Welcome to this quick tutorial on smoothing skin. So this is great for portraits more of a stylistic. Edit more than sort of advertising style of edit for portraits. Follow along with this wrinkles, jpeg image. So what we're going to use is the adjustment brush. So go ahead and open your brush. We do have an effect for this already set up, which is soften skin. So I'm going to zoom in here with the Z key and I'll show you what's happening. If I just brush over really quickly, I'll show you. Pay attention, pay attention, things start to get a little bit softer and that's because we're decreasing the clarity. In contrast, we're increasing the sharpness because if we don't increase the sharpness, it gets a little bit too like as if you're painting over it with sort of an overlay rather than just smoothing with increasing the sharpness you get, you keep a little bit of the detail. So when you're doing this, you want to pay attention to where you're painting, you might want to make sure you...
have your overlay selected so we can actually see what we're painting before. And of course this depends on who you're editing your portrait of down here. This can help a little bit with this acne, which is pretty good. Something like so cool. So that's pretty much it for this lesson. It's just a quick one.
