Not exactly sure what you mean ... hardware or software?

Software-wise I use PhotoShop CS2 and it works wll.

Hardware wise, I use a Wacom Intuos 3 (http://www.wacom.com/productinfo/intuos.cfm) withthe accessory "airbrush" pen which works similarily to an ink or paint airbrush.

Seethe airbrush's instruction manualhere http://www.wacom.com/productinfo/Int...brush_tips.pdf. The brush works wonderfully with all CS2 tools.Hope this helps!

Softening skin tones is usually not too hard. Check the extreme makeover forum for some good tips on doing it with PS.

I don't use PS - have PSE3, but don't use it much. In Photoimpact, to make reflections, I would select the part I wanted reflected, flip and resize as necessary, then adjust transparency and mode to get the effect I wanted, and merge. In PS, you can do the same thing by mucking about with layers, but I couldn't tell you how to go about it. Again, if you post an example in Extreme Makeover, I'm sure you will get all the info you need.
