I usually hate pictures of myself, but have got one that I like finally. However, there is a red rash on my neck that I want to remove. I have tried using hue/saturation but didn't get very good results. Can anyone suggest anything that I could try? Thanks

It requires a lot more work than just hue/saturation. One thing to keep in mind is touch ups are more apparent as the quality of the photo diminishes. Get a better quality photo that is better focused first. The results will be much better.

 

If you really want to edit this photo, you can, but it will require a lot of work to make it look natural.

Some time ago, I subbed for a graphics class, somebody was using something similar to but more powerful than PhotoShop to "copy" a small patch of desired skin texture and color and kept "pasting" it over and over -- eventually covering the area wanting to be covered.  [Gorbulan and I posted at the same time.]

The tool you need is called a clone stamp. (I take a lot of photos of flowers and often use it to remove blemishes from petals or leaves) Most editing programs include a clone stamp eg: FastStone Image Viewer. Their 'clone and heal' is very flexible - you can control the size of the area you are working on with the scroll wheel on the mouse as you go along. Remember to work on a copy of the photo and always 'save as' when you do any photo editing to be sure that you don't lose the original.

Don't use the clone stamp. Use the healing brush, it actually modifies the pixels so they blend more naturally. Clone stamp only copies.

I used Photoshop ! .......just didnt want to spend more than 10min of my free time in editing something minor.

If i had to spend more time doing it , i`d never get my own work done.

And the OP hasnt replied in the meantime.
