Lightroom - Banish Those Blemishes!

Untitled photo

Lightroom doesn't have extensive portrait retouching capabilities, you need to use Photoshop for that. But, it is great for minor portrait retouching like removing minor blemishes from your subjects. In this example, we can remove the pimples from this subject:

Step 1 - Open up the Spot Healing Brush, set the brush to Heal, and set the brush size just bigger than the spots you want to remove. Set the Feather & Opacity of the brush to 100. 

TOP-TIP - You can adjust the brush size using the bracket keys [ ] as well as using the size slider. 

Step 2 - Carefully paint away the spots using the brush. Job done!
