Looks to me like you figured it out. Ever considered cosmetic dentistry?

It's awful being literal-minded. Pity me.

"Well, first, I crop the image to show just the face and maybe some shoulders. Then I do color correction using the "levels" tool, especially to make sure the gamma and black level are pleasing. In the current avatar, I couldn't get the blue tones in my hair to come through without some adjustment. At this point I split the face off into its own layer separate from the background. Then I'd do some smoothing on the skin to hide any blemishes, scars, signs of old age, and (in the case of my current avatar) dirt. Then I spend quite a lot of time magic wanding the background away--it's good to start with a picture against a solid background that's not skin tone. Blue works well. Finally, I generate or choose a background, scale to an appropriate size, and save as a .png file."

Oh yeah, and there's an upload button someplace, but I see you found it. Nice work on the skin tones, btw.
