Tutorial: Easy High Contrast Textured Skin Effect

A simple and easy method for creating extreme, tack sharp photos in Photoshop CS and up.


Freaking News Tutorial: Easy High Contrast Textured Skin Effect

Side note: Sharpening in lab color on the lightness channel may give you better results.
________________________________

Here's another way using the image/adjustments/selective color adjustments.
I bumped the white settings twice in the selective color adjustment.


I have done similar images in dozens of other ways, so feel free to experiment and discover your own unique methods.

Here's the effect on a Bush pic. I also used an emboss layer set to overlay. Less extreme would be just a matter of lowering the opacity on the layer, or not sharpening the overlay as much.


Even youth and beauty cannot escape this effect:

Here's the Funkwood effect.

He worked on this before the tutorial was posted. I only told him the basic fundamentals on how he could create skin texture.

Maybe he can tell us how to do them eyeballs like that?

lol! great example. I did the eyeball by taking the white part of his right eye and duplicating it on a separate layer. Then I used the warp and resize tool to shape it to the size of his whole eye.. It's as simple as that.... Just a bit of clean-up with a medium eraser tool... Send me an email if you need more details... cheers.

His eyes seem to have wrinkles in them is what got me wondering. as if you dodged, brushed or applied a distortion filter.
