    Well, sometimes photoshoppers are "copy cats" ;)
    But Photoshop, in that regard, is a fairly benign weapon.

    Kyuss, in my old PS 6 I'd probably start from scratch, try to create a skin
    pattern, draw and fill my featureless face, either over a photo or new, then
    use parts of the photo or shade/tint/color to build some features back in to
    define jaw line, forehead, whatever.

    I'm just guessing though. I don't currently have a good face shot with skin
    texture to play with.

    A quick way would be to use the clone tool to copy areas of chin, cheek or
    forehead onto the features you want to remove. If you are using CS/CS2 you
    could also try the healing brush and patch tools.

    As others have suggested, you might try the stamp tool. In PS 6 though, I
    find it dissatisfactory for large areas of skin IF you are talking about a
    closeup of skin where you expect to see the texture in print. I used the
    stamp a lot for blemish removal, scratches, dust, etc. It really depends on
    the degree of realism you're aiming for and how you expect the areas of
    deleted features to look. Remember when they removed Neo's mouth in the

    You can send me a file if you wish, but I have an ongoing project and I'm
    sure it would take me a good deal of time, off and on. I might enjoy the
    diversion though;) If it's hi-rez or a large file you'd have to stuff or zip
    it. I'm on slow dialup:( Slow computer:( I'm just plain slow;)
