Re: Beauty Shoot Problem with Hairs in the Face

Hello,
the dried, chapped lip areas are deliberately. That in the face are so much powder are deliberately too. But only the hairs disturb.

I dont need proposals what -RetouchBook- I should buy because I have 4 of them.

The problem with the hairs in the face is a special problem.

I want to remove the -hairs- without destroying the skin texture. It is no problem if the technique takes time. It should only work well.

If there is any idea tell me.

Thanks

Ok... don't really have the time to show you... but I've done this before.

I use D&B (Set of layers curves adjustments)

Hair by hair... with a very small brush (2 soft)

If I get the tima, I'll post sample

Keep the original pixels!!!

Godmother is right, Dodge & Burn the individual hairs, I would stay away from blurs, and other "quick fixes", because with a blur, you removed the hairs, but now you have a bigger problem, a very obvious area that you retouched. People will notice that in a heart beat. You always want to try and maintain the original pixels, the goal is to try and blend the areas around the hairs into the skin tone. Dodge the dark areas, and burn the light areas.

place my before and after files on top of each other, and look at the Before & After.

this took about 5 min.

hope this helps.

Re: Beauty Shoot Problem with Hairs in the Face

I would experiement with patchtool on a new layer...with around 40%opacity! go in deep around 200-300% and start using patch tool...remeber to use a clean hairless area with around the same skin color...then go around and do small adjustments so the are blends inn with lip area...I copy the area I want to patch up along with a clean area so I can work on a new layer...therefor the bace picture isn't hurt by my many mistakes...It takes abit notice and training to get teh patch tool to get right...

It's a nice way to work on big areas ion the face that's is very hard to fix...

Re: Beauty Shoot Problem with Hairs in the Face

Your problem is there isnt any skin texture there to preserve - this is beyond peach fuzz - the length and brightness of the hairs are obscuring all the underlying skin - To make a decent picture out of this - reshooting is the only option.
The only way you're going to remove that tash is by replacing it with texture taken from elsewhere (or making it up) - the skin texture under the nose is however is different to other parts of the face so you would probably have to sample texture from another photo - at which point you might as well reshoot since it wont be any more authentic.
All the skin texture in the sample you showed is bad, poor skin, large pores and lots of hair - you could save yourself a lot of time by getting better models.
