Question Question about the Dior tutorial

Is it remotely possible to get the Dior effect using Paint Shop Pro X? I love the effect and want to use it for a picture of my grandmother. I attached the picture so you all could see.

Let me know.

Re: Question about the Dior tutorial

I'm not familiar with the Dior technique.
Can you point me to an example of what you have in mind?

Re: Question about the Dior tutorial

I didn't use his tutorial and don't know how far you wanted to go but, this was done in PSP-X this morning. I used numerous layers, noise reduction, a floodfill layer of color to blend and reduce the highlights on her face. Cloning, erasing, and meshwarp to taste.

BTW: A lovely, distinguished lady.

Here is a translation of terms from Photoshop to PSP you may find helpful.

Edit to add: Changing her shirt to a darker color would help a lot.

I guess I didn't answer your question.

Yes, you can even use that tutorial in PSP-X. There may be different words for the same tools but that is what the translation dictionary is for.

Re: Question about the Dior tutorial

I was able to retouch some of the spots, but I don't know how to even the skin tone. Any suggestions?

Re: Question about the Dior tutorial

Here is a real quick retouch based on the Dior technique. Since the intensity of the effect is adjustable you can add or delete as much softening or detail as much as you want. The image is kinda low res. The technique works with Paintshop Pro. Instead of the surface blur you can use gaussian blur instead. You have to use masks to get the best results. Ive probably got too much skin detail put in here. Didnt have time to finish up completely. This is just a real quickie test. I would reduce that some.

Re: Question about the Dior tutorial

As far as evening out the skin tones you may want to try the tutorial byRo wrote as his method does a great job of evening the skin and saving texture detail (personally I like the effect of just his technique on your Grandma than my result with the Dior technique).

You can find his tutorial right here

Picture Two: My Dior attempt
