I snapped this shot the other day and do not know how to get rid of the tiny veins in my face....it is actually that red normally so I am ok with that.
Have never done any people stuff in CS3 before.

Barb, you could try and use the "healing" tool - the little tool with the bandaid on it on the right side of your CS3. Pick a small size and click and relase...click..and release around your way.

You could try applying a Gaussian blur from this tutorial that I wrote.

There's a skin-smoothing technique described here (page 10) that will preserve skin texture.

Thanks very much Peano I might even get that printed...I am not big on photos of myself. I think the last picture my family has of me is from about 1980 or so :biggrin:
