Cloning hair from photo

I would like to know how to remove the white light from this photo. I had tried cloning from the same area, but it doesn't look too good. The grain of the hair was not uniform and the clone tool was too visible. I'm using photoshop cs3. I'm use to cs2, so when I use the clone tool, it follows me in the direction of the stroke I was cloning. I tried cloning on all layers, current and below, and current layer, but the cloning tool still clone a different area instead of the area I had started from.

Just a thought, did you try painting with her hair color on an empty layer above it, then fiddle with the blending modes?

Re: Cloning hair from photo

yea i can see what you are saying the area is too big to clone withi something that is not uniform. I cant see the photo well because of the small size. But is there any hair data under that white? Is it possible to darken the area and maybe heal brush it?

Re: Cloning hair from photo

I was told that it was a bright light on the hair. I had problem uploading my photo at 100k. I went to file, save for web, jpeg as preset, optimize to file size to 100k, but the photo was still 169k, it works, but the photo was too small. Maybe someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

Re: Cloning hair from photo

I used a Negal hair brush. Due to the small size of the picture it did not give the best results.

Re: Cloning hair from photo

1. I suggest you should upload a better image size to a images server (imageshack, tinypic etc) or onother one which accepts bigger sizes. With this small resolution 5x5 cm nobody can work. Try to resize it at least some 10x10 cm / 200dpi.
2. "I used a Negal hair brush. Due to the small size of the picture it did not give the best results.

You should make your own hair brushes, it´s better and can fit the exact necessity.
Regards

Re: Cloning hair from photo

It is easy to make you own brush... Just open a blank layer above and fill with white...Make a few dots close together then define them a brush. In the brush engine make them solid lines and use fade to confine their length as you paint.

Delete the white layer

Pick a dark hair color and fill an area...then on another layer pick a lighter color and do the same...mix back and forth on these layers until it looks a natural mix.
