EVERYTHING YOU LOVE TO HATE™ Strobist Carrie Mae Weems Daniel Kukla Photoshop Training - Smooth Skin tutorial (part 2/2) Create in Photoshop a new layer on top of the Blemishes layer by clicking on the Create a New Layer icon . Rename this layer to Smooth Skin by double clicking on its name in the layers palette. Hold down Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E (Command + Option + Shift + E on the Mac) to merge all visible layers on the active layer (Remember this Photoshop shortcut, it's a very useful one) or in other words; the layer Smooth Skin will contain the image that was visible in the document window when you used this shortcut, which includes all the corrections we did to remove blemishes. We're going going to use the Median filter to make the skin look smooth. Important: This tutorial was written at a time that the new Filter / Blur / Surface Blur wasn't availble in Photoshop. Notice that by using Gaussian Blur you're actually moving the blue that's in the background into the skin. Now go to the menu and select Filter / Noise / Median... , enter a radius of 10 pixels and click OK. The result: in the tool bar.

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures: Angled Photography Ideas I really think this next party is going to be tons of fun. The party will be April 12th so you have plenty of time to snap those photos and create a post. Every time I take a photo I feel like I learn something. That’s what these parties are all about. Getting out your camera and capturing moments. For this post I am borrowing photos from other sites to show you examples of angled photos. I found this great website called DP Shots (Digital Photography Shots). In these examples the photographer tilted the camera up to create these fabulous shots.

Forest Scene by GFXPUNK Sistene Stairs by photodan The side angled shot seems to be a favorite with bloggers. Recently I took a photo of my little car and tried to make it look artistic. And finally tilted shots.
