I'd like to be able to do this in Lightroom. I assume it would be with the adjustment brush.

Anyone have a good technique for this. Here is an example photo. The woman holding the baby has a lot of shine in this and other photos.
Thanks.

there's a million ways to do this,

what works best for me
color dropper, sample skin color just next to each shine
paintbrush at 10% opacity, color in the shine (may take a couple of passes)
basically this just fills in the color or dulls the shine, looks great printed to 16x20

I used to try to clone or bandaid it, way too much work

A couple of techniques you can try directly in LR:

- Spot Removal brush in Heal Mode with a reduced opacity.
- Adjustment brush with lowered exposure, increased brightness, reduced clarity, and some color tint roughly matching the nearby skin. By clicking and dragging from the color picker of the color adjustment of the adjustment brush, you should be able to do a color pick from the image (that particular trick apparently doesn't work with ACR which is what I use).

I only have Photoshop, so this won't help unless LR has a clone tool. I use that in darken mode, about 10% opacity, to tone down glares like this. Just sample from the normal skin tone and paint over the glare. If you do this in Photoshop, I suggest cloning on a blank layer. (Would also help this image to set white point. It's a tad dim.)

ImageTrendsInc has a plug in for this. Very Fast and inexpensive.

Cool results, but looks like the plugin is for Photoshop, not Lightroom. I'll take a further look at it.
