Path tool for apparel - Clothes restoration

Hello everybody. This time IŽd like to make a small comment abut the use of the Path Tool as a wonderful application for some cases when the clothes are totaly damaged and weŽd be forced to restore this by all means but also preserve the accurate shape or form of the one. IŽll show here an example of a recent restoration, some "hybrid" image we talked about the last 2 weeks. Was a mess and the only way to recover this was the paintbrush. Well, IŽm doing all this with the Path or Pen tool (P) and the Paintbrush (B) and finally a little of the dodge/burn for the external side of some shapes, shadows and small highlights lines. We must trace individually every shape with the Pen tool, save the path, transform it in a selection, paint inside as new, invert the selection, paint only a litte outside, eliminate the selection, make a new path for the next shape following the same steps and so on. After that, blur a little the edges and retouch them with burn/dodge for giving some more volume.
