Quickly Fix Shiny Skin In Your Photos Using Photoshop Or Lightroom

Video: Anyone who takes pictures of people on any kind of regular basis has had to deal with portraits or other photos where the people in them look a little shiny. Maybe they’re a little sweaty, or lighting is to blame, but either way it’s an easy fix in either Photoshop or Lightroom, whichever you use.

The video above, from photographer Joe Edelman (whose work we’ve highlighted here before) walks you through using the eyedropper and brush tools in Photoshop to quickly smooth out shiny spots on your subject’s face or skin. It’s really easy, and works as well on light or dark skin. In Lightroom, it takes a little more effort, but you’ll use the spot healing tool to do the same job. You’ll need to tweak the settings a bit, but Edelman walks you through the process in the video above, complete with example photos. Hit play on the video above to watch it in action.
