Smooth Skin

Smooth Skin is a local adjustment technique employed to enhance the appearance of skin in photos. It focuses on reducing the visibility of imperfections, fine lines, and blemishes, resulting in a more polished and visually appealing complexion. This process doesn't aim to distort natural features but to provide a subtle, retouched effect. 

Now, with Imagen's Smooth Skin AI tool, this task becomes not only simpler but also more intelligent and customizable.

How it Works:

Imagen's Smooth Skin feature operates seamlessly through a 3-step process:

  1. Recognition and Selection of faces:
    The advanced AI technology is capable of recognizing and selecting important and prominent faces within a photo. This ensures that the smoothening effect is applied precisely to the areas that matter most.
  1. AI Brush Tool:
    After identifying the key facial features, the AI uses a brush tool to mark the selected faces. This precision guarantees that the smoothing process is focused and precise, preventing any unintentional alterations to the rest of the image.
  1. Customizable Smoothening:
    You have the flexibility to select your preferred level of smoothing. Choose between two Skin Styles or customize the value according to your preferences. This level of personalization ensures that you achieve the desired aesthetic without compromise.
