Healing Brush and Fade Command

The key to removing eye wrinkles is to leave a little bit of the original folds of Skin, making the Transition more realistic. Wrinkles come naturally with age, and removing them completely can look odd, especially on an older adult.

First, use the Healing Brush Tool to paint over a wrinkle. Be sure to paint on a New Layer and choose ‘sample: current and below’ from the Healing Brush Tool options. Sample Skin close to the wrinkle by holding ALT/OPTN, then paint over the wrinkle. Use a soft-edged brush about twice the Size as the wrinkle.

After painting over the wrinkle, it should disappear completely. In most cases you will want to reduce the wrinkle, rather than remove it completely. This is where the ‘fade’ command comes in.

Navigate to Edit – Fade… or press SHIFT + CMD + F. This will allow you to ‘Fade’ out the last command you made in Photoshop, and, in this case, it will be used to Fade the Healing Brush Stroke.

Choose the right Opacity for each wrinkle; you may want some to be more visible than others.

Repeat these steps over each eye wrinkle and soon you will have a wrinkle-free photo!
