    Get rid of marks of sweat marks...

    I have shot a wedding recently in Punta Cana on the beach. It was hot! The groom was sweating badly. As a result I have sweat marks all over his face. I have tried different tool in photoshop but I am just not 100% satisfied with the results....Which tool do you use to get rid of sweat marks?

    I can use the healing brush and clone stamp. It just takes a little practice.

    I would actually add sweat. The realist's representation of things to come.

    However, I digress. Use the healing brush, the patch tool, or content-aware in CS5.

    I don't think there's any magic utility or effect to remove that from a model, WP. I think you're best off doing just as Greg and Dray suggest. Watch out for that Content Aware healing brush on CS5 though ... I'm not getting very good results from that thing (- but that's another thread to come!)

    It depends on the amount of sweat, if its a lot of sweat it can be a bigger problem, and pretty much un-editable. If its a smaller amount, as was said, can heal/clone out.

    If its on the forehead and causing the sweaty hair thing, there is not really anything that can be done about that.

    Anyway - post an example and it would give us a better idea on a technique to fix it.

    Have you tried portrait professional?

    I'm very new to the software and haven't used it for sweat, but it removes every pimple in sight. No more cloning or erasing for me. I love it!
