Recommended Posts

im totally new to paint.net but i know the basics and everything. but i was wondering if paint.net was capable of airbrushing out skin blemishes or any other flaws in a picture? do you use the cloning tool or something? i really don't know. some help would be lovely =)

I've edited your title to be a bit more specific. Make sure you brush up on the rules. :-) Thanks!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I do a lot of photo edits, particular portrait shots. For cleaning up blemishes, what I do is use the select tool to select the blemish area and use the median blur to reduce the appearances of the blemish because it helps draw more of the skin tone towards the blemish, reducing the redness of it. Reducing blemishes while maintain the natural appearance of skin tones is very tricky. You have to get used to using median blur to spread out the skin tones, gaussian blur to feather out any edges, and even use layers and blends such as lighten and darker, etc. There are various methods to reduce blemishes, some are better than other depending on the situation too. It takes practice but after a little while of doing it, you'll begin to understand how to approach cleaning up a blemish in any picture and make it look clean and natural.

Hope this helped.
