Bags and Blemishes can be tricky to remove. We will teach you how to take them right out!
Using the Patch Tool
The Patch Tool is perfect when you need to Retouch a large area. After you have created a Stamp Visible (Shift+Alt+Optn+E), make a selection around the area you would like changed.
These areas will include Skin blemishes, under eye bags, wrinkles, dark spots, scars etc.
After making your selection, click and drag inside of the selection to a similar area that does not have any blemishes.
The Fade Tool
The Patch Tool is not perfect, sometimes the blending won’t look uniform. In this case the best option is to Face out the Patch effect until it does blend smoothly.
You could use things like the Eraser Tool or a Layer Mask, but the Fade Tool is the best option. You will be able to see your changes in real time and it will allow you to continue patching on the same layer.
