Anyone want to have a go at acne removal without it looking sloppy and cheesy, I'm currently busting my butt on them right now, so you're more than welcome to have a go to (not going to lie, it'd save me time if you did an amazing job! wink)

I can send the RAW files too if the hi-res JPEGs aren't good enough, just leave me your email!

Show me when you're done! It'll be good to know if I suck hardcore at it or not! wink

I posted it here so you can see the before and after and also download to see the texture of the skin. (I'm quite proud of it actually) the res here doesn't do it justice

Oh don't worry no one can see it here but us. Its in my scraps. I'll take it down if you want.
I'd like to move it to my portfolio proper eventually.

As a photographer and re-toucher bad acne is some of the hardest for me to re-touch.
Nice clean and natural look:-)

Here is my shot, I'm probably late to the party but it was indeed a challenge, tried to keep the pores, but ended up just using smaller less obvious pores. I think it turned out quite well, natural edit, slightly air brushed look. I've also done a time-lapse as well for those curious as to how it's done.
