    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I should be working right now, but instead I decided to spend a little time catching up on all your tutorials that I haven’t had a chance to watch yet. The groom at the wedding I’m currently proofing was bald and sweaty so I have tons of shots of his big shiny head and this “magic trick” is just what I need!! Jodi you are awesome! Keep up the good work!

    Excellent. I suggest one final step when there is a lot more oily/shiny skin to deal with then in your example: play with the opacity level of the new layer to get the total amount you need. I was doing an African-American skin with major reflection from the flash. Super contrast difference. First I had too much on the new layer but then I just reduced that opacity to where it looked good and voila.
