Remove double chin?

I have a lovely daughter who has developed a bit of a double chin as the years are rolling by. Does anyone have any ideas how this might be removed? I'm using PSE7.

You can try the liquify tool but a little goes a long way.

I cloned the sweater to hide skin.
Added a few clouds to make the picture busier and give the eye something else to look at as well. Perhaps adding a necklace would help....

Well, this is my quick contribution...

a little bit of liquefy, a lot of cloning, some blurring,

maybe some more work on the neck area needed as per Ken...

I wait to see what this looks like once it is posted.

Double Chin? Don't We All?

qaxar -

I had a shot at your photo as well - also using PSE7.

My version was treated with:

Clone Stamp Tool (change source often, lowered Clone Stamp Tool opacity to about 65%)
Blur (didn't need that much)
Pearly White Smart Brush for teeth (touch-up)
Levels for color correction

That's it.

When I have the option, I try and take photos of people with the camera slightly higher than them. This makes your subject look slightly up - and thereby removing most double chins. It looks like your photo was taken from below your daughter, making her look down, accentuating any chins.

Good luck,

Steve

Ah Butch - You Da Man!

Great job - I didn't think a GIF file could go that large. I learn something here everyday!

Thanks,

Steve

Here's my attempt. I first tired to even out the skin tone with dodging and burning. Then I used the liquify tool.

To avoid the problem in the first place, take a look at THIS VIDEO for ideas for how to get people to look their best in pictures - there's a couple of suggestions for minimalising double chins.
