Hey guys need help. Got this picture that i am going to be printing@ 11x16? and i dont like how the chins look, atlittle fat because of the angle that it was taken at. I tried the liquify but i dont make it seem to work good for me but i'm not good at it anyhow. Any other idea's you guys think i can do to make it look better? Thanks

just a quick point mate

id leave it alone except for removing white light and object above ladies shoulder, and adjust colour to make skin tones more real

its a good shot really, ignore the chins and love it for what it is

Yyou can try perspective adjustment if you think the whole issue is shooting from a low possition. somehthing like this as an example.

I think the shot is great and agree it with the comments, I will however do a slight adjustment and the best thing to do on the chin adjustment is to use a combination of liquify (on copied original) and a duplicate layers of the chin. the duplicates you can reshape with transform tools such as warp, distort, skew etc. and to blend back in you need to push the copied original to get the lines to blend.


Don't go too far, complete removal will look false t that angle there would be some skin overlap so basically lengthen the neck a little to reduce the impact.

Then I reduced the oversaturation in the faces and especially the teeth restoring some detail and addressed some of the color hint on the white areas of the eyes and again the teeth. Finally removed the distracting background lights.

There are various ways you can deal with the chins, but the "big nose" effect of shooting with a short lens will be harder to fix.

It isn't just people who can suffer from this effect.
