Hi how does one get a smooth finish to the skin. Covering up flaws and scars and pores giving a silky matte feel to the skin. Like most of the models on mag covers etc. Ive tried the sponge and blur tool. But im not satisfied. Any idea which tool would be the right one to use ?

I use smudge at 7% or airbrush at 3% when I do this type of stuff.

Lots of those kinds of techiniques are listed extensively in the Glamorshop turorial thread at the top of this forum.

I use the healing brush mostly, since it can bring a little patterning across while at the same time not have the obvious tiling of the clone tool.

There are some nice tutorials on YouTube.

Would you be kind enough to put some links up in the tutorials sticky?

I use the healing brush a lot too. That plus the patch tool - it works like a charm!
