Obviously this was done quickly, but it gives you the general idea of what to do.
So lets start. This is the image that I'll be using.
The first thing you want to do is create a duplicate layer of your image. You can do this by right clicking on your original layer in the layer palette and selecting duplicate layer. You should have something looking like this:
Next you want to select your spot healing brush (see image below) and click the areas on your subject that you wish to get rid of. I have something like this:
As you can see, the image can still use a little work. So we're going to select the healing brush tool (see picture below). To use this the best way, hold down alt and click on a spot on your subject that you would like to use to cover up the blemish(es). The spot that you are using to cover up your blemish should be a clear, clean spot on the subject. Obviously if youre covering up a blemish in a dark area, you arent going to pick a light spot to cover it up. You want the lighting and colors to work together. After doing this, I have something that looks like this:
After this, you should be done. If you have more spots to cover that you missed, simply go back to the spot healing brush tool and resume the same process. If you feel your picture is too plastic barbie looking, simply lower your opacity on the duplicate layer.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
