Alright, here's another quick lightroom tutorial for editing portraits. This time we're removing wrinkles and this also works for sort of the lines or the sort of raccoon darkness that you get underneath people's eyes. So this is a follow up to the skin softening that we already did. So I'm going to leave that on there actually. So we can see how these improvements kind of add on to each other. So the first thing we want to do is actually use the healing brush. So that's this spot removal brush with the heel option. So we want to make sure that this is feathered up as much as possible. We're gonna turn opacity all the way up and then we're going to create the size, Make the size pretty big, especially when we're zoomed in on this image. So we're gonna start with this one on the left. So we're just going to paint over like so now it selects this part of our chin down here. We might want to move the selection up to her cheek or maybe her cheek over here somewhere that has a big soft spot...
. Maybe even her forehead forehead. Trying to find somewhere that's not completely a different exposure or texture. Alright, so that looks pretty good. We can make these a little bit better in just a minute. But let's just start with this I over here and again we're just going to move this up to the forehead so we have sort of a similar sort of style. Alright so now let's move on to these crow's feet as we calm that are coming out from the side of the eye. So I'm just gonna do one at a time finding somewhere that looks a little bit more natural. Pretty good. Okay, so lightroom does a pretty good job making selections and then we're just gonna move over here, the size even smaller. Okay, so that's pretty, pretty good. Okay, so automatically using these brushes we can get rid of some of those wrinkles. So if we turn on and off this brush it starts to look pretty good. Now, you know, as we do have a little bit of darkness down here under the eyes still and that might look a little bit unnatural. So what we can do is go and use a brush, let's reset all of our settings. So just double clicking effect. Now first let's make sure we're selecting our area properly. So I'm going to turn on my mask, overlay auto mask is off density all the way up, feathering all the way up as well, make the size a little bit bigger. Alright, so let's just paint over right here and right here, even up here, a little bit can help. Alright, so that's pretty good selection now let's bring up the shadows just a little bit now you don't want to go too far because it starts to look like I don't know you got like sunburnt everywhere else, so just ever so subtly, Maybe the overall exposure. Just a little bit and now for the edges you might want to bring down the density and just brush over the edges just a little bit. So it kind of blends in just a little bit more. You can also bring down clarity to smooth even more. Kind of what we did before with the smoothing skin technique. Alright, so let's see the before and after. Pretty good actually. And this was a quick one. Now. I would probably spend a little bit more time making sure the selection was exactly where I want. I might play in here, right right in that sort of nook inside. Just brighten that area up just a little bit as well. But that's a quick way to remove wrinkles to get rid of any sort of sleep in your eyes. The raccoon eyes that you get after a long night using the healing spot removal brush and the adjustment brush with some basic adjustments like clarity and exposure, awesome. So I hope you enjoyed this tip and we'll see you in another tutorial
