I dont understand some discussions in this thred about natural and unnatural. If you people want to become something in retouching you have to learn how to fix these kinds of images. Obviously, naturally is beautiful, but it's all about image retouching.
If you have a job where you have to retouch models you are forced to manipulate images in this way.

I have not bought this, but when I look at the picture, I think it looks very good. You can still see the pores on the face, which is very important.

You who have made and offers this Action has done a great job. And it's kind to put down the time it takes for others to have the opportunity to use it.

Thank you for sharing.

Would I be able to get the results in the demo picture above with the free version, or would I have to buy the premium version to be able to do that?  THanks!
pstutorialsws Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
Hi tsteele93 

You can create almost the same thing with the skin airbrushing, brighten eyes, clipping-free contrast, and mattifier actions. Though for the lips, you'll need the premium version.

asyurama Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2013
hello, I bought your premium set. however, the airbrushing is taking forever on my lightning fast desktop, if it takes 15 minutes to run on every image then this action is useless.  also the mattifier action generated a blank layer and that's it, there is nothing on it, I changed the blending mode to normal and it's just a blank transparent layer!?  why is it not working?? I have a 64 bit windows system and 64 bit cs5 installed, could it be a compatibility issue? Also what is the zxp file in the folder?? should I install that for the actions to run properly?? I tried to click on it but a window jumped out saying I don't have the rights to install the extension although I'm signed in as the administrator... I am so frustrated and confused, please help!
pstutorialsws Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013

You can ignore the ZXP file. The ZXP is only provided for those who REALLY want to install it with Adobe Extension Manager but there are huge compatibility issues with the software so we advise against it. It's the same thing as using the ATN files. There's an issue with CS5 that requires a patch:…

15 minutes is definitely way too long - I have an average computer and it only takes around 10 seconds to run it on a 5000x3000px image. Since actions only perform a combination of tasks in Photoshop, I recommend that you follow the steps one by one and see which filter is causing the delay and checking your scratch disk settings in the preferences.

I'm not sure why the Mattifier action is not working for you. It's a very simple action. You can expand the action by clicking on the triangle beside the Mattifier action then double-click each action and see where the issue is coming from. Let me know which part it stops on.

Let me know if that helps! If you need to record a video, you can use something like Jing and to record it and send it to me:

I have a similar issue, Macbook Pro Retina (i7 2.6ghz w/16gb, PS CS6, OSX 10.9, so definitely not a slow machine) and Skin Airbrushing's surface blur takes forever to compute (with 100% cpu usage). Seems to be related with surface blur being extremely slow on 16bit images. Downsampling the image @ 8bit makes it much faster (i.e. usable).
