How would you restore this overexposure?

Hello Everyone,

It's the same image again but this time it's about the over exposures on the right side of her face. I've used the healing brushes and borrow some skin pores and paste on her face using layer mask.

I am interested to know what other method would everyone use to restore the over exposes.

Thanks


helen

Re: How would you restore this overexposure?

Hi Helen

Here is what I did starting with the left image with the result on the right side.

- Take image and create a duplicate image above
- flip horizontally and then rotate and move to line up the eyes perfectly
- Create a Layer Mask on that new layer that is Hide All (all black)
- With a very soft brush at opacity 20% or less set to white, brush the mask at the location of the subjects left cheek (right side of image) to let the flipped image start to show through
- Adjust opacity of this layer if effect is too large

What this does is allow stealing from the left side of the image to the right side of the image wholesale so to speak. The tonality on the left side of image is much easier to work with. Of course, you may have to clone or heal out any duplication of moles etc. which I did not do. This image just took me two minutes to do the whole thing just as a sample of what could be done (probably overdone). Good luck/skill with your project (click on thumbnail).

You might want to try the Patch tool ?

On a duplicate layer use the Patch tool to select the areas on the cheek (make sure tool is set to source) and drag the selection into an area with tone e.g. forehead etc. Immediately after the move goto Edit / Fade and reduce the opacity to suit.

Hi Helen

Just as another technique you could use dodge/burn.

Maybe not as effective as other methods, but it's quick and it works.
