Smooth SkinOn the Lunacore Forum I’ve posted an example of using Photoshop CS3′ Smart Filters to make a non-destructive skin correction, based on Lunacore’s original Smooth Skin tutorial.

Harry PotterI’m not a huge fan of copying photographs myself, but when someone achieves excellent results like this and is also willing to describe in text and pictures how she did it (important!), then that’s enough reason for me to mention it on the blog. The image was not traced, done in several layers and a tablet was used.

Note: the image that’s on this page is rather large (over 2MB), so be aware of that if you have a slow internet connection.

Neat ImageLunacore opened a new section called Reviews. The first review is a review of Neat Image, a product to remove noise, film grain, JPEG artifacts, moire patterns, color banding, etc.

Since Photoshop is closely connected to photography, I felt the need to share an interesting site with you.
Mike Hollingshead is storm chaser from Nebraska who has taken numerous pictures of several storms he chased and shares some of them on his web site ExtremeStability.com.
When I first saw some of his images I was extremely impressed. These are the kind of images that encourage me to be creative, either with a camera or Photoshop.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
