Re: Any hope for this Moiré?

I think ultimately my settings might have been a little higher than that (darn, now I wish I had written them down!), but they seemed to work out. Ended up adding just a tiny bit of noise to it as well... I had considered doing a little sharpening but I was afraid it would just put the moire back in. Ran the proof on the Epson and it seemed to be ok... I guess I'll know when the magazine is pirinted.

Thank you. The magazine shipped to the printer today... so I'll know in a week or so. The ad client was happy to know we found a solution, and wants to know how we did it... I'm pointing her to this site.

Glad to see that everybody was having fun while I was away.
Can't see myself as a genius, though - it's just you folks who are too nice!

Now, that's good news.

Seeing that this topic has come up before, and the technique also solved the other problem - seems that this is destined to become tutorial material.

However, then I would need an example image.
Would it be possible to use the image posted in this thread?
As this image is "client supplied" that would mean an OK not just from the client but from the photograper too. (We can forget the model's release this time )

OR

If anybody has an unrestricted image with moiré problems I would be glad to hear from you. Please?

Rô (part-time genius )

Excellent thread and Ro brilliant method. Flora as usual you manipulate the tools beautifully and get awesome results.
That was a fun one I tried various other techniques but non of them came close, I guess due to the fact it is not a standard screen causes moiré but a fabric visual one. Great work all.

Re: Any hope for this Moiré?

I added one small modification to the workflow already described; I modified the levels (moved the black point and white point to the beginning of the histogram) associated with the rusltant HP/GB/invert/overlay layer. This added more contrast to the filter and by moving the greay point(mid point) in Levels, I had the chance to vary the amount or moire removed.
Regards
Ian

  • Invert.
  • Set layer blend to Linear Light, and set layer opacity to 50%.
  • Apply Gaussian Blur, and adjust radius till Moire isn't seen and checks in sofa are.
  • Apply layer mask and mask out all areas that didn't have Moire to begin with.
hope the mods doesn't mind me reviving an old thread

2 questions if you can please help

1. how do I desaturate? I am using cs4 and I cannot see any option in the layer menu.

2. how do I implement the last instruction? (i.e. apply layer mask...)

please see attached image.

Thank you very much
