Frequently Asked Questions
How do I soften the skin?
Simply play the ‘Skin Softening’ action on the background layer (which needs to be the portrait you’re softening). Wait for the action to finish, you will notice the pop-up boxes.
Simply click on the black mask on the group layer and paint over the area to be softened with a soft white brush.
How do I use the new Dramatic Light in the Pro-Portrait pack?
Once you have created your beautifully retouched portrait simply save the JPEG (or which ever format you’re saving in). Open the JPEG in a new Photoshop window and hit play on the action!
As the Action guides you you will see tooltip help popups. If you need further help just get in touch!
