Recording notes:

  • Tips:
  • Zoom in a lot
  • When using any healing or clone tools, use hard edges (and adjust diffusion)
  • Sample from areas that have the same texture
  • Smooth skin with a color layer, not a blurred layer (you will lose some detail with this trick, but you can back the effect off a bit with Blend If)
  • Noise + Extrude skin texture trick
  • Texture slider boost in Camera RAW
