Nancy,

Don't pay too much attention to the eyes in the degrunge method. Since this was an experiment, I did not do too much with the eyes. The D/B method had more work done on the eyes. Compare the skin tones.

Original attatched.

Just as a note; When I say that the results that guy got wasnt of quality, I didnt meant to bash the technique, quite the opposite. I think the technique makes a lot of sense. If it can be use to save some time retouching without sacrificing too much quality, It will be a major breaktru as far as Im concerned!

Anyways Im trying to play with it to see how it compares. This is a quick retouch I did with the B&D workflow which I'll compare with the highpass one as soon as I figure it out. http://byloc.com/temp (rollover for before)

nice

Really good

Yip, all of the examples - bar one - on my website are with the dodge and burn method.

There are some clients like portrait photographers who want retouching done in a shorter time as they do not have a big ad agency budget.

I am always on the look out for new techniques to play around with.

Tried one pass.

This one uses the lowpass - but then substitutes back an "original skin" texture - touched up for the final. Have to experiment more with the high pass parts. Looks interesting.

Ok.. I tried to get decent skin with the highpass/blur technique but I havent had the type of results I was expecting, which was a bit dissapointing. I get very unatural artifacts, especially in highlights.. Thus, so far, I dont see how it would work for me. I am waiting for someone to prove me wrong. Im really rooting for this technique since it makes so much sense (in theory).

Meok: The problem most be the values that you are using for the GB and the HIGH PASS, if you use a higher value that the one byRo recomend, then you don't get any results.

I have being using this method in the last week and it works really fine, I did an action to simplify all the steps, and I'm very pleased

i am really glad to use the "high pass" filter now in daily work.
my steps are more simple:

1. duplicate skin, repair, soften, brush it, that it looks smooth and soft.
2. 2nd. duplicate the original above and blend it "soft" or "overlay", then selecting "high pass" lets you see the effect easily and you push the slider in high pass as far or less as you want providing the desired sharpness of the pores and skin details...

by the way, is there any difference in effect in your method/the tutorial and this short one?

perfect!
thanks

check this out guys, not taken by me, but how do we achieve such shininess? I know we've got the highpass plus clone tools and dodge and burn, but anyone can give an idea how such a shine is given?
