flawless skin tutorial. (requested by anonymous)

what you will need:

-any version of photoshop. (preferably CS5 because that’s the version i own.)

-topaz clean 3. (it costs money but there are ways to get it for free.)

-any textures you will like. (this isn’t nessicary, i just find it looks nice.)

the photo i am using:

image

first let’s start off with creating our document. the width has to be 500px (because of tumblr dimensions), but your hight can be anything you want it to be. i am making my document a square.

image

the next thing you want to do is open your image and place it however you would like. since the image i’m using is large, i’m able to resise it so that adam’s face fits perfectly.

image

the next thing to do is to open topaz clean 3. here we will adjust the smoothness of the image.

here are the settings i used for this photo. the settings you choose really depends on what photo you use, your settings will vary depending on the size of the photo or with the look you want to achieve.

here is the result after the adjustments:

image

the changes are very subtle, but give the image more of a smooth look.

the last thing you want to do is make the image glow.

first, take your layer and duplicate it. there will be no difference at first, but then you have to set your second layer to soft light.

image

your image will have more contrast.

your final step is the blue the layer. it’s very simple.

go to filter > blur > gaussian blur.

image

after setting your radius to 2 pixels, your image will look like this:

image

that is your finished product! i added a filter & a texture to my photo to get the completed look.

here are the results i came up with.

Do you think adam is lonely?

well i’m not sure how he’s feeling, but sometimes i think he is. 

being an introvert myself, being around people isn’t exactly something i want to do 24/7, but i still get lonely. i don’t have any real life freinds anymore & the one person who i loved & cared about left me. i kind of imagine adam in the same place i am. of course he has a lot of friends, but keep in mind the daniel situation. i’m sure he also wants a successful relationship. he just wants to feel loved is all. i don’t think he’s still hung up over ann marie since it’s been about 4 years, but we never know. there was a lot of heart break over that girl.

but come to think of it, we don’t know adam at all. we never know if he’s in a relationship or not. after all, he’s a private guy. you don’t exactly see him sharing any personal information about the life he’s living. i hope he’s found a lovely girl who treats him well. i just really hope adam is happy. that’s the only thing i wish for him.
