How to Fix a Nose in Photoshop


Even if you can't afford plastic surgery to fix a flawed nose, your portrait can show a straight and shapely nose, thanks to the magic of Adobe Photoshop. No matter what issue you want altered, this powerful graphics program can straighten, smooth, blend skin tones and remove blemishes.

  • Open your portrait in Photoshop. Profile photographs are the easiest to fix, especially when you want to reduce the size of the nose or remove a bump but even portraits where the model is facing straight forward can benefit.

  • Reduce the size of a large nose by selecting the "Push" tool from the toolbar. Use a diameter of approximately the same size as the ball at the end of the nose. Gently push the sides of a wide nose inwards, working very slowly, to narrow the bridge of the nose. To reduce the length, click and drag the ball of the nose upwards. Work slowly, pushing the nose little by little.

  • Choose the square "Selection" tool and select the entire nose area. From the "Edit" menu, choose "Free Transform" and use the handles at the corners and edge of the selection to move the nose inwards, upwards or in any direction needed to correct the flaw.

  • Select the "Clone" tool and choose a sampling of skin tone that you want the entire nose to resemble. Set your opacity to 20 percent and click on blemishes, moles or other flaws to alter the pixels gradually to match your chosen skin tone.
