Remove stubble from face
I have a nice .jpg, but the subject has stubble on his face. How can I make him look clean-shaven? Can I do that with GIMP?

Try the Heal heal tool, its like the clone tool, but it smooths the pixels while cloning from a clean source.

1 First, click the Heal heal tool.

2. (hover your mouse over the canvas/image first, you should see the brush, if not or if its not big enough) Change the "size" in Tool Options" of the heal brush.

3. Find an area above the stubble that isn't stubbly but matches the skin tone/color of the face.

4 On the keyboard, hold "cntrL + left-click" to define your source. Then let go.

5. You should now see two brushes, the one that isn't moving is your source, it will move when you draw, whatever it lands on will clone over, ,so keep an eye on it if needed.
Now carefully draw, just keep in mind that the direction that you draw is the same direction from your source.

You'll run out of source if you don't have large area of source, but if you let go of your click after you draw some, it will reset to the start of your source.
So for the above issue, clicking short strokes might be a good idea.

I found a great video tutorial on how it will work for your case:

The heal tool worked great and gave him a good shave.
