    Anyone of you can link me to a tutorial that covers playboy centerfold style editing? I would like to know techniques of achieving the smooth / shiny skin textures they do on the centerfolds.

    I was looking around and found a couple of tutorials which were pretty helpful...but not quite what I was looking for.

    I would love to know how the pics on www.finestwomen.com (NWS) were edited (notice the skin texture on the models).

    Thanks guys :)

    new layer. blur that layer, blur it to hell. reduce opacity to what erases the flaws. use your history brush to bring back sharpness in the eyes and other details

    Hugh Heffner doesn't like his centerfolds edited -- He likes them to look finished when they are shot.

    Most of what you see is the effect of lighting

    Probably the centerfolds...but how about the other pictures? They are obviously edited right?

    no, they do not airbrush any of their photos. it's a point of pride with them and with the photographers. if you know what you're doing there is no need for that.

    I was reading a photography magazine at the dentists office yesterday...and apparently, they don't do any editing what so ever unless its a serious problem.

    You should see how many lights they use though, its ridiculous.
