Just wanted to say thank you for the great tips in this thread!  I have been struggling with a Difficult restoration, with tons of mold damage, and very bad skin!  I have reworked it at least 4 times, and am still not happy with it, as it looks too painted.  I am going to try the lighten/darken modes on brushes and cloneing, and especially the masking technique!  I tried it on my 'finished' problem photo and can see already that I am going to rework it once again!! :crazy:
If it's artsy or Photoshop, I'll give it a try!
