 One of the most common and well known uses of Photoshop is the “airbrushing” of skin, especially in magazines.
This is a technique that is very easy to go overboard with – keep your final result in mind while you work. Once you learn these techniques, you will start to see them all over the media.
We will work with the tools and techniques that photoshop has to offer in order to airbrush a picture.
There are millions of tutorials on how to do this out there. This one seems decent.
The basic concept to remember is that airbrushing is done by blurring out sharp details in the skin, leaving a smooth, creamy complexion. The key to making it look “right” is to ensure that the edge details remain crisp and clear (otherwise the whole image just looks blurry).
