Skin Smoothing in Camera Raw

Posted on: 13 June 2010

Smooth, flawless-like skin can make or break a portrait. You can quickly make any skin look creamy soft by tapping the K key in Adobe Camera Raw 5 which will bring up the Adjustment Brush. Then set the clarity slicer to ~40 to start with. Brush over the skin you want to smooth and step back to review. If you want it smoother simply drag the slider farther to the left. This quick tip will help you to get good portraits and allow your patrons to quickly view proofs before any other changes are made with the Healing Brush in Photoshop.
