  6. Hi I love your video but my image comes out with lots of black squiggles all over their face as my subject has facial stubble. Is there a way to easily remove that or tone it down?

  7. Great tutorial, but m,y 2015 version of Photoshop doesn't have an option for Oil Painting at all, like it's not even there and greyed out, it's just absent.
