Re: Reversing 1900 outline retouching ?

I use Photoshop Elements 6, I used a lot of the soft light layers, some rebuilding, and a screen layer to reduce the border some. I also used the healing brush to blend some of the harsh lines. Its far from finished but its getting there

Re: Reversing 1900 outline retouching ?

Jeremy - many thanks.

Jonas's suggestion is also on the right track (his video is only 30 secs), but the final stage needs some shading refinement which is missing from the 11 steps I've listed above - perhaps I've missed something ?

Also, the advantage of the '11 steps' is that the full picture contains 4 other people which need retouching, and it might actually help to minimise the overall effort.

My suggestion was meant to be rather a starting point, than the full retouch :-).

Combined with any of the methods above it can give you pretty fast and good results (in less time than these methods alone probably).

I btw. once again fell in love with chillin's version!

Re: Reversing 1900 outline retouching ?

well, i take it back. i did use some lighten/darken on this, but it was mostly clone to get the heavy black out. there was also some push/smudge and painting, but mostly clone.

then, to dress things up a bit more i used digital camera noise removal, levels, tone mapping, fade correction and more clone.
