Hi all,

I have this photo that I took of my wife at 7.5 months pregnant. I would love someone to help me with doing some alterations. I don't have Photoshop experience(not very much anyway). But looking at the photo you will see that there is some scaring on her stomach and side as well. This was caused by when she had cancer a little while ago. We had less than 5% chance of having a baby but with the grace of god she fell pregnant. I would dearly love someone to help with either minimising the scars and reducing the freckles and making the whole picture look a bit more glamerous as I want to give it to her as a present before the baby comes which is on the 22nd August. Thanks to all that can help, really do appreciate it.

Steve,

Thank you so much for your effort it looks fantastic. I am not sure if this is a hard picture to do PS on, but what you have done is wonderful.

Lan, in addition to getting rid of the obvious blemishes, I added some selective gaussian blur to her skin to smooth it out!

I think Steve is more on because if an edit removes too many features that define a person it is no longer an image that reflects them it becomes very obviously edited. A mistake made often in retouches. If this was for a glamor magazine then sure you would see this kind of edit. Now reallty it all comes down as with any work like this to personal preference so there is no right or wrong but for me lass is more with these.
