Jon,
Your attachment didn't attach. Please double check the size of the file to be sure it's under 100KB and try uploading again.


Wendy, Do you have another picture of the bride without the glare? That would give us more options to work with.


Thanks,
Jeanie

TRYing to upload attachment again.

Hey Wendy,

I downloaded your wedding Pix and after seeing the glare problem, thought there was really nothing I could contribute or do, but I had to give it a shot. Well, have a look, I did all the repairs with the eyedropper, paint brush, opacity & fill controls and the burn & dodge tools. (I only worked on the glasses/eyes)

Jon

>>>>Jeanie, CJ, Members,

Would really appreciate any feedback...

Thanks all,
Jon

Jon,

After playing with this for a few minutes, my hat is off to you Jon! Truth be told, when I looked at your fix at first, my feeling was that her right eye (the one we see on the left in the picture) looked a little "muddy" (for lack of a better term). But, after trying to fix this myself without having another photo to work with, I've decided your version looks just fine!

Wendy, This is a really tough fix without having another photo to give you the information which has been obliterated by the glare. Do you have one or is this all you have to work with?

Also, this photo has a lot of JPEG artifacting. I'm hoping that's just because you had to save at a low quality to get under the 100KB limit. Otherwise, that's something else you're going to have to fix as well.

Jeanie

Jon and Goldcoin -- you've done a good job on what seems to me to be a very difficult problem. With the glare hitting right in each of the eyes, it obliterated most of the detail.

Jon, it may be the jpeg artifacts in that left eye (facing) that shows up - it is uneven looking under strong magnification, but I don't know that I could do better. I tried for a short while and didn't get anywhere as good as yours.

Goldcoin -- what steps did you take in your retouch? The eyes seem a bit light but the effect appears even smoother than Jon's.

Red face Jon’s jabbering…..

Jeanie, CJ & Members,


I'm not quite sure how, but I just happened to stumble into RetouchPRO and feel very fortunate that I did. In the past 3 or 4 days, just surfing through the site, I've learned so much. There are so many talented people here! WOW!

I find doing this kind of work so very interesting and challenging, especially being a beginner, but what's really interesting about RetouchPro is how helpful everyone seems to be and it's such a motivating way to learn, to see a finished project you admire and then to have the process explained, that’s GREAT!

Okay Peeps, I'll shut-up now, but I just wanted to say thanks for the feedback, tips and instructions!

JON

I use the clone tool to remove reflections from glasses. If you have a hig res picture you canzoom in so your working with pixels rebuilding. You can clone an eye from one socket to the other. You build from place to the other and if you take your time no one can tell. I did this real fast and couldn not zoom in to much but it should give you an example.
