This Portrait Action I created for Photoshop was born out of necessity. Getting soft skin in post can be difficult, especially if you are trying to maintain natural skin texture. The generic tools in Lightroom and other programs fail in that they make the skin too much like plastic or wax. It is very obvious. This action allows you to control the amount of softening while maintaining
the integrity of the skin itself. It can be subtle, but that is the goal of any professional.
