Best tools to use to fix skin & Dress?

Hi there :) I'm wondering what tools would be best to remove the dry patches from the baby's head (currently I would use the patch tool), and also the best way to remove the wet patch on the dress so it's the right colour again.

Thanks!

Sorry, I'm new here... read and done. 

Very grateful for your help. I have money set aside for one of your courses so advice on which one to start with for editing images such as this one would be appreciated too!

The patch tool is definitely a legitimate approach here.  The only thing about that tool is that it can get tricky when you get very close to hairs - have you found that?

Here is another method I tried (a combination of this and this).  How does it compare to your patch tool one?

Do you think this would be ok?

I hope you'll start with the Raw Class. It's the first step in the workflow, and everything hinges on it.

The patch tool is so quick and easy - yes a bit tricky around hairs but doable. Will check out the fixing skin link later - looks like a great method to have under the belt, thanks.

Of course that would be ok for the dress. Looks great. :) 

I feel pretty on top of raw editing - I use bridge and PS - what would be next on the list?

Trust me.  On the basis of this photo, I can confidently say you are NOT on top of raw editing.

Ha - how did I know you'd say that ??
