Dynamic Skin Softener

Before After

Creates soft, lustrous skin, without affecting other objects in the image. This filter can even be used on photos that don't contain people to take advantage of the unique softening effect on other objects.


Filter Settings Panel Description

Skin Color: Select the color of the skin tone using either the eyedropper to select a color from within your photo or by clicking on the color patch to access the color picker.
Color Reach: Controls the range of affected colors. Slide to the left to narrow the range of affected colors or to the right to expand the range. A value of 100% causes the softening effect to be applied to all colors and objects throughout your entire photo.
Small Details: Controls the amount of softening applied to small details in your photo.
Medium Details: Controls the amount of softening applied to medium details in your photo.
Large Details: Controls the amount of softening applied to large details in your photo.
