Photoshop is a powerful tool for retouching a person’s appearance, and one of the most impressive things it can do is convincingly make someone look younger. This fantastic video tutorial will show you how to adjust all of a person’s features to take away years from their appearance.
Coming to you from Jesús Ramirez with the Photoshop Training Channel, this great video tutorial will show you how to convincingly make someone look younger using Photoshop. Besides more obvious things like graying of the hair and wrinkles, one of the most prominent indicators of age in a person is skin texture, which tends to get more weathered in appearance with increased years, and thus, making it a bit tauter and smoother helps to restore the look of youthful vibrance. Of course, with any retouching technique, particularly one that performs such extreme manipulations like this, it is really easy to go overboard. It is generally better to err on the side of being a bit conservative with your adjustments to avoid a final result that looks noticeably artificial. I like to step away from the computer once I am done with an edit and return to evaluate the image with a fresh set of eyes one more time before I export it. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ramirez.
