Smooth Out Skin Imperfections to Make your Avatar Photography look more realistic.
One of the problems with Second Life photography (the image here is Second Life not Real Life; the monochromatic photography makes this photograph look very realistic) are "wrinkles" or watermarks on skins that just do not look right.
I have circles the areas that looks unnatural to me. It is easy enough to fix. You do not have to use Photoshop. Most photographic editors have a "touch-up" or retouch tool that allows you to smooth out imperfections by blending away the line with nearby colors. I am using the one in Google's free Picasa program which is my standard photographic editor - I feel the light adjustment capabilities are the best of any program.
The result - a more natural looking skin, and better photography. It is worth it for those special Second Life photographs that you want to keep and look their best.
