It would be interesting as well to know what technique they cover in your class next week, let us know how it compares to the results here.

Flora:

Great job, I like the way you use a lighter area just around the subject to remove the intensity of transition.

Didn't like the way I'd coloured the fine hairs, so re-worked it a little.

i re-did mine also. i got rid of the illumination that was around it from the original image, but now, even though you can still make out most all of the hairs, because the mask was only semi-opaque based on luminosity from the original, when i add the new background it partially overwrites the hair with the semi-opaque mask giving it a slightly off color.

i'm re-studying masks and selections again to see if i cant find a better way to lift the original, but so far no go. and i may have just hit one of the limits of paint shop pro as opposed to photoshop. it may also be that psp 7.xx doesnt allow for this where later versions might. i'd be interested in seeing what someone with psp 9.xx could do.

and flora, any time you want an apprentice, just let me know

K.

Yes I saw another post on hair topics and you used the same method, the poster had tried black and you showed alternatives. I think this one really emphasized your point, was this something you read about or developed yourself? It really does do the job
much easier than some other double masking techniques I have tried out. I can remember in the past painstakingly recreating lost hair detail, taking hours, hopefully this will not be the case in future..lol well maybe apart from those darn low res jobs you get every now and then.

Did you cover it this week? Would be interesting to know what was done in contrast to this thread.
