Hi I usually read and find all fashion magazines or cosmetic printing advertisements and having perfect skin tone and texture in the model faces. Could Photoshop make this? How and what kind of plugin I need to make this done in PS CS2? Thank you for the information.

Hi, this sort of work can be done in Photoshop alone, assuming one has the time and skill. Otherwise, third-party plug-ins are available to make the job faster and easier, with better overall results.

See the links under "Portrait enhancement" on this page. The new Imagenomic Portraiture is becoming popular with the retouching crowd.

If you want it to be as perfect as in these magazine, you will need to spend a few hours on one image to get it that good. Plugins will only help you to speed up one or two steps of the whole process.

A few techniques (but not all) are described in the book "Adobe Photoshop Restoration & Retouching" by Katrin Eismann. It should be a good starting point.
