I'm getting into Boudoir photography, a friend is helping me by being my model most of the time. She asked me with this past shoot if I could try to get rid of or conceal the cellulite.
Any advice?
I use Lightroom.

In Photoshop, try frequency separation. If no Photoshop, refer to previous comment.

Another vote for Photoshop: frequency separation, and a light hand at inverted high pass. That's what I had to do on a plus-size swimwear shoot last year. Works fine, just takes a little time (maybe another 15-20 mins per).

You will simply need to use a real photo editing tool such as Photoshop to get professional results. The healing brush tool will quickly solve most skin problems. There are skin smoothing plugins such as Portraiture for large area skin smoothing.

I don't have my harddrive with me to show the before and after images, but tonight when I get home I'll try and upload them both.
I type in Photoshop and so many options, including Lightroom, pops up. Which one do you guys keep referring to? Photoshop CC?

patch tool was available in CS4 if not before.

if you don't own a copy CC is what you will be "renting"

there are other tools out there that can probably do similar if not better jobs.

i don't use this (yet) but i hear great things about it.

I had CS4 once, a long long long time ago when I first started getting into photography..... installed it on 3 computers without knowing the rules, lost all 3 and the jerk on the phone wouldn't help me.

There is also photoshop elements 15 out there, more cost effective, I think, for starting out.

In all seriousness if your getting into Boudoir your gonna need a pixel editor of some sort, PS is the easiest at $10 a month.

Lightroom won't be enough?
I type in Photoshop (I'm guessing that is PS) and a ton of other adobe software pops up. Can you please give me a link to the correct one you are referring to?
