Hi Jeanie,

Is there possibly some steps you left out on this?? I tried it and didn't get anywhere. After changing the blending mode of the top layer to difference, there must be some other steps for this to work. I tried merging the visible layers, but then had to reduce the opacity to about 20% to get the picture back and the texture wasn't any less...

Thanks,
Diane

Hi Diane,

After changing the blending mode to difference, you then use the move tool, arrow keys and free transform to make sure the two layers line up. The reason to use difference mode is that when everything is lined up, the image should appear black (except for the reflections on the bumps in this case.) The difference mode is only used to line up the layers. It has nothing to do with actually removing the texture - that's why you turn it back to normal once you've got everything lined up.

I just worked on a photo recently with some pretty awful texture (though not honeycomb like yours.) I'll try to write up a short tutorial on it. (Hmmm - I wonder if one's already been written and posted here? I'll go check to be sure.)

Jeanie

Jeanie,

Never mind my last post; I tried it yet again and this time I got it. This technique definitely helps....

Thank you!
Diane

Yup! Roger's already written a great tutorial on this! (Thanks Roger! )

Scanning to reduce surface texture or silvering

He uses the Darken blend mode rather than reducing the opacity of the top layer to 50% as the last step. That probably works better, but it may depend on the photo, so try both ways.

HTH,
Jeanie
