Re: Help Recreate This Look

After seeing your post, I just googled "duotone" and "overlay" and came up with that tutorial in this exact forum. Funny eh.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

You must be living right........

I will never get over finding RetouchPro..... there are so many ways I've been encouraged here..... whether it be in a meticulous, clearly written tutorial posted for all to glean from.... or, after a years absence, returning to find Doug, Matt, Craig, byRo, Flora, Danny, chris, Gary, Richard, TPaul, etc... faithfully helping, instructing, keeping the peace and maintaining the integrity of this site...... I use their work, as well as others' here, as my 'plumb bob' ....

What made me laugh wasn't that the tutorial was here but that I didn't automatically assume it was here......

OK...... where's Flora ....... guess I'll be making a donation now that I've reminded myself about all this good stuff !!

It's true, Gary...... and I mean it ........

Also, I beat you to it and made a donation thru the Amazon.com thing when I clicked RetouchPRO up on this menu bar, scrolled down to Donations and I was off and running..... Wow...... it was so simple.........

Re: Help Recreate This Look

That's an interesing look Dave, but not quite what i'm looking for. Thanks for trying though!
Btw, does anybody know how to turn off email notifications when replies are made to this thread? In my Control Panel I have "Default Thread Subscription Mode" set to "No email notifications", but I'm still getting emails to every reply.

Thanks again guys.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

Hi, sorry I took so long to reply - not been well today.

The method is quite simple:

1. levels adjustment:
I selected the hair under the arm as the black point and the light part of the pattern on her bra as the white point.

2. Dupe layer
Set the blend mode to overlay

3. High Pass
For this image I would choose a radius between 20 and 40 depending on the strength of the effect

4. Desaturate
You may want to desaturate the high pass layer as it can affect the colour - this is optional as you might like the effect, though in this picture you can see an increased saturation in the reds in her face, fingers and knees. There are various ways to remove this if you want to keep the other tonal changes but remove the redness - selective colour on the high pass layer should help fix any undesirable colouration, whilst retaining anything you want to keep.

Re: Help Recreate This Look

I've tried to follow Beth's instructions but I am having difficulty with "durotone". Regardless of what I do, it is not accessable. What am I failing to do?

Re: Help Recreate This Look

convert to grayscale, then covert to duotone. Choose your 2 colors.
