [link]

PLEASE Can you by any chance re-make this action and re-post it? On friday it stopped working for me (when it came to painting the skin, it was a pale light red and hardly airbrushed at all, then eventually it wouldn't paint all together!) I have checked all my settings, they are fine, I deleted the action and re-downloaded it from you but still it does not work :( I am a photographer and I use you're action consistently and am now without it :'(

I'm honestly not sure. I've never used Elements and have no idea of its capabilities. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

Go click the window tab besides view and help and click on Action. Then it will come up as kinda like left arrow thing on the right tab for layers, adjustment, etc.

This seems pretty cool. I am stuck on one part however.

When its time for the "skin painting" I am lost. I pull up a brush, but then what? I don't know what color to use, or which layer I should be doing it on. It defaults to the layer called "Group 1", and stroking the skin with just the brush does absolutely nothing.

for those of us who dont know, how do we use this? I havent used 'actions' on photoshop before so I have no idea how to make this work :P

Drop the action in your photoshop/presets/actions folder.
Then, in PS, select the "Window" tab at the top of the screen and click on "Actions" so there is a check mark next to it.
Next, select the action from the actions window. If isn't in the window, bring up the dropdown box and select load action, then select the action you want.
Finally, click on the arrow next to the action folder, click on the action name and then push the play button at the bottom of the window.

I hope that helps :)
