I started to Retouch this picture, but I lost the Hair Texture... how can I replace that, cause I'm happy with the face's result... I just want to replace or overlap the hair texture...
Here is a Tutorial for that, but I don't think it would be enough... HAIR
Take this with a grain of salt because I don't do much of this type of work...
What I did was...
* Created a Levels adjustment layer (settings = 40, 0.52, 110)
* Went to the Channels palette
* Ctrl + click on the RGB thumbnail (to load the selection)
* Select > Inverse
* Back to the Layers palette
* Turned off the Levels layer by clicking the eyeball
* Clicked on Background copy layer
* Ctrl + J to create a new layer based on the selection
* Duplicated this layer several times until it looked like there was enough
- - - - - - -
To finish I would:
* Merge the individual "hair" layers into a single layer.
* Erase the unwanted edges, eye, nose, etc.
* Repair the blotches.
* Select > All
* Edit > copy
* Go to the image you have restored
* Create a new layer
* Edit > Paste
...then fine tune the new hair in terms of tone, positioning, etc.
Hope this gets the conversation started.
and here's another couple of tricks, depending on which program you use. ps and psp shld both be able to do these.
dupe the background of the original.
on top of that, add the retouched image as a new layer making sure to line them up perfectly
add a new blank raster layer on top of the rest.
clone from the original duplication to the blank layer the hair and only the hair. in other words, you clone from the one with hair to the blank layer and make a copy of just the hair on the blank one.
make a copy of the retouched image (control c) and paste it into a new blank layer where your hair layer now resides.
using blend modes (luminosity, i think... or maybe soft light), blend the hair layer onto the the retouched layer.
another way to do it is:
take the original and dupe it on a new layer.
make a copy of the retouched and put it on the original image as a new layer
make a hide all mask (black) on the original
set blend mode on the retouch to luminosity
change the bits of the mask to show all (white) that you want to have show through on the retouched layer.
i think i've got those right there are lots of variations of these you can do, so just play around with it to find the method that works best for you.
Har har! Those are funny. Here's my 10 minute try along with the layer palette. I just used the background eraser to remove the background from the hair and a mask to blend the original hair with the new face. Also did a curve layer to match the hair to the face.
