How do I remove stretch marks in Photoshop?


By SYMONE SEVEN

Repeat after me: 

Stretch marks are natural.
Stretch marks are natural.
Stretch marks are natural.

We are human, we grow, and we have something to show for it. Everyone who grows has them, even I am a proud owner of a few. You cannot be skinny enough, or beautiful enough to be exempt from them. Stretch marks are not ugly, or gross or any other label we attach to them. It just is what it is.  Just like we use concealer to cover our acne, we can use photoshop to cover our blemishes. It doesn’t make us ashamed of who we are, but I don’t show everyone everything about me. We choose what we want to share, and sometimes we just want the focus to be on what we want so we remove distractions like blemishes.Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk. 

If I’m reading your mind right now and you want to know how to do this yourself, just keep on reading.

To take it a step further, after this I went back and added Digital Skin Texture over top of the area from the Retouching Academy’s Beauty Retouch Panel.
