Re: My best result ever - please give me your inpu

unimatrix001 - Nice job. I keep forgetting about the Patch Tool but I think this is the way to go. I used two selections (left half and right half) and Transform Selection to move the left half dowm and the right half up. Copy and paste and curves to blend.

I screwed up and worked on the original instead of the final but you get the idea.

Risking a very Ant-like comment.. I like the original better.

Sorry.

Unimatrix, you must have some serious skills! I tried Patch Tool several times but the black color goes away really slowly.. I think I'll go for the Duwaynes advice though.

Thanks again guys.

Re: My best result ever - please give me your inpu

i have never been able to use the healing brush or clone tool... could never get them to blend in properly. i pretty much use the patch tool for everything. but i guess its to each his/her own. i feel really comfortable using the patch tool. so i havent practiced with the clone or healing brush that much.

The lips; before was a cute expression; after she haves a less feminine mouth.

The hair behind talk about movement, in front those dont.

Pretty much everything I hate all in one picture. You've successfully removed any character the model had, that's quite some achievement.

Sorry, but I much prefer the untouched original.

LOL ByRo! What have you done with my pic? Hahaha, don't scare me like that!

Anyway, I appreciate the critique I've received here concidering the technical details.

Some of you guys like the original more, which is understandable since it's really a matter of taste and some people like it more natural

Thanks again!

Re: My best result ever - please give me your inpu

Out of curiosity, what did you use to create more hair for her? Was it cloning, or a specific type of brush that you used?

I'm working on a photo right now, but having a little bit of trouble getting the right look for loose strands of hair, so any help would be appreciated!
