    Darren,

    This is a great tutorial! I take photos of my theatre students (head-shots) for their acting resumes. This will be a big help! Thanks so much!

    Cheers,

    I used your tutorial again and this time on two head-shots. They turned out great. Thanks again for your effort. This post really helped.

    This is so cool, I followed the tutorial using a picture I took of myself with my laptop as a test ...
    I may have overdone it, the result is so funny, I look almost too smooth, a little waxy and say, 10 years younger! haha.
    Seriously though, thanks Darren, I had no idea I could do this in photoshop.
