its me again:

talking about the healing brush. is there any advanced technique available for using it, other than the usual one? most problems occur when i use the healing brush at medium sizes and touch lighter or darker areas than the actual one. using it for repairing cow-like areas of the skin/body makes sometimes nice blendings from cow-like to normal skin.
sorry for "cow" i dont know the correct english expression for this kind of natural skin-problem

I tend to agree that nearly every retoucher (and I mean the pros too) tend to over smooth skin by a pretty good margin. It is really easy to do when you are working with pixels rather than with a negatives and airbrushes. No offense but the whole plastic skin thing doesn't work for me.

Here is a very fast porcelain skin retouch (just did the skin didn't touch anything else). I've described my technique many times on this forum, so I won't go into it again. (It really helps to have a higher resolution image to work from too.)

PS I try to avoid getting the catch lights in the pupils if I can.

must read your technique. where did you describe it please?

slightly oversmoothing also for me sometimes a big problem, as it is very easy to oversmooth, right. i dont like it oversmoothed, but i tend to do it, as i want to blend away those largesurfaced cow-spotty areas in the skin, mostly in the areas of arms, legs, belly, shoulders, frowned forehaeds

blending back texture with highpass, which wont work perfectly with every kind of skin....unfortunately

overall i like your (you all) way of sharing experiences with people and friends. there must be a large number of pros who wont give any hint at all.
i also like to share everyting i know or have.

thanks

Couple of Questions

Only a newby to both the site and to Photo editing so hope my question/questions dont come across a bit odd .
Saying that there are no silly questions but , and leave the rest unsaid.
Firstly with the term "Grunge?". Would i be correct in assuming it means to get rid of the rougness from texture??.
Secondly with some of the advice given here on "how to do" with the tutorials, would it be okay if i were to copy for further reading whilst attempting to work through the process??.
Just thought it may be best ask permission first??.

I use the term to refer to blotches in the skin. Not to be confused with pores.
Have a look at a test "before / after" picture from the plug-in I'm working on.
Should be pretty easy to see the difference without the "grunge".

Anything you do for your own use, like copying, printing is a GOOD thing.
Posting stuff from RetouchPRO on any other site, without full permission, is a BAD thing.

OK?
