The Skin tools precisely control corrections made to a subject’s face or all skin areas.


Try the Smooth adjustment if you’d like to smooth or diminish wrinkles automatically. This will help smooth out skin without losing details in the hair or eyes. You can choose to target how Smooth works using the Smoothing Area controls specifically. The Face Only option is useful to affect just the faces in a photo. Use the Full Body option to target all skin tones in a photo.

There are three strength settings.  

  • Subtle. The “Subtle” option accomplishes this in a very realistic yet subtle manner.
  • Default. This automatically diminishes wrinkles while ensuring the details in the hair, eyes, etc., are preserved.
  • Super Smooth. If you select “Super Smooth,” then the skin will be even smoother, but there may be some loss of details.

Blemish Removal

If your subject has blemishes or acne, the Blemish Removal slider can make automatic targeted adjustments. Our solution scans the skin area for these sorts of imperfections and employs a localized correction that doesn’t affect the surrounding skin areas.

Unlike common approaches that simply employ a blur over the targeted area and have a limited effect on hot spots, blemishes, or pimples, our solution scans the skin area for these sorts of imperfections and employs a localized correction.


Digital cameras capture more infrared light than the human eye does. As a result, people in photos often appear redder than the subject really was. This is especially true for indoor photos when taken with a flash. The Skin Tone correction will automatically detect and remove the spurious IR from flesh tones while maintaining the proper reds in the other portion of the photo.

Shine Removal

If your subject has a bright sheen from a flash or light source, try the Shine Removal adjustment. This can also be useful to tone down areas of oily skin. It also helps areas affected by bright light or a flash.
