Thanks to everyone for the thoughts on what might be wrong with using the mask function. I just can not figure out why it would not work with that try. Ken I have used the mask tutorial written by Vikki and that is how I first heard about them. I started over on my picture and it worked and did help but did not give the retouch result I desired.
I suspect the whole problem may be the group step, I am not very familiar with doing that and was following a tutorial. I might have missed a step or something.
This post is to say thank you yo everyone who took the time to help. Even though I did not get this one figured out I learned a lot via all the information posted.
I think I will post the image I wish to restore, I can not post the whole picture of my granddaughter , she asked me not to, so I need to respect that, but I can post a portion of her complection that I am trying to retouch. It is small file but maybe you cansee what I am trying to work on.Maybe someone can suggest another way to help get a nice natural look to her face. Neb
I am going to look in the search section for a retouch tutorial.
I used Rô’s Degrunge Tutorial
(I did it the Long way – There is a quick Way in the Tutorial)
I have attached my layers with the numbers I used
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the PM’s
Here are three more ways to do the same thing
1) create a blank layer above the picture
2) Sample a colour next to the blemish
3) paint with a soft brush at low opacity over the blemishes
I used a brush size of 27 set at 40% opacity to paint over the blemishes and then reduced the opacity further to blend in
4) Add noise to match picture - Filter > Noise > Add Noise – Amount = 1
Nancy made a tutorial here
Use the Healing tool
1) Duplicate the picture
2) Use the Healing tool to repair the blemishes
There is a tutorial here
Use the Spot Healing tool
Is PSCS there is a new Spot Healing tool (I don’t have this in PS7)
I can’t tell you how to use this but it should do the job.
You will need to read the help files
Hope these help
