How to Remove Acne in Photoshop

Anyone who has gone through puberty knows that acne can stand out in a photo. Don't let those spots get you down! In this episode we show you how to get rid of acne and pock marks in Photoshop.

The key to removing acne is to divide the process into two steps; The first step is to get rid of redness and the second step is to remove the blemishes.

How to Remove Redness

Half of the battle is removing the redness around acne and it can be difficult if you don't use the right tools. In this episode we show you how to use Hue/Saturation to target specific areas of red and alter them so they look like normal skin tone.

Removing Acne Blemishes

After removing the color it is time to remove the blemishes. Adobe has done a great job with the spot healing brush in recent versions of Photoshop (CS6, CC, CC2014). It makes removing zits and blemishes very easy as long as you check a few settings. Be sure to select "content aware" and "sample all layers" so you can use this tool on a new layer and not destroy your original layer.

Simply paint over the blemishes to remove them. We suggest removing small spots first and then moving to the larger areas. To finish off the job, zoom out and paint larger areas. This will help to even out uneven skin tones.

Adding Red Back to Skin

In the first step we removed all the red from the skin. This is a necessary step when getting rid of acne but you will want to add a bit of red back to the skin to make it look more realistic. The difference is that the original red was blotchy and very saturated. This red will be softer and more subtle.

Choose the red color from the lips and paint over the subject's face, then change the layer blend mode to Soft Light and reduce the opacity to 20%-50% or until the skin looks natural.
