Still dont get it

I'm still not sure how to touch up my jewellery like the attachment picture

I've tried, smart blur and surface blur to blend but still can;t look like the atachment picture. I've also used noise and changing the layer blending.

Can someone PLEASE..

Maybe if you post one of the pics of your jewelry, we could try.

Now I see, well, congrats for the ideas, but I think like everyone else, the shoot it's not good for the idea, I always take Product's pictures on day light, outdoors and try to put the product into a square of white sheets around, above and below the object.

Then, I use a semiprofessional digital camera, and take at least 10 pictures with different focus and speeds.

Then I could try to copy the lighting of a professional one object, like this jewelry that Janice posted. It's not easy, you have to creat the masks of the same lighthing effect, well, I'll do that, copy the reflections and try to use the "O" key tool (don't have the name in english) to increase lightness and darkness.

This might sound stupid but have you tried oiling up the jewlery before shooting. I'll test it out if i get a chance and see the effects..

Hey Flora

Sorry for not replying. What you did is just enhancing the picture.

What I basically want is to make the surface solid (yes I understand the pic is badly taken, by someone else and not me..and no..there's no other way for me to take it again).

You can see my attachment regarding the finished jewellery. You can see the surface is solid, colours blend with each other. There's some noise on the surface if I;m not mistaken.

I'm sorry..I know my post is annoying.

Janice,

this is just a real quickie, but is this more what you are after, it consists of using the smudge tool on a new layer and a little bit of dodge and burn on a grey overlay. As I said a real quickie.
