Removing Scratches through Smoothing
Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge
4 easy steps. Done in PSP-X
1) Open your image in psp. I chose this picture of Gemma Ward.
2) Duplicate your background layer.
3) [this step may be different if you have psp 9 and below] Select your first layer, and go to adjust->add/remove noise->edge preserving smooth.
Make your smoothing amount between 3-5.
4) Double click your second layer, and set the blend mode to soft light.
Add text/more effects if you like. I added text, and the outcome looks like this.
The skin has a lovely tone & the scratches are gone!

what font did you use to write : Tutorial by illuminatist at creatblog ? ive been truing to find this for a while . :]
On Paint Shop Pro Photo XI, there's an even easier way:
Just click Adjust->Digital Camera Noise Removal...->Set the blend modes to about 50, depending on how smooth you want the picture, and click ok.
It gives you a smoother look, and it won't mess up the hair as much.
love it ^^
