Wasn't this explained in the original topic? Look up Flora

Re: cracks and stains galore

In your post you ask, "How do I do this to a picture?" Would I be correct that you want to know how to remove the damage?

The picture is printed on a textured paper. An FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) filter is used to take out that type of texture. The tutorial for using the FFT filter is here on RetouchPRO.

If would be helpful if you shared the type of retouching software that you are using. Not all programs have the same tools. The clone tool, healing brush would be most helpful in working on this type of damage.

Hello DCobb,

Thank you for your reply.

I like to know how to transform a nice good picture of me to the kind of cracks damaged one like the example one?
I do not want to remove any damage.
Thank you, rikla

Re: cracks and stains galore

May I assume that you are talking about doing this in Photoshop or some other program and not physically?

Hi Rikla,

You could try using the original image you posted as a distortion map for the image of yourself. I don't know if that would work.

Re: cracks and stains galore

Hello Alison,

Thank you for your help. English is not my mother tongue and I suppose I don't explain myself proprerly.

What I want to do is to take a good picture of me and to turn it into a spoiled picture like is shown in destroyed " the cracks and stains galore" photo.

Is it possible and with which technique? If not possible, ok.

Thank you, Rikla

Re: cracks and stains galore

Hi rikla,
Is this close to what you are looking for? I copied the blue channel, then made a levels adj., after that I burned the shadows and dodged the highlights. Then I selected the highlights . Bring this into the file that you are working on. Make a copy of your picture and put a white layer below your picture. Select the cracks, now on your copied picture hit delete. Now add a small drop shadow to your copied picture and adjust to taste.
