Retouching JEANS - serious help needed fast. Thanks

Hi I have to retouch 100 pairs of jeans on models. They all have wrinkles in them. Does anyone know the best way to retouch?

I messed with it a few minutes and did part of one leg.

Basically I'd copy part of the lower pant leg above the big wrinkle at the bottom and copy to a new layer and move it over the wrinkle. Do a COM+T to bring it in Free Transform and then select warp and slightly warp it to fit the outer edges of the leg. If it's done right you won't see and warping at all. Touch it up with the clone tool set to opacity of 30-40% and massage it to cover the rest of the wrinkling .

For the other wrinkles you might try using the clone tool set to 30-40% opacity and alternate setting the blend mode to lighten for the shadow wrinkles and darken for the wrinkle's highlights. If you lose the texture of the jeans with too much cloning, copy and paste a part of the good texture and set the blend mode of the layer to luminosity and adjust opacity to suit. Use the Free Transform tool if needed to make the texture fit into the area you are trying to add texture to.

I did this using mostly the patch tool. Also used the healing brush and the clone tool a little bit.

This wont help you with your problem but won't the very act of removing every wrinkle make them look fake?

Wow! 100 to retouch! You have your work cut out for you. I can't think of any easy way to do this but the attachment below took me about 30 minutes. If you have 100 to do, I reckon by about the 3rd or the fourth you will have refined your technique and could shorten that time to about 10 to 15 mins an image. At that rate it will still take you 25 hours to finish! Presumably you will be printing at roughly the same size as you posted here. I'm guessing this is for a catalogue of some sorts and not for the cover of a Fashion Magazine so as long as there are not any glaring errors, small inaccuracies will never be noticed (certainly not by the untrained eye).

My preferred tool of choice here is the Healing Brush. Lasso the area you want to heal and feather it. Here I used a feather of 1.5. Just about everything here can be done with the healing brush and once you get into the rhythm it is actually quite quick. The only place where I didn't use the Healing Brush was at the bottom of the leg. Here I copied unwrinkled material from below the knee, dragged it down, blended it in with Curves and fixed up the edges with the Healing Brush. I finally used a little bit of Dodge and Burn to make things a little more realistic. If all this is looking too smooth for you just make a copy of the original, drag it to the front, set the blend mode to Overlay and High Pass it by a fraction (0.7) and lower the opacity of the layer if necessary. This will just bring back a hint of the wrinkles and thus make it more realistic. (Attachment 2).

Hope this helps, and all the best to you.

Sincerely Syd

Another option...

As an alternative, you can mask in other denim and just add shading; here's my quick attempt.
