Just a Quick One

I achieved enhanced focus by copying the layer and then changing it to overlay mode and then by running an highpass filter at 1.5 over the copied layer to sharpen up the detail. This is just a 2 second fix without any additional enhancement.

Yep most definitely in photoshop 7. You find highpass under filter->Other->Highpass. You find overlay as a selection in the drop down box where the layer thumbnails are displayed (just above, usually says 'normal')

The first thing to remember is that the monitor that I am using here is not calibrated, HOWEVER:

If one compares her skin tone from the orginal post to some of the examples shown, her skin appears to have undergone some remarkable changes, not all of which I think are for the better.

I think the one point that is being missed is that many have said they are using the dress to set the white point. I have found that many wedding dresses and other white apparel (shirts, tuxes, etc) have "whiteners" in them so they really look white under various lighting sources to the human eye. When we use these clothes to set whitepoints, PS reads them differently than our eye does so we get a non-white white point.

A really good reason to use at least a gray card or better yet a color chart when you start your session so you will have a good standard to measure from.

i have to agree with mike here. watch those skin tones, folks. i see one that went yellow, another that went pale and one that went red. monitor differences may account for some of this, but i dont think all. the dress is dominant here, but the focus is still the woman.

That’s an interesting point Mike. But surely you are not suggesting that this dress should be anything other that equal RGB Values.

I do not know about this particular dress, but there are cases where the white clothing may not have equal RGB values in order for the skin tone to be correct. If I remember where I saw this, the skin was good while the dress went a little blue.

One could of course, place the dress on one layer, and correct it, while placing the skin on another layer and correct it seperately and on and on, would hate to have to do that for a great number of shots.
