A quick try. Repair tool, clone, contrast adjustments, some painting.

Re: Jewellery retouching methods

Shooting jewelry is one of the toughest project for us. It involves a good lighting and placement of the ring. We normally take anywhere from 12-72 shots around the 360 degree with a single elevation at 0 degrees. Talking about retouching all 72 images...yikes...that's why we want to make sure that the ring is properly setup before the shot.

Re: Jewellery retouching methods

Hi what do you think of this? I messed around with the levels, contrast and hue saturation.

Sinbin, welcome to RetouchPro.
FYI, no one has posted in this thread for 6 months. You might try sending a personal message to the member whose technique you are inquiring about.

Re: Jewellery retouching methods

Old threads often come back to life. After looking at this thread again it dawned on me that what I need to do is to shoot surfaces of jewelery that I can map onto the rings. The blurred approaches here lost all that realism of gold. You can tell the jewelery has been plasticized.

Take the inside edge of a good ring shot and make a Photoshop smart object of it...position and warp it into place...or even use the new 3d feature of photoshop to make a 2d shape behave in a 3d manner...then carefully mask it into position. You are using an actual ring image...a snipet of texture, glow, sheen and edging and masking it into the image after you have aligned and registered the new cut in piece. Since you are adding in a new piece of metal shaped and colored as your original...it will look more natural. I dont know of anyone making or selling jewelery parts. I know I make skin pore parts and eye parts and fingernail and eyelash parts...but I never thought of making jewelery parts that can be scaled and rotated and laid over existing jewelery. A ring with its edges and inside curves could be shot and recolored and placed on a transparent background.

Might be a good project for someone!

Cheers
