I recently bought Photo – almost seemed rude not to at the discounted price – and I’m amazed/daunted at the amount of tools that are in there.
It will probably take me a very long time just to get under the surface of what’s possible but I thought I’d give myself a little challenge.
I wanted to see if I could do some basic editing and decided to try and de-freckle a photo.
I’ve attached the original and result side by side.
I didn’t want to totally expunge every single ‘blemish’ and leave the young lady looking like a shop dummy so I tried to leave her skin as I think it could be without the freckles while still having some of the other things that skin naturally has.
It’s not perfect by any means but I was very pleased with what I could do in around an hour with just the Blemish Removal Tool (and Undo).
I haven’t posted this as any kind of “Look at this great thing I’ve done”, rather I’ve posted it in the hope that people thinking about buying Photo might ask themselves: “If this bloke can do this with no training or artistic talent, just think what could be possible if I got my hands on this.”

Note: I have absolutely nothing against freckles. I just chose the photo as it looked like a difficult one to experiment on, which, in the end, it wasn’t because of the tools in Photo.

So, did you do it with "Blemish Remover" or with "Frequency separation"?

Thanks Smee Again and Alfred (and everyone who pressed Like).
I think this thread might have elicited more Likes than anything else I’ve posted in this forum.
