Double Wow!!

This is what I got in 2 minutes. Just the filter and levels adjustment. It takes just a wee bit of experimentation in cloning out the stars. The better you get the better the result. Eveyone should have this plugin.

Cheers
Dave

Here's my effort, used the filter, cloned out the stars, duplicated the background, a little noise, blur and masked the eyes, mouth, nose and eyebrows. Finally levels, USM at 20/50 to increase the contrast and then USM again to sharpen.

Hi JohnnyT,

Welcome to RP!

The free version of Neat Image comes without the Photoshop Plug-In .... in other words, it can be used as a Stand Alone program only ....

In this Tutorial you will find instructions on how to use it .... just scroll down the page to the NEAT IMAGE STAND ALONE part...

Hope this helps.

Hi Flora!

Did you ever end up doing a tutorial on how to get rid of Honeycomb texutre?

I'd love a link to it if you did.

Hope all is going well for you.

Nat

Hi Nat!!

So nice to 'see' you again!!!

My Tutorial was written a long time ago ... before I had discovered the FFT Filter wich can really work magic on removing Honeycomb texture ...

You can find everything on it ... even the link to the site where the FFT plug-in can be downloaded in this excellent Tutorial .. and needless to say ... just 'yell' if you need more help ..

Hope everything is well for you too.

Take care.

Hey Flora!

Nice to 'see' you again as well. No rolling blackouts right now in your life I hope

Yes I found that FFT tutorial and am reading it now and just downloaded the plugin. I am just playing with the border. I am working on a hi-res image (400dpi) and I used a 250px 'Stroke' of 128/128/128 Gray. Is that correct? It's to get rid of the ringing effect that you guys ran in to.

I've attached a section of the portrait for you to see. It's honeycomb city!

I also posted in another thread about the Decrack action I am trying to use. I wish I could figure out how to fix it so I can run the action. The image has a ton of cracks.

Thanks as always for the brilliant help Flora!

Nat

Hi again,

... still sporadically fighting against 'blackouts' .. but, fortunately, very seldom and not as prolonged as the previous ones ...

I had the same problem with the Decrack Action .... It seems to be 'programmed' to work on the 'background' ... so ... what I did was:

After other corrections ... I 'Created a new document from the current state' .. and flattened the new document so that it has only the background ... Run the action on it ...

The Action can minimize/remove either light cracks (using the 'Minimun' Filter) or dark cracks (using the 'Maximum Filter) ... so I duplicated the action renaming them to Decrack Light/Dark and eliminating from their steps the part I didn't need ... ie: the 'Miminum' Step when removing the dark cracks ... and the 'Maximum' Step when removing light cracks ...

Hope this helps ...
