Hints on this one?

Hi, guys



I need help with this picture and such. I’ve been trying to remove those nasty dots that are all over and if I manage to do that, I lose a lot of detail.

Is there a way to keep the wolves full and sheep safe?

All responses are greatly appreciated


Thanks,
Pavel

There's a tutorial called Dust Spotting Large Areas in the tutorial section. I did this in about 5 minutes using that method. Oh, and I blurred the edges of my selection before I did the copy via layer step. (I blurred using the quick mask/gaussian blur method the same as in the vignette tutorial)

Also, the image I downloaded was grayscale. You might scan it in RGB and check your channels. If the majority of the damage is on one channel, you can replace it (there's a tutorial for that too)

Hope this helps you out!

Balky, Do you have Katrin Eisman's book? There is a section in chapter 5 that deals with this sort of thing (starts on p.100 - Working with History).

1. As Jak suggested, scan the photo in RGB and figure out which one (or more) of the channels is damaged. If so, use the Channel Mixer to change it to gray scale and get rid of the bad channel.

2. Take a snapshot of that layer using the Create a New Snapshot icon on the History palette and name it "B&W".

3. Run the median filter set to a 2 or 3 pixel radius (set just so that the speckles disappear.) (You can also try any other blur filter that might remove the dust, but cause some blurring, such as Gaussian or Dust & Scratches.)

4. Take and name a snapshot of the blurred layer.

5. Use the History Brush set at Soft Light (or try Lighten) at 25-50% Opacity. Set the History Source to the B&W snapshot.

6. Using a large soft brush, paint over the figure's face and clothing. You should see the details come through the blur while the speckles are ignored. You don't need to paint over the background, since there's no detail there to bring back.

In the attached photo, I used the Dust & Scratches filter to blur out the speckles and the History Brush set at Soft Light at 50%.

Good luck!!

Jeanie
